The location is great and nice set up even if the place is small but looks like a real Italian Trattoria! Pizza had a good crust and sauce but the prosciutto was not fresh: they should cut it once the pizza is ready... Service very nice and professional Worth a visit

This restaurant has great food. It reminds you of the authentic restaurants in Florence and bologna and Tuscany. The setting is far from "posh", the atmosphere is happy,laid back especially that it is located in a nArrow street in hamra(the heart of Beirut) The good food,and wine and the noise from the street will take you on a great journey!!

I really enjoyed the food there... 100% italian taste .. The ingredients of the food reflect the italian passion ... The dishes are super awesome .. And the most delicious dishes are the italian pizzas that are prepared traditionally and baked using wood-based ovens .... I really feel Italy while I am there !! Bonne Appetite !!!

We were 2 people, we ordered bruscetta pomodore, shrimps salad, and the mista pizza. The food is good, the service is good, staff is nice and polite. What we ordered was enough for 2 people and even we could have spared the bruscetta. About the food, the tomatoes used in the bruscetta were cherry tomatoes cut in half, with exquisite... More
