After 4 weeks of tagines, cous cous and brochettes, it was lovely to eat here. We ate here twice during our stay in Chefchaouen. The pizza, pasta and beef fillet were excellent and the desserts were really good. The restaurant was nicely decorated and had a great atmosphere thanks to the jazz music they played.

After two weeks of tagines in our travels in Morocco, we were happy to have our hotel manager recommend a pizzeria, just to have something a little different for a meal. We fell in love with this place and ended up eating there three times.

The spaghetti napolitana was simply heavenly. The prices are really reasonable. The art on the walls is really cool (lots of circles that abstractly represent pizza or plates of pasta). The restroom was nice and clean.

Highly Highly recommend.

I heard so much about this place that I had to go. Once there I found the waitress to be very rude and not welcoming. She then started warming up eventually but had an attitude for some reason. Pizza was good, I'm from Chicago so I won't say it's great but for Morocco I'm sure it is. Also a great value! I would go back but hopefully some friendlier staff will be there. I should also note that they were not busy, I was the ONLY one there!

This place had the makings of something special-- really cozy and jazz from satellite radio. That's where the special ends.

The hostess/waitress is horrible. She ignored us for a good 20 minutes (granted she was busy so we let it slide), until we finally asked if we could order. We tried to order-- in THREE different languages---. So if you speak English, Spanish, or Arabic, she will tell you she can't understand you. At the end of our ordering she just rolled her eyes at us and I had to physically get out of my seat and show her the juice I wanted. OK, I understand that language might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Then we get our pizzas.

Prefab dough, canned tomato sauce, canned mushrooms. Hardly anything to celebrate.

Meanwhile a French couple walked in and the waitress ignored everyone else in the restaurant to dote on them.

We could have walked out without paying since the waitress ignored us until I gave her the money for the bill. And we weren't the only people having issues, it seems the whole restaurant was having the same problem.

We left hungry and disappointed.

primero les agradecemos su comentario aunque no refleja realmente nuestra politica.

las cifras hablan por si mismas, el numero de los comentarios favorables refleja nuestro trato a nuestros clientes.

aun asi hemos tomado medidas con la camarera y le pedimos disculpas a su nombre, y tratamos que estas situaciones no volveran a ocurir, porque nuestra imagen es mas importante que las ganancias lucrativas.

Gracias otra vez.

Very beautifully decorated, with a calm and pleasant vibe. Nice Italian place with great food. Went there with my wife, had pizza, which was very good. We really love Moroccan cuisine, but after a week of tagines, brochettes, couscous and most of all, bread, it's a really nice change.

Service was good, but a little annoying. As soon as we had the last bite and dropped the fork, the waitress was already there to clean up the dishes. Nevertheless, we really did enjoy the meal.
