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.
Reviewed 4 April 2018

I wish I hadn't had the gnocchi, not because it wasn't delicious, but because it was so filling and I really wanted to try other things I saw being brought out of the kitchen. It's a little pricier than the other Italian's in Essaouira; but you definitely get what you pay for. Wish I'd discovered it earlier in the holiday so I could have had a repeat trip.

Very good Italian food, from starters to desserts. Pizza is also very good. We tried the risotto and was really perfect. Good choice of wine and spirits. Strongly recommended.

Friendly and professional service, delicious food, good wine and live music (not overpowering - added to relaxing atmosphere). We ate here for 3 nights, between us enjoying the caprese, bruschetta, lemon & ricotta ravioli, sea bass ravioli, sea bream, aubergine parmigiana, tiramisu, chocolate mousse & almond parfait. All were tasty and well prepared, with no disappointments. Thanks to the team who made us welcome and fed us well. John & Ann

A long way out of the Medina you will find a rural Italian. We found from the get go the service was unprofessional to say the least. Upon anger in the door was locked behind us, the waiter was demanding and the decorations were irrelevant. The most insulting thing was when the waiter counted the bill in front of us and then walked to the door to hand us the change. However the chef did provide reasonable food.
