Lovely Italian restaurant with a relaxed , stylish but comfortable interior. Very tasty food . Portions are small but very well cooked and presented. Service exceptionally friendly and efficient. A lovely little escape from the madness of the medina.

Our first trip to Essaouria and we glad we came here. Had a great evening, get to know the owner he's a lovely man! Great pasta (had the gnocci) and the apps were on point. Had a bottle of Montepulciano, went perfect with dinner.

Perfect if you fancy a change from the normal cuisines available in Morroco, delicious Italian food with a seafood influence. A tad pricey but the setting and food quality makes it feel a fair price.

This is off-the-beaten path but worth a visit. After a solid week of Moroccan food, it was nice to have a different menu to choose from that included Italian dishes but definitely influenced by Moroccan ingredients and culinary approaches. The atmosphere was quite comfortable and...More

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.
