After one night in Marrakech, we were sick of the typical Moroccan meal so ate Italian almost for the rest of our trip in Morocco. Our first choice, Pepe Nero was closed on Monday's so we settled for I Limoni. We took a cab from the Mellah, we could have walked but it would probably take about 30 minutes.
The atmosphere was nice, we sat in the courtyard surrounded by lemon trees and there was a tranquil fountain in the middle. To start we had the grilled vegetables and omelet/quiche- finally some fresh vegetables that I had been craving! We shared the lemon chicken- I would skip this next time- chicken was kind of slimy and the lemon sauce was a bit strange. We also had the duck ragu with tagliatelle which was just pasta with meat sauce. Overall, I would say the meal was ok, it wasn't amazing and I am not sure I would want to eat it again. It was just a nice break from Moroccan food.
The waiter was overly annoying asking us for our order. It took us awhile to translate the French menu on our iTranslate app (thank goodness they had wi-fi!) The owners didn't pay any attention to us at all, rather I felt like they were pushing our server to be quicker with taking our order. The owners seemed more interested in the Italian party that was sitting next to us.
I would recommend I Limoni just to get away from Moroccan food, to have something fresh and of average quality to eat that you know is probably safe, but not to have something that is overly enjoyable.
