Top Quality Pizza

During a week long stay in Beirut I ate here for dinner twice. The pizza is outstanding and the restaurant also offers a good selection of beers and wines. Staff was friendly and the service was quick. For top quality pizza in Beirut I definitely recommend.

The good thing about this restaurant is that it is always located along with its sister restaurant soto ( serves sushi). Service is warm, quick and they allow you to order sushi from the next foo restaurants, hence it is a good variety for diners. The chilled Italian wine is always a good choice there, bresaola and pizzas are a... More

I always order food from this restaurant, mostly deliveries, I love the spinach ravioli with pink sauce. The restaurant is dark so this is why I prefer deliveries but food is good.

I am a big fan of Italian food and been to many places; this one is a unique restaurant. I've been to the Hamra and Gemmayzeh branches and loved them both. Service, decoration and food are amazing, everyone should try it. I actually had one of my best meals there. I hope these high quality standards will remain for a... More

I like the salade de chevre with its walnuts and honey dressing, pizzas and truffle pasta. Don't expect gourmet food but good Italian in all its basics and some extras

Very few places maintain their quality and this is definitely one of them. Their pizzas are as fresh as they've always been and their service is still great. Kudos.

Olio offers a decent Italian cuisine, not the best in town however some dishes are better than others. Personally his pizza is a disappointment for my taste, other pasta dishes are way better. Nice wine selection and prices range from mid to higher, you can expect to pay around 30$-40$ per person if you order a salad and main dish... More
