Although it’s not exactly traditional Moroccan food- it’s delicious and a must eat in Essaouira! It’s a little out of the way from the tourist part of town, but the walk was very nice. We ordered pasta with mushrooms and shrimp along with a bottle...More

Thank you for your visit. Just to rectify, our beautiful Spaghetti ai frutti di mare with giant shrimp is at 150 MAD, about 13.5 Euro. May be you payed 16 Euro in other restaurant?

The kitchen is simple but really Italian and everything is tasting very fresh. The music is not too loud and a pleasure for the ears. With the wine you have enough choice. I love it that the restaurant has a cosy atmosphere.

Probably the best ravioli/tortellini fresh pasta I’ve had anywhere, including Italy. They had 4 different types when we were there, all amazing. Nice wine list, pizza and a good bar. Great atmosphere and the owner/chef was there both nights.

After 6 nights of moroccan food we came here for pizzas. And they were excellent. Also it was so nice to be able to enjoy a glass of wine with my meal.

Location isn't great but once inside ,everything is Italian quality. It's the perfect place for a relaxing evening with great food and nice athmosphere. A bit expensive for Morocco but well worth the visit!

Description
Charming Italian restaurant. In this beautiful location you can find products imported every week from Italy. Fresh pasta like ravioli and gnocchi are home made every day. Carpaccio, italian charcuterie and tiramisu are real must. Pizzas are like the best you can find in Italy.
