Best pasta dish I have had on the island

I loved this restaurant but have several friends who have had bad experiences with it. The pasta dish with seafood was superb. The biggest downside is that the tables are packed together so those at the next tables can listen in to whatever you are saying which doesn;t make for a great environment... read more

If you like tables crammed together and like listening to others conversation then this is the place for you. This restaurant looks the part but just doesn't deliver,and as for the arrogant waiter, we complained to the Head Waiter about his behaviour . Rude, arrogant and poor service, together with bland only just hot food. There are many other excellent... More

There seem to be multiple entries for Grand Italia, but this looks like the main one, so I will post my review again: We ate here 3 out of 5 nights in Gran Canaria, if that says anything. We originally chose it when walking down the strip perusing menus of all the restaurants and Grand Italia was the only one... More

Very well situated restaurant. We are two times at Gran Italia. First time : pizza, they were good. Second time, we tasted the special pasta : you can avoid it. The service is ok.

I have visited this restaurant before and always make sure I head back when I am in the area. Fantastic Italian food (not just your run of the mill chain Italian!) and the service is always just right. More formal than all of the restaurants in Playa del Ingles, and hits just the perfect spot. No matter what you choose... More

The restaurant looks terrific…..staff speaks Italia (most of them) and the pizza seems OK. As an Italy lover, I like spaghetti a la vongole a lot, it's the ultimate test if you want to check the quality of the restaurant (my opinion)….unfortunately, the spaghetti was not good at all. Not al dente, no taste, few vongole (one very bad, I... More

A fantastic restaurant which we have visited several times over the last few years when visiting Gran Canaria. This time we had to queue for a few minutes to get a table but once seated it didn't disappoint. We will definitely return again on our next visit and thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

The food here was very good. The tables are very close together however, which does detract from an otherwise, excellent experience. Service and decor was also of a good standard. The staff entertained my 2 year old grandson by giving him small flags from various countries which he loved which allowed us to enjoy our meal. I would recommend a... More
