Having read the feedback on this restaurant we thought we'd give it a go. To start with, the place is so grubby - tables, mats, menus, decor - way beyond shabby chic. The menu choice is limited & when one main is sold out &...More

We started with the bruschetta - simple yet delicious - followed by the bolognese and carbonara. Both were incredibly delicious! You can tell the couple who runs the restaurant really take pride in the food they serve. Highly recommend if you are in the area!

Wonderful fresh prepared food with a relaxed fun service. A family affair that shows passion for simple but tasty Italian food. Spagetti Bolangese was mouth watering and the chili chocolate cake was light and had a nice bite back. Really recommend.

Highly recommended. Pasta was amazing, as was the tiramisu. It's a small place, so can imagine turns busy in peak season.

Small and cozy Italian restaurant in the heart of the Medina of Essaouira, brother of the historic restaurant in Capoliveri, Elba Island, Italy. Few tables, to satisfy the desire for good Italian cuisine and good fresh fish. Welcomed by Mirella, the owner, you will feel at home, to sip a coffee or a tea while enjoying the homemade desserts.
