Owned by a friend of a friend. We’re advised to try the seafood ravioli, octopus carpaccio and spaghetti vongole/ clams. The waiter told us none of the above were available, at which point the owner came past, so we chatted with him and expressed our...disappointment that the best dishes were out of stock. He shook his head and pressed his staff to make sure they were indeed unavailable, however turned out that everything was available!!!! Apparently my friend had similar problem the night before, and that was with the owner even ordering. As such, staff need to be trained a bit more. Other than that, wow the food!! For this unassuming spot in a side street, positioned under a huge tree. Fantastic. Homemade seafood stuffed ravioli, vongole pasta, all were superb. Owner even recommended the fried small fish which was off the menu. Excellent. The best place for your Italian fix in Tofo. Will definitely return.More

The menu has so many different dishes that it is difficult to choose. The food is great, and especially the octopus salad, the octopus bruschetta and the home made pasta are recommendable. The staff is super friendly and attentive. We came here to have both...lunch and dinner many times during our stay at Tofo Beach.More

Really tasty pizza in a great little place off the beach. Proper wood fired oven with a great selection of classic and seafood pizzas. Attentive staff, quick service and reasonably priced.

The best restaurant in Tofo. The pizza was brilliant - try the salame version! The Zambezian chicken was a complete discovery - so yummy. Personal attention by the Italian owners and the general wait staff were so friendly and fun. This place was the highlight...of our stay and we ate there at least once a dayMore

We did not expect a pizza oven in a small town in Mozambique! Delicious Vegetarian pizzas post diving hit the spot. The staff is friendly, the service prompt, and we really liked the pizza, an unexpected treat in Mozambique!
