Extensive menu with some interesting extras

This is one of the varied and good restaurants on the Faro de Maspalomas shopping mall. The menu is extensive with some interesting extras to the usual Italian fare- I had wild boar that was extremely good.

This restaurant experience was by far the best I have had on the Island, in fact, it was probably one of the best I've had anywhere! I can't recommend it highly enough. The staff were polite, ever-attentive and friendly. The food was to die for, and that's an understatement. I'm adding pictures of our meals so you can see for... More

We have had several meals at this restaurant, food has always been good but my advice is to go when it's somewhat quieter as when it's full you may have to sit at a table adjacent to the footpath where pedestrians walk through the middle of the restaurant and there is no privacy to eat your meal as you constantly...

Ok..I always like to think I write an accurate and fair review. We had read the good reviews about this restaurant so I was looking forward to eating there. It is a very busy restaurant, very popular and as a result they have crammed in a lot of tables and there's not much distance between you and the other diners.... More

Perfect place after a day in the sun. We left from playa and went over to Maspalomas along the beach. Really thirsty and starving. This is the best place to be. Good food. Cold red vine. Great service. Smiling people. Have visit this place a lots of times. Never disappointed.

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
