A new venture from the same team that ran one of London's iconic Italian restaurants.Boasting Lanzarote's only wood-fired oven you can enjoy a variety of home-made Artisan breads, Pizzas, as well as wood-roasted meats and vegetables. We also make our own fresh pasta daily, and have a wide selection of home-made desserts.

Phenomenal!

We loved it! Having been to Italy for the last 3 years. We had high expectations for an Italian by the sea. We weren't disappointed. Without overstating how good it is, I'd say it's in the top 10% of basic Italian fare as per Italian standards. . The pizzas were great, the starters we ordered were... read more

We were looked after so well when visited this restaurant. I had pre-booked from the UK as it was a special occasion. They made a lovely birthday cake added sparklers & candles but also decorated the area we sat in with balloons & banners. The food was good, cocktails nice too. Good views of the bay.

Ate here once during our recent Easter break. Couldn't complain about the quality of food. Only visited on the back of the TA reviews and given more time in the resort would've liked to return. Definitely one to return to next year.

We dined here three times over a 2 week period and the food was always to a very high standard. The staff were charming and attentive. Beautiful views to the sea. Would go back here in a heart beat.

Best Italian by a mile, great staff that somehow manage to make it both family and couple friendly. Pizzas from the wood oven are excellent with a great choice of fillings and great views over the playa dorado beach. The shopping centre looks a bit tired but don't let that put you off this gem!

We've visited this restaurant three times now over a couple of visits to Lanzarote and found the food amazing and the service very friendly. It has a lovely terrace area which is quite enclosed so not too chilly and the tables are not too close together at all. The pizzas are fabulous with the thinnest and lightest of home made... More
