popular Italian in the government district. Packed the day I was there for a quick lunch. Prompt and reliable. Would be a 3.5 if TA allowed halves.

I went here for lunch and the service was okay, not as quick as in other places in Rabat. Sadly, my first and second choice on the menu were not available. The food I eventually ordered was okay, but not super special.

The chef is italian from Rome. The pasta is really delicious. And sometimes they have some good italian wine. Beautiful garden and one of the rare places in rabat that always has people.

Who wants to eat italian food, shouldn't have to go to this restaurant. The pizza was like a cake and without any spices. "Pesto"was just olive oil with basil flavour. Spaghetti Bolognese without any taste and without any spices. The minced meat was white and...More
