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. Our beautiful terrace has some of the best sea-views that Playa Blanca has to offer, and together with spectacular sunsets, and a chilled candlelit ambiance, it is simply the perfect place to relax and enjoy your evening.

Best Italian anywhere. Amazing pizzas at very reasonable prices, 4 seasons to die for. Even managed to cater for my very fussy husband and looked after us so well. Fantastic after dinner drinks, try the pearl necklace, yum, yum, yum.

We have been 2 years on the trot to this restaurant, visiting 2-3 times in a week, both times at the end of February. They have welcome you with drizzled bread and olives. Starters are different and a fair size so we often share one! House wine goes down great. Service is friendly. To top it all off there is... More

The pasta dish with garlic prawns was so fresh and delicious! My partner had a pizza and the crust was amazing and also not too filling! This meal was so good we returned a few nights later and both... More

We visited on the first night of our holiday, which was on a Wednesday. The restaurant was very quiet and we sat outside to enjoy the lovely view. I have been here many times before and wanted to show my fellow guests how great it was. We ordered our mains and I said not to bother with starters as the... More
