“tasty and friendly”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I spent two days in Beirut last August and went twice to Apettito. I think it say it all. First of all food is great. Service is fast and very friendly. I enjoyed the Italian styled decor and atmosphere. I surely recommend this place for everybody who wants to feel a little Italy in Lebanon.

“Authentic Italian in the heart of Beirut”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A nice cozy place with an authentic taste! Fast service and pleasant waiters. They have popular Italian dishes as well their own specials. The Cannelloni di Melanzane and the Pizza Fromaggio are the best dishes I've tried.

“Pleasurable experience ”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Welcoming ambiance and staff. Classic Italian restaurant decor. Excellent service in terms of friendliness, speed of food service, providing clear explanation of the different dishes. Good menu variety. Food was good. Had the melanzani alla parmigiana (very yummy yet not the best I've ever had) and the pollo al marsala (the risotto was especially al dente). I do agree with other reviews that it's not the best Italian food in town. Overall experience was pleasurable. Would surely revisit and recommend to friends.

“Brilliant place”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food, great atmosphere and the best orangecello you could have. Pizza a must to try, salads very niami and original. All items have a special twist that makes the dish special. Highly recommended.
