Ok, if I had read the previous reviews, I probably would not have found myself at Scoosi today for lunch. But this time, I’m happy I didn’t do my usual research! Instead, I followed the advice of a friend who loves pizza and loves Scoosi. Our party of three was treated to speedy, attentive and courteous service along with some great pizza at a fair price. Each personal pizza was distinctive, delicious and generous in flavour and serving size. The crusts were thin, crispy and flavorful. My Romano, topped with just the right balance of cheese, anchovy, capers and black olives was as authentic as any I’ve had in Beirut. A drizzle of the hot pepper oil served alongside was the perfect accompaniment. We were all much too full to even think about desert.
I’ve never really understood this trend of combining a Sushi menu along with Italian or any other cuisine, but as the restaurant filled with the lunch crowd, the Japanese fare appeared to be as popular as the pasta and pizza. The decor is bright and cheerful if not particularly memorable. Like too many restaurants in Beirut, the washrooms are not easily accessible to those with mobility issues. But although down a steep flight of rather narrow stairs, they were clean and modern.
So, if I found myself in Verdun with a craving for pizza would I find myself back at Scoozi? Sure, why not?
