“Not at all a restaurant that I can recommend!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

L’Ultimo Bacio is far from the medina where we were staying, and you need a taxi with the adventure that this means in Marrakesh..To have the meter on, you should make a battle! The furnishings is modern and pleasant, but being the space quite small we were a lot disturbed here as well by the several smokers...The service was a bit of a mess..Definitely nobody understands English in a sufficient way to explain the dishes...Our wine was on the table, but not the water ordered at the same time and that finally arrived with the main courses. The food was far from our expectations: We had mozzarella that had rubber consistency...When I complained about this I was told that it was not the authentic mozzarella despite that was reported as mozzarella in the menu. The main courses were even worse: My fried calamari had a strange taste and after the second trial I stopped to eat them, much probably the oil was reheated too many times and the waiter explained that the calamari were...frozen: Thing once more not reported at all in the menu.

My friend had vitel tonne...a catastrophe! The slices of meat were so thin, dried and without taste that I wonder how an Italian chef can serve such a dish!

Last, but not for importance the prices are dear: Not at all a place that I can recommend!

“One of Marrakech's best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We enjoyed a fine meal at this authentically Italian restaurant in the New City at Marrakech. As previous reviewers have said, most people will have to take a taxi to go there -- make sure you find a taxi driver who knows where it is! We had no trouble finding it as the driver knew of the restaurant and took us right to it! (There is no big outside signage -- look for a floor mat with "Ultimo Bacio" in front of the door.)

The service was attentive, professional and efficient -- like many places in Marrakech the place gets really full during peak season and I can imagine the service staff might have more difficulty coping, so a tip: arrive early, as we did (8 pm) and have a fine meal served at the proper pace.

The food is quite good -- close to authentically Italian flavors. Morocaan use of olive oil is a two-edged sword -- the oil in this place was excellent and full of flavor (dipping the bread in it was wonderful, as was drizzling it on the bresaola), but there is a tendency to have a bit of a heavy hand in some of the dishes (especially the pastas). Desserts were excllent -- the trio of cremes brulees offered some unique flavor comparisons and the molten chocolate cake was decadent enough to make this chocoholic happy for several hours.

Relatively good selection of wines available -of course the Moroccan wines are priced much more favorably and there are some quite respectable ones available, but the winelist also includes European choices.

“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!
