Great food and service, only issue was we did not discover this restaurant until our second last day of our holiday although we did manage to eat there for the 2 remaining days. Everything was cooked fresh and the owner Fabio was such a nice friendly guy.

Ate here twice during our stay in Playa Blanca . The food was gorgeous and the desserts looked to die for. The staff were so kind and helpful and the food wasn't to pricey.

Eat here 3 times in 2 weeks, every meal was fresh and tasted fantastic. Pizza's are authentic, pasta is fresh and the service was what you would expect in Italy, fun, quick and no nonsense. Great place!!!

Pizza's made and cooked the Italian way. I ordered my food, watched it being made from scratch and enjoyed the end result. Would definitely eat here again

What a fabulous place. From beginning to end everything was fantastic. The pizza was superb, the service just as good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an authentic Italian experience. Next time you're planning to go to Italy, don't bother. Go to lanzarote and eat here three times a day for two weeks. Totally fantastic place!

Definitely not a place to eat for a dressed up dinner. But takeaway pizza or snack and it was excellent, my children loved it and must agree was very tasty. Just not somewhere we would ever eat for a night out. But takeaway very good
