This Italian restaurant has a lovely outdoor seating area which creates a nice atmosphere. The food is good, but nothing to boast about. A little on the expensive side for what you eat... it could reach 50USD per person.

Went there on Tuesday and ordered a pasta. I must say I was positively surprised by the quality of the food and the speed of the service. Will definitely come back again and try their other dishes..

This is truly a great restaurant. Every time I go there with my family we enjoy a very nice experience: very good food, very reasonable prices reflecting the quality that is served and most importantly, a super kids friendly environment, a very hard thing to find in Lebanon nowadays. It is definitely a place that I highly recommend.

Surrounding and atmosphere ate very nice. Unfortunately this restaurant was one of the best italian in lebanon but deteriorate due to low quality of ingredients used... avoid the so called nutella pizza, they are proud to show you a local low end chocolate used instead of the nutella

A nice restaurant located on a big plot of land with a nice playground for kids. We had the aubergine salad and the tuna salad and they were both super. Their daivola pizza is excellent. In addition to that i had the chicken breast with mushroom which was perfect.

You are not going to have the best Italian lunch of your life. The food is decent and the service is quite good. What I recommend mostly is to go there if you have kids - they have a big garden with a playground where kids actually have a great time. It's a great location in the middle of the... More
