Description: In the medina of marrakech, in the chaos of tangled alleys, suddenly, over a carved wooden door, a world unexpected. The patio shaded by lemon trees, a music descends from the sunny terraces and the scent of the best italian cuisine. The Restaurant & Cafe I Limoni offer a relaxing corner in a vintage flavor with a touch of modern design. You can listen to selections of the best music of the past and present while enjoying the traditional tuscan dishes of fish and meat, or just a club sandwich of crispy fries. We are open from 11.30 am to 15.30 and 18.30 to re-open for drinks with dinner and to continue until after midnight with music and cocktails.

“When you are tired of tagines.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

An interesting menu served quickly in an attractive courtyard setting makes for a very pleasant change from Moroccan fare. Mostly Italian, the menu is varied and both my friend and I enjoyed our meals very much. Prices are reasonable and the waiting staff attentive but not overly so. The decor is ecclectic and pleasing to relax in with four shady orange trees.. The owner came over to check everything was fine. A fine addition to the Marrakech restaurant scene. No alcohol but lovely fruit panaches.

“Best place in Marrakech?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

This was top quality stuff. A lot of places say they cook Italian food in Marrakech but I doubt anywhere does it like here.

Fresh foccacia, hand made ravioli and gnocchi and carefully made delicious dishes all round. The antipasti was brilliant, and the dug ragu with tagliatelle was as good as you'll find anywhere in or outside of Italy. Service was friendly and attentive and the courtyard is picture perfect but with a bubbly atmosphere. Quiet, pretty and peaceful, right in the thick of the Northern part of the Medina. Prices were very reasonable given the standard of cooking - 200dh per person for shared starter and a main with non alcoholic drinks and tip.

Can't recommend enough - worth spending some time looking for, the only sign giving directions is on the wall of one of the main streets in the area. Good luck...

“Quirky with great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Well worth trying to find, this is a great little place. The decor and the food were quirky (the obligatory bread came in a cute paper bag rather than the usual dull basket) and the chips were hand made crisps. Quality was great too and a reasonable choice for my veggie friend... especially compared to other Moroccan restaurants. Like another reviewer, we stumbled upon this whilst trying to find our way back to our Riad from the Souks. It had a lovely colourful doorway, which is what attracted us to it.
Highly recommended anyway!

“A gem in the old city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This one will surprise you. We would have never guessed that this fine restaurant was hiding in this neighborhood. Behind the doors is a beautiful restaurant, set in a wonderful courtyard, with well prepared food. A nice break from the tourist fare found too often in other places around the city.

“Welcoming and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

A spotless and attractive restaurant, obviously geared towards tourists and very welcoming to children. We ate Fruits de Mer Fritto Misto (125 dirham) and Beef couscous (90 dirham), both delicious and good value for the quality, followed by great coffee. Service is friendly and efficient - we really liked this place.
