I have visited this restaurant earlier this week-very disappointing for either italian standards or even Indian. Such establishments which are run by expats in India, Bali or any other exotic locations are featured by an owner being present in the restaurant at all times. While I was having my dinner, the lady owner didn't bother to walk from table to... More

Came here after reading great reviews. The pizza was okay, nothing great. The pasta was really disappointing. It tasted like penne tossed in Indian style tomato onion curry base. Having lived for a few months in Italy, that's definitely not how it tasted back then. On mentioning the same, the manager repeated the ingredients to us! A nice sorry for... More

Love this place so so much. Great food. My favourite pizza in this country. Maybe I'm a little partial because it's also at my favourite beach but it's so authentic and I really can't wait to go back there again. Lovely drinks and dessert too. Must visit :)

The best authentic, value for money, Italian restaurant I've been to. Owners are from Northern Italy and as far as the cuisine goes, stay faithful to their roots. They run a tight ship also. The pasta dishes were the main attraction for me, although the pizzas which start from $5 are a snip, depending on where in the world you... More

Lucky enough to get a table without booking on a Saturday evening. Service a bit slow but worth waiting for. Lovely authentic pizza which the staff will happily box to take away. Only down side, I left with fresh mozzie bites.

Imported cheeses and parma ham makes for a delicious thin crust pizza. Felt like I was back home in Canada eating pizza in little Italy. Must try if you love pizza. Good service. Nice atmosphere ambient music.

First night in Palolem last night and went to Magic Italy because of recommendation in Lonely Planet. Excellent friendly waiters, nice, clean setting and one of the nicest pizza's I have ever had (Siciliana with extra tuna). Would definitely visit again as the other food sounded and looked amazing too. Very authentic and better than most I had in Italy... More

I am a huge fan of authentic Italian food and would go to any length to try places that come close to it. Magic Italy was one such place which I first discovered in August, 2013 and then came back this year to gorge again.Try their four cheese pizza and home made pasta. Even the tit bits they serve complimentary... More
