Seeing the other review, one agrees that they should highlight the different ages of wine along with the price. However, this doesn't prevent the fact that it is one of the best meals you may have. The 1 meter pizza (60$) along with three toppings is a very nice sharing plate. The iceberg salad with Gorgonzola cheese is a must,... More

This place used to be chez Sophie. I went to Totò three times for lunch and each time was a delightful experience. The owner was there the first time, thought fully booked he managed to find us a place outdoor as we wanted. Waitress was sweet and attentive. Wine recommendation and glasses were never empty :) Carppacio di branzino, asparagus... More

Located in one of Beiruts lively nightlife districts, la Casa di Toto is really outstanding in many respects. Although the place is all the times fully booked, they care trying to find a table for you and even called us back after an unsuccessful attempt in the morning letting us know that a table has become available. We were sitting... More

Worst service ever...... We had an issue with the wine service at TOTO. We ordered a barbera wine bottle although while paying the bill we realized that we were charged 4 times the price mentioned the menu!!!! After highlighting the error the waiter and us realized that the wine menu contains 4 different barbera bottles with a different range of... More

The owner and his brother in law (Sophie's husband) greeted us at the door. The owner was somewhat mean and pretentious (having that I'm-better-than-you attitude) which later changed 180 degrees when he saw the kind of wine we ordered (yes, shallow). Now let's review the restaurant: The place is simply gorgeous with a cozy romantic setting and an old-house-meets-modern-days design.... More

The chef is extremely talented, and the service is impeccable. I like that its a family run operation. It is, by far, the only restaurant in Lebanon that can live up to New York or Chicago fine dining standards.

Although the place is cosy and food is good, this is a place to go if you want to get ripped off by a bunch of wanna-be restaurateurs. Credit to chef Sophie for being the main thing keeping this place going with her above average talent, however management is poor and unprofessional, looking for a quick buck rather than customer...

We had a group lunch at Chez Sophie. The food and the wines were both exquisite. The ambience is that of a good fine dining restaurant with top service in a renovated old house. The restaurant is small and cozy taking 30-40 guests, so make sure you reserve early on.
