This restaurant is close to Palazzo Ducale in a quiet narrow pedestrian street in old Genoa. It has a lovely ambience and decor, excellent service and very good food. The owner was very helpful.

I really don't know where to start just grim Service shocking argued singha beer was Italian!! Food was terrible and I have visited a lot of Lebanese restaurants to compare it with. No tabbouleh even though on the menu.

This place looked promising: the ambience and the spiral staircase up to the mezzanine floor suggested some style. The food failed to deliver: rather stingy portions, overcooked vegtables and a sad piece of chicken in a thin sauce. They had run out of hummus, a mistake in a Middle Eastern restaurant. The service was charming and efficient. The white Lebanese... More

I have been there several times, and always ordered the Masat Saghir (sampler of six appetizers); most of them are quite delicious; however, almost invariably the waitress would "forget" to serve the sixth appetizer and had to be explicitly reminded. Sad to say, after a moment of embarrassment she would often resort to pointing to a spice bowl on the... More

This place is awesome. All dishes are really Arab food, the owner Nabil is coming from Jordania, and the quality and service are outstanding both. The only complain is the restaurant dimension, you need to call and reserve your place in advance.

Authentic middle-eastern restaurant (the owner is Palestinian). Good, tasty and interesting food. I recommend the mixed appetizers, and their couscous, especially the one with fish.

I’ve been to this restaurant twice, once about 9 months ago and was determined not to return because our group was overcharged, the portions were small and the owner wasn’t very welcoming, friendly or helpful. Decided today to give the restaurant a second chance because the food was reasonably good, but we should have taken a pass. The owner greeted... More
