Great Place to dine

Magic Italy was one of the better places in the surrounding. After walking around a bit, we could not help but step in and try the king fish. The boy SOLD us the fish for Rs. 700, it was funny because some fishes in the menu do not have a fixed price. But it was worth the try as the... read more

Best Italian food in South Goa. Only place where the chef comes to discuss how you want your meal cooked at the table.

i never go to Palolem without having a meal here. The food is fresh and incredibly authentic - seems the owners bring down a lot of the produce and condiments. And the staff is very knowledgeable, which makes a big difference. Enjoy the pizzas and book the tiramisu when you enter.

Amazing pizza/pasta! Better than some places I've actually eaten in in Italy! Ok it was end of season and as they import all their food from Italy, some supplies (dried meats and pesto) were in short supply, but it didn't matter. The pasta was al dente and well flavored and the pizzas huge and authentic. A little higher priced that... More

This place is one of the best eateries around south Goa.. We were welcomed with a warm smile and the place is nice n cozy feeling inside... The service was a little slow even though only half the hotel was filled, but once the food was served on the table it was mesmerizing.. The Pizzas and Pastas are simply delicious...... More

I have two parts to this 1. The dessert - Yummy!!! Deserves 5 stars! We had the Torta Della Nonna and it was yummy and stunning to look. 2. The pizza - was just ok, too salty and greasy. And I dislike dogs waiting at my table :( so, that is a big turn off for me.

We chose Magic Italy because friends of ours had read it was the 'best pizza in Goa' and was keen to try it. The atmosphere was pleasant but service very slow - there appeared to be only one poor guy doing all the work! The pizza was nice enough but overpriced. I'll stick to Indian next time.

We visited this restaurant in February and have to say were disgusted with the behaviour of some of the staff there. We were sat at a table by the bar and witnessed a barman and also a waiter helping them selves to alcoholic drinks from behind the bar and downing them quickly then laughing with a group of what I...
