Nice ambiance and great location but this isn't real Italian and everything is drenched in thick sauces. I may be missing something because the locals think this is a special occasion restaurant, but I wouldn't bother unless you're tired of Typical Spanish cuisine and want to feel like you're back home.

The pizza is good & menu has quite reasonable prices, the young waiter was a bit slow, he forgot to bring our drinks and ignored our table...for sure they can improve their service. On the other hand owner was friendly and food was served quite fast.

Lovely little trattoria and although a bit off the beaten track, they served deliciously authentic Italian fare with stunningly authentic flair. Very friendly staff and excellent value - molto piacere!

Just had the pleasure of eating in this little gem of a restaurant. There is a bust of Mama Tina on the bar and her youngest son(she had 13 children although only 11 survived) made us feel so welcome. The service was excellent and the food excellent. My husband had the provolone to start which was divine.. We were there... More

Easy walk from Casa. Absolutely delicious dinner. We ate outside - at the side of the road - what fun! Love to go back.

One night in Arcos, we were very hungry and roaming and decided on Mamma Tina's. The food was terrific and the service attentive. Definitely go!
