Looking for a good [excellent] Italian restaurant in Beirut? Margherita is probably one of the tastiest in town. The appetizers and salad were super fresh. As a main dish, the seafood pasta was superb.

Great service. Hearty, tasty Italian food. As a regular solo diner, the option of dining at the bar or at a small table makes you feel welcome. The chocolate chestnut cake was rich and moist - perfect and the prawn risotto as a risotto should be.

A splendid spot right on the beach in the middle of the Jounieh bay. A little far away from all the noise as well. This restaurant doesn't look as fancy as it should considering how good the food is, and also how expensive. In fact i wasn't impressed by the interior design. The restaurant itself has been adapted from a... More

This is one of the best pastas I have had, note not the best but one in the top. A great selection of dishes and a good wine list. Definitely a must if you want Italian food when in Beirut.

Very good experience I visited the restaurant with the family on a sunny Sunday. The place was fully booked, the personnel was cry helpful and kind welcoming us and Serving us as well. Despite the load the kitchen was very quick serving the food. Delicious dishes should keep this standard

We went here for a work lunch so it wasn't too busy, the pasta dishes are divine, customer service was good overall but could be sharper. Worth a visit

On three different occasions the food was great. However, most of the waiters and waitresses could use some training in explaining the dishes. The menu needs to be reworked. It's too big and it takes ages to go through it. It's not user-friendly. The place is better to have discussions with friends since it's calm and comfortable. Parking is available.

I love this restaurant because of the authentic Italian atmosphere and decor and the excellent food. I love their variety of dishes, the bread with olives and the fun of picking a number that could make you eat for free if you guess it. Nice concept.
