Safe and just fine

Good service, the food came quickly and was hot, the portions good. We had pasta bolognaise, pasta with a cream sauce and (very little) ham (so-called carbonara) and with a blue cheese sauce. It would have tasted better with some pepper, chili etc. as it was a bit bland, but it was just fine and... read more

We went here as it had good reviews on TA and fancied pasta and we were not disappointed. We did not find it busy, the place is small and cosy but very clean and modern. I had the Diavolo pasta with spicy salami, it was delicious and I did not find the portion small. Excellent Tiramisu for dessert which changes... More

Very good salad of tomatoes and goats cheese followed by a nice bowl of tomato and olive pasta. I would have scored it a 5 but I asked for tuna in my pasta and they forgot to put it in.

Pasta Baladin is a popular place to eat, so I would get there early, not unless you don't mind waiting (which is not normally long). They actually do takeaway also, which was nice as you could walk down to the beach to eat. Food was tasty and at such an affordable price. I would definitely recommend this as one of... More

Simple but yummy pasta dishes in a small funky restaurant. Was pretty quite when we visited but would imagine it would be great when super busy too!

Nice atmosphere, good pasta, competitive prices. And the portion was of good size. So the basics are covered. No surprises and the price was also competitive. Heartily recommended.

I'm always a little disappointed if I try something and it isn't better than I could make at home. The pasta bolognese was just average. The service was good, but i felt that the flavours needed a little boost.

My wife and I arrived with our baby daughter from Morocco into Essaouria a little later than we expected and were pleased to find a restaurant offering a takeaway service. We typically aim to eat local food whilst traveling around, but it is sometimes nice to eat something more familiar... like Italian pasta! To be honest, I was a little... More

This is a good choice if you're looking for something beside tagines and couscous, and was quite good value. The pasta was simple but nice and was just what we were after, however the service was awful. We were the first people to arrive at about 7pm and we had to ask a number of times for a menu and...

This was a nice place to come after some serious over-indulgence in hard-core Moroccan food. The pasta here is simple, if somewhat overcooked (but maybe that's my problem - my husband didn't notice or care). It's pretty fast food - not the kind of place you'll stay for long. But if you weren't planing on making an evening of it,... More
