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.

Ate their twicse. My wife had Tagliatelle Salmone both times, which she thought was delicious. I had 4 Staggione pizza and lasagne, the lasagne was especially good. Very convenient for anyone staying up that end of town.

Dined here based on Tripadvisor reviews. We had starters of goats cheese and roast beetroot. The beetroot was fantastic. I had the pizza with pesto. A bit disappointed as the pizza was in small pieces and the pesto separate. Mains were Roast pepper Pizza, this was Perfect. Crispy crust with "well done " bits. Lovely. I had wood fired steak....

We found this restaurant via TripAdvisor. What a find! We ate here four times in one week. The food is homemade and excellent. Try the tagliatelle bolognase it really is superb. The wines are very good quality and the desserts are generous and artistically presented. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is efficient and friendly. Don't be put off... More

Definately some of the best Italian food I've had. Salads were so fresh and tasty and main dishes freshly cooked in the wood fired oven. A welcome haven... More

We ate here three times during our 7 night stay. The pizzas are really good from the wood fired oven. Try the 4 cheese. Lasagne very good too. Good portions, very reasonable price. Will go again when in Playa Blanca.
