Appetito Trattoria Beirut – Ciao Beirut

Restaurants

"Appetito Trattoria" in Beirut serves some of my favorite Italian food in the city! From the first moment you walk inside you know it's a special place...

Appetito Tratoria is a beautiful hidden gem in Broummana that serves Italian food. As soon as you get there, you'll see a wall covered with flower pots, with small tables in front of them -- Instagram material! When it's sunny, that's the best spot to sit and have a few drinks. Then you go inside, and you can feel the Italian vibes as soon as you walk inside -- from the red and white checkered tablecloth to the pizza oven.

Being a fan of Italian food, I had to try everything on the menu. The melanzane, bruschetta, veggie pizza and ricotta penne are so good that I recommend them. Plus, they have a wide variety of wine, red, white, rosé and local and Italian. You could never go wrong with any choice. They now offer a buffet option with all-you-can-eat and soft drinks. The manager and everyone working there are very nice and helpful.
