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.

“Great italian comfort food after Morrocan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This restaurant was a little hard to find so would definitely recommend to get a cab. Food was a relief after we couldn't stomach any more morrocan food.
We were 4 adults and we ordered ravioli limoni to share (there specialty) which was home made ricotta with a light lemon sauce, it was delicious. For our mains tagitelli with prawns in a tomato based sauce, gnocci in a tomato based sauce, veal Milanese, roast meat in a tomato sauce (this dish was exquisite and melted in your mouth). Only downside not licenced yet but on it's way.
We hadn't eaten properly in days and this restaurant hit the mark. I would definitely recommend. Cost for 4 was 770dur which is roughly 77pound so good value.

“Worst italian dinner ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Nice interior, high expectations, good service. THE WORST ITALIAN FOOD EVER! From a chewy carpaccio to some pasta with some pesto stirred in, to a so called beef dish which was actually a disgusting, greasy wiener schnitzel. All with a big price tag. We really where so disappointed as the setting was very nice

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We had been recommended to eat here by the owner of our Riad and we went on a quiet Sunday evening. The service was impeccable and friendly. The restaurant was not hard to find and was well signposted. The food was cooked to perfection - both my husband and I commented that we had paid far more for Italian food half as good, in Milan. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Real Italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were dying for a change from Moroccan or junk food, we stumbled across this Raid. As a typical restaurant in MArakech you wouldn't have even known it was there or how beautiful it was.
We arrived, had a started and a main each- service and food was amazing and reasonably price considering. Really good quality and what we are used to in England!

On our last night we just wanted to go one last time ( we went twice and went one day it was closed) we arrived half an hour early and was just hanging around as we desperately wanted to go there. The chef saw us and the owner let us in earlier whilst they were setting up!

We loved this and recommend to anyone!

“Stumbled across tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Il Limone

We stumbled upon Il Limone whilst waking back from an Hamman and massage, so to find this quirky restaurant while so relaxed was an even greater joy! The marble floor and tables set illuminated by candles, the small water pool with floating rose petals and the exotic music in the background gave off a wonderful ambience of tranquility away from the madness of the streets. The staff, all young men, were extremely pleasant and ensured we understood what we had ordered from the Italian/French menu by repeating in English. We had a delightful little tomato salad and small slices of omelette before our starter which was half a dozen filo parcels with salad. We followed this with a simple tagine of chicken (with chips bizarrely) and a lamb dish with sweet fruits and local vegetables. Followed by coffee's. Both meals were simple and very well done, slightly salty (but that's a personal taste). Overall a relaxing and wonderfully eclectic mix of old and new at a very reasonable price €40. Definitely worth a visit.
