Maybe my favourrite italian place in Lebanon. For seafood lovers, a "Margherita Mare" branch is open in the old souk of Jounieh; in a nice antique neighbourhood boarding the sea, you will enjoy the freshly made pasta along with some prawns :)

I'd agree with the review that described (some of) the staff as rude.

Our experience was on a quiet evening just after Christmas. The restaurant was about a third full and we asked for a table just for drinks as we'd had dinner elsewhere. We were shown by a friendly waiter to a small table with stools opposite the bar and given drinks menus.

We spent a few minutes going though these until the maitre d' appeared asking if we were having a meal. We said no. He then asked us to leave saying it was a restaurant (something we were already aware of!) and refused to explain why and was quite rude and overbearing. The original waiter appeared but was dismissed with 'this is a restaurant', I'm sure he was also aware of this. Overall, we got a very poor impression of Margherita.

Having said all that the food looked good :)

I went for lunch with family, arrived starving so the guy was really cute to set us a table in less than expected waiting time (he said first come back in half hr:P).
The waiter was really lovely, calm, knows the menu very well. However i found it weird they don't get bread basket and condiments at the table.We ordered gnocchi with mozzarella cheese (average for a home made pasta) fresh mozzarella with cherry tomatoes pizza (loved the crust not the stuffing) minestrone (really delicioussssssssss) and linguini with tomato sauce and pesto on the side (also average, and the pesto sauce looked so industrial didn't like it at all).
I can't say i didn't like the lunch, but surely had better experience in other Italian restaurants. Anyway i would come back to try their risottos and see!

Went to Margherita for a friend's birthday. It's a small place but very crowdy thus very noisy.
However the atmosphere was good and food was excellent. I loved my pizza.
