My fiance and I waited for over 7 minutes to be seated and whilst all 3 waiting staff (including the owners) saw us; not one of them smiled, acknowledged us nor said they'd be with us in a few minutes to seat us. In fact, one of them stared at us then went back to walking backwards and forwards across... More

Pizzas were very good and filling, however, I don't think they quite get the authentic Italian flavour. Anyway, I really enjoyed my pizza and I would recommend it to everyone. Inside is a lovely cute place with standard tables but also sitting on the "flood". Our waiter, a guy from Nepal, was lovely, kind and friendly. We had a good... More

Absolutely stunning home made Ravioli in either red sauce, white sauce or pesto. Amazing Lasagna. Thin base, hand tossed, wood fired oven baked pizzas. The best Tiramisu I have ever had. Totally the way it should be. Panacotta, Apple pie, carrot cake; the list goes on. What else can I ask for from an Italian restaurant in Goa? Oh yes.... More

I've been traveling around India for the past few months and have yet to find a single restaurant to serve anything even remotely resembling an actual pizza (the closest I've come prior-to was at a little cafe in Mcleod Ganj, Himachal Pradesh) until this day. Magic Pizza may be the best thing about Palolem besides the beach. The strange New... More

We had an egplant pizza and the magic Italy sampler of lasagna and ravioli (homemade) and delicious. The ambiance is fantastic and staff great. They took real pride in the food and the restaurant. We will definitely go back several times before we go home. You will not be disappointed. It's the real deal Italian.

Magic Italy seems to be one the of few places in the area that has pride in their food and ambiance. The staff was very pleasant and as a result we ate their often. They have many good dishes which are fresh and reliable. It is also a nice break from eating dal and rice all the time. Our favorite... More

Enjoyed a good meal with friends, I had pasta a matriciana which is difficult to do well but they made it very well.. wish I could have eaten more but had a bad stomach (unrelated to Magic Italy).

This small little place has very good ambiance, but serve only Pizza and Pasta's. So if you don't like Italian then this is not a place for you. However if you like Italian then this is highly recommended. they don't have much option in Chicken in Pizza's,just one option, so be ready. the pizzas are very tasty and the base... More
