Fine Italian fare

I visited the Hamra area outlet. The facility is pleasant, and the service was good. Their portions were quite big (I could not finish my meal).

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.
