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

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 mid-range place with a very tired decor. The table clothes, menu's, napkins, upholstery etc all need updating. The service was fine, the atmosphere was pretty good as it gets busy and the food - alright. Nothing special.

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 huge plate of carpaccio and a delicious bowl of sardine balls. Each one was easily enough for two.

We both had pasta mains and they were HUGE! Very tasty spaghetti & ragu and great penne arabiatta with the right amount of chilli.

Either come hungry or share. It's fantastic!

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 it was good and he had Hoegaarden as well!
