Not a huge fan of pizza but this restaurant changed my mind. Thin crust pizzas made to order and cooked in the pizza oven in the middle of the restaurant. Great service. Extremely busy place so be prepared to wait if you haven't booked.

Such a busy little place but well worth the wait for a table, our pizzas were superb, and sitting in the restaurant area you can watch it being cooked. Friendly staff can highly recommend.

We ate here three times in the week we spent in Lajares. The pizza is cooked in a classic wood-fired oven, and has a lovely thin, crisp crust. The fresh tagliatelli dishes were all excellent. The entrecote was all right but the chicken dish was...More
