We ate here in early May 2015 and absolutely loved it. We had the ensalada mixta, which was a delicious blend of lettuce, sweet pepper, mushrooms, tomato, mozzarella, eggplant, and more... It was delicious and the tomatoes were some of the best tomatoes I've ever had, the serving was large too. We ordered the pizza especial to split and it... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here based on the good TA reviews and it did not disappoint. The pizzas were so obviously really fresh (pineapple looks so much better than on the pizza you get in the UK) and wood baked. Definitely more Italian than american which is always a good thing! The menu was Spanish but the waiters... More

We had read good reviews of the restaurant and we enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere is lovely, with a very nice outdoor patio. The service was attentive and helpful. The selection of pizzas was extensive and all of the food was very fresh, high quality and very tasty. Our son had pasta which he enjoyed very much. The rest of... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant was amazing, the waiter was fantastic and the pizza was to die for! The crust was thin but they didn't hold off on toppings. They had a salad with a mango garlic dressing, that I could have eaten all day long. It was a nice quiet oasis as well, with the vines around the patio,... More

We went to this italian restaurant looking for traditionnal italian cooking. the menu has a fair variety of pizzas and pasta. I took the pepperoni pizza and it was excellent, thin crust and tasty. My friends tookk the pasta with some white sauce (alfredo or carbonera...not sure) and they did not like it. The portions were generous, maybe other folks... More

The wood fired thin crust pizza was excellent. One of the best I've had! The caprese salad was great, with lots of basil on top of mozzarella and tomatoes. Our server was very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is comfortable (open-air with authentic Italian feel). Highly recommend!

My wife and I were staying in La Fortuna for a few nights and saw this place had decent reviews. I'd definitely recommend it as well. The service was excellent and the food was great. We had the Organic Salad, Caprese and Gnocchi. All were delicious. This spot is maybe a touch on the pricier side, but it was well... More

Pizza and pasta worthy of any Italian restaurant. Thin crust pizza was particularly good as was the mediteranian salad.
