Despite the really good food that Margherita offers, the manager of the restaurant was very rude and aggressive, especially when we asked to have our table cleaned because we had a cake for a birthday occasion. Even the waiters were nice and polite. Hadn't it been for the manager this restaurant would have gotten an easy 4 stars.

One of the few places in Beirut with really good homemade Italian food. Pizza's are to die for. Great atmosphere in a good location. Staff is very friendly and always smiling. Not my first time and will definitely not be my last time.

Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is okay not great .., some items on the menu are missing Pizza is actually good I ordered a stake ... It was average specially for Beirut standards In the end guests are asked to draw a number and if they guess right then the meal will be for free

Good quality Italian food, in a nice atmosphere. At the end of the meal you need to pick a number between 1-99 and the waiter pulls a bag full of numbers and if your number gets picked, you don't pay

Conveniently across the road from the Hilton, this friendly Italian restaurant is just the ticket. Really excellent food and the staff were most accommodating. I would thoroughly recommend the parma ham. You even have a chance to win your meal for free with a lottery when it is time to settle your bill. The menus are like notebooks with previous... More

I ordered a glass of local red wine with my meal and, of course, when I received the bill I discovered they had given me the most expensive wine they had -- a 2008 vintage, I was told later -- a small glass of which cost more than my entree. I challenged the manager about the scam and all he... More

Wide selection of Italian dishes, but small portion for the high money value. Amazing location in Jounieh that offers great view on Jounieh Bay near the beach.

This is a great place for families, couples, friends, any social group possible. Other than that, the food served is super delicious. Their new place is vast, cozy, and warm.
