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 chilled Italian wine is always a good choice there, bresaola and pizzas are a... More
