Gemmayze, Beirut, Lebanon


The word pizza, as it is currently spelled, was used to describe both sweet and salty pies in the Middle Ages, but took the form that we are now familiar with in pre-Renaissance Naples, a large city in central Italy.

It’s said that the pizza that made Naples world famous is the Pizza Margherita in Italian or Pizza Margarita to the rest of the world. A local man and the town baker called Esposito first baked it in 1889. He created the pizza in honor of a visit to Naples by the Queen of Italy, Queen Margherita which she loved, and what eventually became Pizza Margherita has since become an international standard. Neapolitan pizza is still widely regarded as the best in the world, probably because of the fresh ingredients available to Neapolitan pizzerias.

Not the best Italian restaurant, but that's not so bad. Avoid Japanese menu.

Terrible service. They never checked on my table. We were one of only 3 other tables to 2 waiters and the manager and still no one checked on us. I had to repeatedly ask for items like forks, napkins, our drinks etc. I eventually had to get up and ask them for these things and then get up again to ask them for the check.
