Outside this restaurant looks like any other bar but inside it looks quite classy. This is definitely an upmarket eatery in so far as the waiters are exceptionally professional. The chef is a chef. The sauces are made from scratch not out of a packet, the norm for most eating places. They also have a pizza chef who makes the... More

We were walking past this restaurant and it said best Italian in pdc so we thought we'd try it for the evening. When we arrived it was really good first impression. But then the waiters started to forget to do things for us. Couples that had come in 25 minutes after us had their food before us. Then when it... More

After reading the good and bad reviews I was intrigued to see what this place had to offer. First of all the bad reviews regarding service I must say they must have been in a different restaurant to the one I attended as the staff were nothing but friendly and attentive. Secondly the food was superb and great value for... More

First of all let me thank you so much for posting such a superb review, like you I am somewhat intrigued as to why just recently I have received 3 or 4 bad reviews, when the previous 46 reviews were all excellent or very good, were the reviews posted by a competitor, or a friend of a competitor, seems strange...

Thank you very much for your great review, and yes you are correct I am very passionate about my restaurant, and have been aspiring to be in the top ten of Puerto del Carmen, from the first day I opened three and a half years ago.

We tried this place before a couple of years back and weren't bowled over but we decided to give it another shot due to the great reviews. However unfortunately we were left disappointed after paying for the most expensive meal of our holiday. Service while prompt came without a smile even when we attempted to joke and laugh with waiter... More

For some reason, and I can only put it down to the fact that we reached number 3 in Puerto del Carmen, we started to receive bad reviews, umm strange as our previous 46 reviews were all excellent or very good, back to the review. You mentioned that it was the most expensive meal of your holiday, the prices have... More

Why the rave reviews? Average Italian, nice enough lasagne, pizza a bit well done and skinny with the toppings, wine okay for the price, special coffees made with squirty can cream! Looks nice, but just average!!

Thank you so much for putting such an average review on, maybe the 263 other people that put reviews on, 200 excellent and 63 very good, all got it wrong.

My wife and I had lunch in this restaurant on the last day of our holiday 26/06/2014 and my wife ordered fish and I ordered fillet steak.
