Issa is an amazing cook and a wonderful conversationalist. Appetizers were stunning, Hummus, Babaganoush, all the classics were done with the extreme care and authenticity. The best Middle eastern food I had in my travels around Italy. The entrees we had were fried eggplant and a stunning rice dish. High Quality ingredient, and spiced extremely well. Very vegetarian friendly, not... More

We arrived in an empty bar, after a while the lady found us and showed the dining room. Issa is utterly friendly and somewhat irriverent, but we accepted his rough irony. Ok, let's eat something! Nothing to choose... More

Wonderful meal with wonderful hospitality! My husband and I were traveling in the area, and decided to check TripAdvisor for recommendations. Amazing! We were blown away by the decor and the food! The food was outstanding and truly authentic. Issa and his wife Luci were one of a kind. We hope to visit again!

I went to the restaurant because one of my friends was looking for an arabic food restaurant and i wanted to try it before telling him. The food was amazing and Issa and his wife treated me like family, they invited me to sit with them and their friends. I had one of the best nights i had in Italy.

I've been to Lebanon many times and Issa prepares the same authentic food you find in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria. The food is perfection, the restaurant decor is phenomenal and the service by the owners is unbeatable. If you want a nice and social, tasty dinner this is a must. Worth the drive!! Thank you for the wonderful evening and taste... More
