PIZZERIA DEL LUCCA

Mario concocts succulent pizzas, the best we can find with a paste which only an Italian Signor would know the secret recipe to.
GARGOTE DELICES Dar es salam
Just after the central Jirama before entering Dar es salam, a small and very affordable gargote. Good hearty dishes: zebu side, goat with olives, wild boar stew, Chinese soup, misao. Fast service and well cooked.
HÔTEL ROYAL BEACH Madirokely
On the beach of Madirokely, access before Dar es Saalam is a 4 star hotel. Two restaurants with timeless atmospheres serving local and international dishes and a pizzeria next to the pool. Fresh and natural products.
The restaurant of a real cook who loves his work and adds his philosophy on quality, health, flavors, healthy breeding, so much that one could almost read on his menu that no animals has been mistreated. He created a self-contained farm where the animals flourish with space and are natural fed not their own super organic crops that goes without saying and spirulina rather than antibiotics. The result is a very nice menu of his products worked with passion. Almost everything is “homemade” rillettes, foie gras, terrines, quails of pigeons, ducks, etc… It’s tasty, original, inventive. A delight not to be missed.
Another good restaurant in the « neighbourhood » where the music plays very late into the evening. Another Italian cuisine perfectly suited to fish and meat.
Oysters baked in the oven and seafood spaghetti are perfect for an evening meal.
Surely one of the best restaurants of the island. A fine Italian cuisine that marries and showcases the superb fresh local produce. Spaghetti with sea urchins, a joy!
A Zebu hamburger? Why not!
This is where all the skeptics of hamburgers are converted.
Even if someone else isn’t convinced by the hamburger, there is still a delicious menu of zebu and fish while you enjoy your hamburger and homemade fries.
The Italian Restaurant Mama Téréza composes an appetizing and varied menu. She even dared to create the banana gnocchi. Of course you can also try pizzas, lasagna, risottos, Carpaccio’s, and Nosy Be dishes. Lots of choices!
The gasy gargote. Order a Malagasy daily specialty with rice « a dish or half-dish ». It’s very much appreciated.
Hellville Court. Snacks, bakery and pastries.
Very busy, this is the place to have breakfast in town, with pastries and fresh fruit juice.
Hellville Court. A colonial decor, and a very neat Italian cooking style. Only Lunch.
