“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Have eaten here twice in the last week as it was a surprise to find such a great, modern Italian in Marrakech!

Firstly, I don't understand why some previous reviews claim it's difficult to find - we have a long history of getting lost and we had no problems (it's on Rue Moulay Ali at crossroads with Rue Tariq Ben Ziad).

The quality of the food was excellent. Particular highlights included the squid-ink linguine, fresh seafood spaghetti and a perfect Steak served with peppercorn sauce and mash. Also, the selection of crème brulees (rosemary, vanilla and cinnamon) and the Torta al Limone with meringue should not be missed. The only disappointing dish we ordered was the Pizzette with mozzarella starter and the only complaint there was the base was too thick - but this was long forgotten once the mains arrived!

Service was attentive and efficient with very friendly waiters and Management.

Despite visiting on a Monday and Wednesday evening in December, there were enough other diners for a little atmosphere.

A seriously good place to eat!

“Never managed to find it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Despite asking the locals and phoning the restaurant which is just a mobile number never managed to find it. Went by taxi to ensure we found the place but he could not locate it either. Spoke to two locals who had never heard of it as well as two English people who live in the area but to no avail. We had booked a table, we phoned the restaurant for directions several times. It the phone was not answered. English couple recommended another italian restaurant that all the locals eat in. We went here and had a lovely meal. See our other reviews. Ultimo need to do something about their advertising and maps which are poorly defined.

“Excellent, brilliant manager, food incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and went twice during our holiday. It is frequented mainly by locals/ expats living in Marrakech, which is always a good sign. Always packed, didn't book either night but the Manager (Italian, sorry didn't get his name) but absolutely brilliant. Runs the show like it is his own business. Didn't turn anyone away, ushered us to the bar for a drink while he found us a table. Very welcoming and managing a clearly, very busy restaurant. Food was wonderful & ambience fantastic.

“The quality of food not as good as we were expecting.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

In the modern part of Marrakech, quite far from places of interest, in a modern building. You need a taxi to go there and it was not so easy to find the place.
The service is good, but the quality of food not as good as we were expecting.
