Went here on our last night in essaouira based on reviews on tripadvisor, we were not disappointed. We had fresh Italian food and had a good chat the manager about the history of the place. No complaints, good value and excellent food.

Not so expensive, little, pretty good italian restaurant managed by a couple of nice people. Great cooking, great local wines, great attitude of the manager. If you live in Essaouira you have to test.

Delicious real Italian cuisine. The stuffed squid was heaven, portion size could be a bit bigger. Service was great. When passing by a few days later, we took out some pizzas, again good quality, excellent service.

The owner really looks after you and did a lot for us. The food was ok and the place is quite cold and uninviting. It was winter and we were the only ones there. If you are passing then drop in by all means.

Last night I took a walk down the road with my daughter-in-law and a friend to check out an Italian restaurant a friend told me about. We were greeted by Chak, the owner who asked which languages we spoke. I said Swahili and he started talking Portuguese. What a character! After finally ordering 3-pizzas, he began telling us his life... More
