Really good, value for money food

Like many people we walked past this place a few times before venturing inside, the staff are all very welcoming and very friendly but not overwhelming, we ordered a four cheese pizza on thin crust, homemade lasagne and chips. I in all honesty expected a little more in flavour from the lasagne with it being authentically homemade and the pizza... More

Don't let the location put you off, these guys know their pasta, all fresh & it certainly tastes it, sauces superb & really tasty, service excellent, wine selection very good. One of the best Italians we have had for a while, would highly recommend.

Located behind the jungle bar at the papagayo commercial centre. We ate here as we wanted to go to the rock tribute night at the jungle bar. Food was nice and service was good. Worth a visit

We found this gem as it was near to our hotel and we had had enough of the all inclusive experience! The pizzas were freshly prepared then baked in a proper pizza oven, they were delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive and made you feel welcome. It is not on the front, but even minus a view, it was... More

We had booked in at a local all inclusive hotel, but sadly on arrival the restaurant had closed for the night! Luckily we were only a short walk from the Papagayo Centre and decided to eat here...good choice! Reasonably priced food, quick service (hungry travellers!) and happy staff. Food was presented well, partner enjoyed pizza, I had pasta and restaurant... More

Very good for Italian dishes and prices very reasonable. Location not ideal, long walk from Marina Rubicon and also quite a way from Playa Blanca centre but when you get there the welcome is great. Pasta choice is very good.

The Spagetti Bolognese was probably the best we had ever had. For dessert my husband had the Tiramisu , a very generous portion, which... More
