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.

Faqra branch has lots of weird moments in regards of their staff; sometimes they are extremely pros and sometimes really really bad BUT the food was always very good. I do enjoy Olio's pizza with...

The good thing about this restaurant is that it is always located along with its sister restaurant soto ( serves sushi).

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.

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
