We decided to have a couple of meals out even though we were staying in a hotel on HB basis. I chose this restaurant by reading the great reviews on TA, and we weren't disappointed. It's situated above Burger King on the promenade but don't let that put you off. It's just a good landmark for directions! We sat on... More

Visited 3 times out of the 10 we were on holiday. Gorgeous mozzarella and garlic melt. Pizza was fantastic due to Franco's homemade dough and cooked in a wood fired oven. Staff were extremely friendly, excellent views from the terrace.

Sadly we left this gem until the last day of our holiday. Chosen just by the reviews on here, this is certainly a place which won't disappoint even for those like myself who don't normally like Italian food. Pizzas are exceptional, the bolonese and pasta dishes better than any Italian restraunt back in the UK and the service was perfect... More

After finding possibly the worst place to eat in playa blanca the previous evening last night we ate here and it's was fantastic. The good was great and the service matched it. Will definitely be going back before we go home.

I went with my family, on the first day of our holiday in playa blanca, and instantly fell in love with the place!! Beautiful decorations and home grown chilli peppers. We ordered two pizzas, pork marsala with mushrooms and potatoes and a kids spaghetti bolognas. They were some of the best meals we ever had. We also had a gluten... More

Situated on the upper floor of the Papagayo Shopping Centre with beautiful views of Marina Rubicon from the roof terrace, this is a delightful restaurant offering a good range of delicious Italian meals in very pleasant surroundings. The pizza is amazing, traditionally cooked in a wood burning oven, with a wide range of tasty toppings available and very reasonably priced... More

We fancied a pizza night out during our week's holiday and ended up having two as they were so good! Probably the best pizzas we have ever eaten, the dough was so soft and flavoursome. Lovely setting too with the view out over the bay and the staff were all very friendly and provided great service. All in all, a... More

This was probably our overall favourite restaurant of the holiday - we ate here three times and chose it for our last night's holiday dinner. The kids loved it and chose from hamburgers, pizza, breaded chicken fillet and pasta, with a selection of ice-cream included for desert. My husband and I just loved their bruschetta to start, followed by a... More

Description
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. Our beautiful terrace has some of the best sea-views that Playa Blanca has to offer, and together with spectacular sunsets, and a chilled candlelit ambiance, it is simply the perfect place to relax and enjoy your evening.
