I go back to Silvestro every time I am in Essaouira. The carbonara is a favourite but I've also sampled the cannelloni and the gnocchi, both of which are delicious. Portions are ample and the wine is excellent, and you will leave stuffed for the...More

Pizza with seafood was the best I have ever had so give it a try if you love seafood, you won't be sorry. They spoke enough English and it wasn't very expensive.

We visited for a quick lunch before heading back to Marrakech for our flight home. We shared a very good vegetable pizza and a delicious tiramisu. It was lovely and sunny sitting on the top terrace and we would happily return.

I'm not a fan of endless tagine's (or Moroccan notions of service, which veers between obsequious and absent), so went to a few Italian's in Essaouira (reviewed elsewhere). Silvestro's was alright. The food portions are absolutely massive - the wine portions, pretty meagre. It's a...More

We nipped in for early tea at about 6:45pm. Already some tables and it got busy quickly. We made the 'mistake' of ordering starter and main meals. As we had olives and delicious bread whilst waiting we realised our error when the starters arrived. A...More

We tried this restaurant after reading the reviews, service was quite slow but the pizza was good with a very thin crispy base. I had the piquant sausage topping but I have to say it was a bit of a strange taste. All round though...More

It was our 7 yr old daughters birthday and she requested pizza. We'd already had a fair amount of love tagines so Italian was a welcome change. In the old medina and easy enough to come across when exploring the souks. We tried four different...More

Oh My God. The pizza in this little upstairs restaurant was literally to die for, despite the 25 minute wait the staff are friendly and the aunthentic Italian wine are amazing too. Must come and try it out, absolutely incredible.

We had four pizzas and honestly this pizza is the real deal. After being in Morocco for three weeks it’s a welcome break from the traditional tanger food. Fantastic service and win and food incredible

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
