I love Italian cuisine and during my last business visit in Tripoli a friend suggested me to try this restaurant. A great experience both in terms of food and service. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxing; the ingredients are fresh and well cooked; the service is impeccable. I will definitely come back!

Cosy atmosphere, wonderful service and a good selection of Italian cuisine. I always go there when I need to eat tender and tasty beef. The restaurant is very clean. Close to the exhibition centre, good place for business meeting. Good for families too.

Just the name, nothing more. Unless you don't know the real italian cooking. A phatetic imitation and the price is not cheap compared to the overall quality. Look at other restaurants in Tripoli and you'll get better satisfaction. Paul

I’m a picky Italian “gourmader”. I like fancy restaurant where the quality has to be at the top. When I travel I’m obsessed by tasting the quality of Italian restaurant abroad.

The restaurant is nicely redecorated and decoration is much better than before the revolution, but some of the food could be better. The mozzarella tastes like plastic and doesn't come close to the real Italian mozzarella di buffala. Spaghetti was OK and worth a second visit.

Tired of Libyan soup, eggplant, and hummus? Hail yourself a cab and hike down to the aptly named Italian Restaurant - but not before 8:30 or 9:00, when otherwise empty tables start to fill up. The pizza and pasta are almost authentic enough to convince you you're back on the mainland. A bottle of red wine would be great, but,... More
