“Difficult to find but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Recommended by friends who came 10 days earlier.......don't try to find it by foot in the dark as Marrakech isn't the best for road signs, but when you do find it, it is worth the effort....make it easy for yourself and go by cab
Down a back street in the Gueliz (newer part of Marrakech) La Trattoria is simply stunning when you walk through from the terrace entrance into the restaurant.
The setting is exquisite,food is delicious and the staff attentive......my wife said her tiramisu was the best she's had.
We tried local wines which were fine accompaniment to the food.
There was a singing guitarist who complimented and enhanced the atmosphere...don't know how much of a fixture he is or whether they alternate entertainment though.
Not cheap...with a cocktail to start and wine you could easliy rack up 550-600 dirams per person(£45-50) but ask me if it was worth it...YES !!!

“so amazing place,but look for Badr”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

we came by chance to this restaurant while searching for italien foods because we wanted some change not only moroccan foods during our trip.
the first impression you get in the bar near to the fire its like staying home even if the restaurant was a bit empty, but it sound very familiar then we enjoyed our conversation with badr the gay who tell us the history of this incredible place and give us choice where to stay
Wonderful Italian food with a charming host ,The service was attentive, professional and efficient with very friendly staff
we liked the foods especially fish and our tiramissu was delecious
i know that we will come back next trip for sure
