Great tasting pizza and pasta Restaurant...if you just relax and enjoy the atmosphere, which too many people seem to have forgotten how to do nowadays...Morocco is one of those places where you can lose track of time, lay back and enjoy the ride!

It is a good place if what you search for is big portion. But of you are a foodie, better keep walking or you'll be dissapointed.

Great food. Lovely atmosphere. Sat on roof terrace. Pasta amazing. Veggie pizza brilliant. Waited for an hour and a half before food arrived. Would willingly eat here again, but only on the condition that the wait isn’t so long.

If you're fancying a break from tagines like we were this is a great option. The pasta portions are in all honesty way too excessive, but very tasty. Washed down with a bottle of montepulciano. Great.

Real Italiaan Pizza with alcohol ! For dessert I had the panacota with peach. And the service is fast. All good reasons to visit this place, especially when you do not want a tajine or couscous again.

I've been to Italy and I still think this is the best Italian I have ever had. I'm shocked they are not higher rated. The food was amazing!!!! A must in Essaouira if you want Italian.

We ventured into this restaurant up a staircase and were surprised by the interesting decor which was non Moroccon in style! The Italian host was patient and nice and the food was great (gnocchi Gorgonzola to die for!). We had a bottle of Moroccon Cabernet...More

We were a group of 15 and had a super evening with tasteful Italian food. We can recommend the pizzas, pasta penne and lasagna.

Quelques marches à grimper et vous voici totalement dépaysé. La vue des antipasti, fromages et vins d’Italie ouvrent l’appétit. Silvestro, en chef italien qui se respecte, veille jalousement à l’authenticité de sa cuisine. Les pâtes sont faites maison, les pizzas croustillantes, cuites au feu de bois et les produits tels fromages, prosciutto, huile d’olive et café importés. Cela donne une carte riche et variée à savourer dans l’atmosphère chaleureuse d’une salle toujours pleine d’une clientèle fidèle
