Romanesca is a favourite lunchtime spot for people working in the MenzahV/Carnoy area and gets very full indeed. This was our first visit and we both had deliciously tender fillet steak with mushrooms and mixed vegetables. This was quite filling so we were glad we had not started with a selection from the salad bar as entree. Very nice indeed.

WARNING: address on trip advisor is incorrect, use their Facebook page for GPS. Great Italian food, good service. No alcohol, though, which would have gone great with that amazing pasta or ravioli...

Great place to savor Italian food with a Roman accent at its best in the heart of Tunis. Great pasta dishes an excellent "antipasto" spread and varied main courses. Small so reservation might be needed, Friendly staff and Italian owner who speaks a number of languages. Taaxi ride from Av Bourguiba should set you back around 5 dinars about 2... More

The food, the ambience, the staff, the location...all wonderful. It was a great refuge from the rest of the city, and the other restaurants we considered. It's really a hidden gem of contemporary decor and great food. We were in Tunis for 3 nights, and wound up eating there all three of those nights.

Best Italian Restaurant I have visited not just in Tunis but in most of the countries I have visited. The antipasto and pasta selections are hard to beat - down to earth, uncomplicated and very Italian.
