Description: Quelques marches à grimper et vous voici totalement dépaysé. La vue des antipasti, fromages et vins d’Italie ouvrent l’appétit. Silvestro, en chef italien qui se respecte, veille jalousement à l’authenticité de sa cuisine. Les pâtes sont faites maison, les pizzas croustillantes, cuites au feu de bois et les produits tels fromages, prosciutto, huile d’olive et café importés. Cela donne une carte riche et variée à savourer dans l’atmosphère chaleureuse d’une salle toujours pleine d’une clientèle fidèle

Loved the elder gent who meticulously patted out and dressed our pizza. An Italian grandfather making pizza in Morocco!!

When you can't face another Tagine it may be time for an authentic Italian & Silvestro is that place. Great pasta, pizza, an outstanding Osso Bucco, and great Italian wines. Grazie, Pino.

Went here really just for a change from the Moroccan staples, but had a lovely surprise. The quality of the food was really good. I could really write this review in 3 words - 'amazing seafood spaghetti'. Go here, eat that.

At the end of our stay in Essaouira, we couldn't face another tagine, so our riad host recommended Silvestro and we had a lovely meal. It's an interesting place with riotous wallpaper and opera playing in the background which all makes for a bit of a change from the traditional Moroccan styling and food. We had a decent pizza and an excellent seafood pasta dish. Nothing momentous, but a nice enough meal.

It is authentic Italian cooking, service and atmosphere. If you want instant food then we suggest that you go elsewhere. Families and babies are welcome, which again is pure Italy.
The food is cooked from 'scratch' and the owner and staff who we have come to know extremely well over the past 5 years, are only too willing to show you how the basic ingredients such as Pasta, is made, and how the meals are prepared.
Yes, you may have to wait a short while, but this is a 'little Italy' in Esseauira. The decor, the furniture, the smells, the sounds......all pure Italian.
This year we ate there 3 times and were never disappointed with the quality and quantity of the food, or the service. Give it a try, but remember that this guy is an Italian who enjoys providing Italian food and an Italian experience......so be patient, sit back, enjoy a glass of wine, and relax.
