Description: Quelques marches à grimper et vous voici totalement dépaysé. La vue des antipasti, fromages et vins d’Italie ouvrent l’appétit. Silvestro, en chef italien qui se respecte, veille jalousement à l’authenticité de sa cuisine. Les pâtes sont faites maison, les pizzas croustillantes, cuites au feu de bois et les produits tels fromages, prosciutto, huile d’olive et café importés. Cela donne une carte riche et variée à savourer dans l’atmosphère chaleureuse d’une salle toujours pleine d’une clientèle fidèle

After Tagine for the umpteenth time, I needed a respite from Moroccan food, so we asked our Riad if there was an Indian restaurant in the medina of Essaouira, he said no, but suggested the one and only Italian restaurant in the city. We were dubious at first, but after he told us it was owned and operated by an... More

we have been traveling for five weeks now, and this evening enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant. I recommend the lasagna.

Moroccan food does become a bit challenging at times. The sameness of some of it when there are so many spices to be had. It was refreshing to try something different even if we were a bit nervous. The food at this restaurant makes it worth a visit. We had spaghetti marinara and it was the best we have ever... More

Ashamed to say once we found Silvetro's we returned a number of times, instead of exploring other restaurants. However, it was for a good reason: super service; super food and great wine. The pizzas are super, the black rice (with prawns and apple) amazing and the wine, while limited is very good.

Great wine, great food, lots of choice on the menu. Went back here an embarrassing number of times during my holiday, could not recommend a better restaurant in this pretty town.

A lot of European tourists which travel to Morocco are, after a couple of days, sick of the moroccan food. They really miss their local food. It's than time to visit Silvestro and his delicious pastas, pizza's and "escalope milanaise"... By the way , if you are a gourmand and want to est enough, choose this "escalope milanaise". Finally, Silvestro... More

Such a lovely unexpected break from all the Moroccan food! This little family-run restaurant in Essaouira served great pizza, pasta and seafood. Service was attentive and the food just right! We had to go back a couple of nights..... Thank you !

We just had a trip within a trip. After walking the steep stairs up, we entered Italy and had the most amazing meal. Being from San Francisco, I have to say this is some of the best Italian food we've eaten. The prosciutto was hair thin and so delicious, the spaghetti frutti di mare, was fresh and full of delicious... More

Had lunch here yesterday with both my son and I having salmon tagliatelle. the food turned up promptly, was well presented and plentiful, perhaps even too plentiful in that the serving was huge ! Décor / ambience was pleasant as were the staff. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that I personally felt the menu could have... More
