First impressions-what a fantastic position for a restaurant and it also had a lovely terraced area. On our first visit we both ordered the seafood soup and bread as a starter. Only one soup arrived and the waitress did apologise and brought a second soup shortly afterwards. When we had both finished our soups the bread finally arrived. The soup... More

Thought we'd give this place ago as always looks busy and still fresh appearance. Service to table was quick. Menu is still very similar to the others. But not expensive. More vegetarian choices would be good. In the end I had sword fish and vegetables, wife had veg ravelloi. Would visit again..

Great to sit on the terrace & watch nerja go by. Although a couple of bad reviews on here I have to disagree, food was great & the service was excellent. We had pizza which was gorgeous and the duck in fruit sauce cooked to perfection. I'd highly recommend it.

Owned by the already succesful Pinocchios (further up the road) the menu looks to be slightly less "pizza and pasta" than its sister, more "Mediterranean". Staff were efficient and friendly, and the atmosphere on the very warm evening that we went was lovely.

Ive visited this restaurant twice and been very disappointing both times. Food was average at best both times. on both occasions the service was very slow and on our first visit in 2013 a vegetarian in the group had a very bad experience where they were served meat and when the complained the meat was just removed from their dish...

Went here on recommendation. The food was very nice. A couple of us had pizza and another had lasagna. Possibly due to Barcelona playing at the time, we had to wave the waiter over each time we required anything. We joked he had gone to the bar opposite to watch the game they were so slow! Really put a downer... More

Sorry to disagree, food great, the artichoke ravioli in creamy nut sauce is too die for, I've had it every time I've eaten there and it's great. The wrong fish was served but changed with a smile and quickly. The young man who served us was fantastic, attentive and swift. The only down sides was the older woman who met... More

Without a doubt, this was a disastrous dining experience. Two hours waiting for a meal for group of 8 which came out bit by bit as each dish was literally begged for. Absolutely terrible. Staff have a terrible attitude and manager is just as defensive. When I went to manager to complain, there was another customer giving a similar complaint.... More
