Italian restaurants in Ouagadougou
- Sort by:
If you ask expats for their favourite Ouaga restaurant, chances are a good number will choose the Italian Le Verdoyant. It's best known for its pasta (the lasagne here is the best you'll find in Africa) and wood-fired pizzas, but the outdoor tables are pleasant, the service good and the menu (mostly fish and meat) varied enough to cater to most tastes.
Most travellers who come to Ouaga on a budget end up here at some point. It's a low-key place with a varied menu (including spaghetti bolognese and some Lebanese dishes) and the only downside - vaguely disconcerting street smells at the outdoor tables if the wind's blowing the wrong way - could easily apply to any outdoor place in town. It's not a brilliant place but it's one of a kind in Ouaga.
