If I was to rate solely on their pizzas I would give a 5 rating as they were delicious, authentic Italian pizzas with fresh ingredients and the side salad we ordered was fresh and beautifully presented. It was only the dessert we chose and the espresso coffee that knocked off a few points for us but never the less we... More

We decided to give this place a try after reading the reviews on TA. We had a good meal and service was friendly and fast. My pizza was a bit soggy, that's why the 4 stars but my husband's was excellent. The tiramisu was great! We will visit again can recommend it.

This restaurant is easily overlooked as it is a few minutes out of town towards Marina Rubicon, however, it is worth the effort to seek out. Simply walk out of town along the sea front walk towards the Marina and the next block of bars etc you come to contains this restaurant. We have been a couple of times before... More

This is a must eat at restaurant while You are in Playa Blanca. It is consistently good and a great friendly place. Franco,s pitzas take some beating cooked in his olive wood oven. The pasta dishes are delicious. The steaks are great. Everything is worth trying See you there

This restaurant was a great find. The service is fantastic and the pizzas are some of the best we have ever eaten. The staff were fantastic with our children. The decor is lovely too.

The restaurant is in the Papagayo Commercial Centre and is not on the usual run of restaurants and can easily be missed, however, it was recommended to me by a friend last year and we returned three times this year. The house wine is 12.50€'s and is very drinkable, the pizzas are the best I have tasted but I tried... More
