The food was good, the service and atmosphere too. Decent wine list. A short 15 - 20 minute walk from the Médina just one street back from the beach front. Happily go back again when tired of Tagine.

Nice restaurant managed by Italians. Well decorated, great atmosphere. By the time we were there, there was live music. We ordered two pizzas, which had thin dough, and both were very tasty and well done.

To start I’m Italian so it’s damn hard to impress me and damn they did! From the carpaccio to the pasta and pizza, it’s as good as back home, you won’t find better anywhere in Morocco period!

Description
Charming Italian restaurant. In this beautiful location you can find products imported every week from Italy. Fresh pasta like ravioli and gnocchi are home made every day. Carpaccio, italian charcuterie and tiramisu are real must. Pizzas are like the best you can find in Italy.
