I went to this restaurant convinced by the incredibly beautiful position and the owner of the place to find real Italian food and it turned out to be just a trap for foreigner tourists. I can't say anything about pizzas, i didn't try one and they seemed better than what we had, but the first plates we tried weren't really... More

Kind of disappointing to find an Italian restaurant in Arcos. It was not the only one, but we ended up in this place by mistake because we booked a table to listen to Spanish music. The food was so so, the wine also. For a good Italian wine one needs to pay 30-50 Euro.

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.

Very friendly host. 6-12 euro pizzas big enough to share. cheap beer by the glass. Great indoor or outdoor seating in a great location with good views for people watching.

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.

I had a few good tapas and some (maybe more) wine. Flamenco and dancing music started, friends came at Mamma Tina, and we had this great night of fun, dancing and laughing. A real stuff in the old part of Archos de la Frontera, drop by and see what's happening, in any case, stop, have tapas and a glass of... More

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
