Da Luigi is a cosily small restaurant in rabat. the tables outdoors and the few indoors overlook an abundance of fields, trees and greenery which add magic to meals enjoyed there. Louis, the chef-patron, serves flavourful food and is assisted by several members of his clan, giving the word family-run true significance. The restaurant is on two storeys with well laid out tables and comfortable seating. The décor essentially consists of some oversized mirrors which give a feeling of added space with an eclectic twist.
The food at Da Luigi is an absolute joy and prepared with passion. Ingredients are all meticulously sourced and used to good advantage in the dishes. The Fettuccine Luigi is a surprising concoction of tastes. the pasta texture is just as pasta has to be and the sauce with duck, figs, onions, cherry tomatoes, and a slight hint of cream make this dish quite outstanding. The warm camembert cheese and the rabbit liver are also de nite winners. For da Luigi’s pièce de résistance, the Angus beef rib is by far the victor. Succulent, sizzling and just brown enough on the outside, yet tenderly pink on the inside. You cut into the meat, and it oozes taste. The local rabbit is another dish worth indulging in. Finish off the meal with the Da Luigi tiramisù, a light but tasty ending to a meal which proves that small can be wonderful.
