Oh My God. The pizza in this little upstairs restaurant was literally to die for, despite the 25 minute wait the staff are friendly and the aunthentic Italian wine are amazing too. Must come and try it out, absolutely incredible.

We had four pizzas and honestly this pizza is the real deal. After being in Morocco for three weeks it’s a welcome break from the traditional tanger food. Fantastic service and win and food incredible

Recommended by the owner of the Riad I stayed, as the best Italian restaurant in town. And it was good! I had the fish of the day and it’s very fresh and tasty. Give it a try if you fancy Italian in Essaouira.

We ate at Silvestro's twice on our visit to Essouira. The pasta portions are large and the sauce was delicious. The pizza was excellent, cooked in an authentic pizza oven (the cooking of the pizza can be seen from the tables in the restaurant). Possibly...More

This busy restaurant shared with us their lovely home cooked pasta. The flavours were very good and servings generous, though a few herbs might have made the dishes of risotto with porcini mushrooms, alfredo spaghetti and gnocchi even better. If you don't mind waiting, it's...More

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
