We arrived for lunch with 4 people. The restaurant is tiny but charming. Thre of us ordered different pastas - all were generous and delicious. My husband ordered an enormous Pizza which was very good but he could not eat the whole thing. We had a lovely meal with attentive service and look forward to eating here again.

We ate here twice. The food was delicious. The resto is run by Italians. The service was excellent and there was live music on Saturday.

Authentic family-owned Italian restaurant serving tasty dishes at reasonable prices in central Grand Baie. Attentive and cheerful staff, good wine list. Location at the inland side of the sometimes bustling road the only negative thing.

Every once in a blue moon one discovers something truly authentic with more of a provenance than you can ever imagine. It is like an exceptional first hand experience of a glittering super moon up close from the beach. A case in point: the restaurant Botteghita in Grand Baie, Mauritius where Chef Michele has the most incredible pedigree - any... More
