LOLO Restaurant Offers A Taste Of Italy In The Heart Of Cap-Haitien, Haiti

By Stephanie Ogbogu


So, you’ve packed your bags and decided to make Haiti your next travel destination. You’ve toured the Caribbean country, taking in the sights, history, and of course the beaches. Now you’re hungry and have a taste for Italian food with an authentic flare. Worry not, LOLO Restaurant in Cap-Haitien has you covered.

Restaurant owner Lorraine Silvera, or LoLo for short, has hospitality in her blood. Growing up in Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince, her family owned a hotel. Her genuine love for her country and her passion for showcasing Haiti in a positive light led her to get into the restaurant business.

Lolo was inspired to open an Italian restaurant after realizing that there were little to no offerings for Italian food in Haiti. And because Haiti is known for having some of the best food in the Caribbean, Lolo knew that she had to put her best foot forward.

LOLO Restaurant prides itself on fresh pasta made with locally sourced Haitian eggs. Besides the usual chicken and fish dishes you find in the Caribbean, their menu offers a selection of homemade fettuccini, ravioli & gnocchi, sauces, bbq meats, and pizzas.
