really good but expensive

Enjoyed our visit to Afrodite Little Italy and enjoyed a light lunch. Food was good but we found it a little more expensive that would have been expected (one pizza and two beers cost 19 euros) Other establishments nearby were at least 20% less and just as good - we sampled later in the week.

this restaurant is in a brilliant location. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Situated next to the Marina Rubicon and a Hiperdinoexpress. the food always looks superb but in the end it is disappointing. To compensate however there is often a jazz musician which distracts you from the food a bit!

Great and attentive service even when they are [always] busy. Good quality italian style pizza. Their volcano pizza was great especially with the added chilli oil. Good quality and reasonably priced italian wine which made a nice change. Managed to catch the evening with live jazz saxophone which added to the ambiance.

We have eaten at this restaurant on many occasions during our frequent trips to Playa Blanca. We do not have, nor ever had, any complaints with the food or the service there. On our last visit there my wife ordered chocolate cake as her dessert but asked if she could have ice cream instead of the aerosol cream that is... More

Staff were excellent, the food was very authentic and top notch BUT something went a little awry when it came to waiting for the deserts....too much time went by and we had to enquire. A difficult one this because in the 'modern day' usually there is a time squeeze which is uncomfortable but on this occasion the 'communication' between staff... More

Visited with family whilst on our summer holiday last year. We were all inclusive and having mediocre food at our hotel. We spotted this restaurant on a walk during the day. Booking is a must as it gets very busy. The food was divine!! The steaks were melt in the mouth. Everything was cooked beautifully and good value for money.... More

Most people were eating snacks on the terrace but we wanted lunch inside because it was quite cool. Very pleasant service and enjoyable chicken dishes.

It is a pity this place is so mediocre.Playa Blanca is crying out for a really good Italian restaurant.It plays the Tourist card too much. Needs to focus on the food!!

we had two evening meals here recently plus lunch. It has a really good, buzzing atmosphere, attentive friendly staff, and excellent food- we tried both the slow cooked lamb and the pastas- which were both superb.
