This quaint downtown restaurant is worth keeping on your pizza go-to list. We had a great meal here with the meat pizza, tomato and truffle, and 4 cheese. All were very tasty. The pizza is super thin and ingredients fresh. I'd definitely go back.

Margherita

Reviewed By pindawal

We stayed in the area and we were reaching our fill of local food(!) when we stumbled across this place! And glad we did! We ordered the four cheese gnocchi and the cheese ravioli with pesto cream sauce. Both were excellent with the pasta cooked well. The gnocchi was topped with dried orange peel slices which were oddly tasty and helped with the richness of the cheese sauce. Oh and if you choose the right number then your meal is free!

Appetito Trattoria

Located in the vibrant City of Beirut, Appetito Trattoria is a cozy escape from the hustle bustle world, right in the middle of Hamra & Gemmayzeh. The design concept is a homey, rustic, Italian trattoria, and the food is wholesome and always fresh.

Reviewed By pablo_the_sonar

I work and live in Hamra and come VERY often to Appetito - not only it's practical, it's also very good (and fits all the criteria of a good Italian Trattoria)! I come with my wife, friends and colleagues. The menu is variated without being too large, the "forno a legna" (pizza oven) functions very well and the staff (headed by Diana) is helpful and friendly. Don't miss it!
