We have gone to la scarpetta a lot when on holidays to Tenerife. The food is amazing! We a lot of the time go for steak and fish. We find the fish is absolutely delicious especially the starters such as the crab and avocado. When we go for steak one of us goes for well done the next for medium and the next for rare so we see it from all angles. We also go for desserts all of them are fantastic so much so that I have a hard time choosing! The atmosphere is amazing there and they are all very attentive. What's not to love?

We love the food here and have returned a few timesm its always buzzing, The owner/manager can be a little over the top, depends what you like, but i think he knows how far to go with his customers, saying that he is amusing. The waitress who seems to have been there a while is very efficiant. Look forward to returning soon

Having read the many reviews I can only be honest and tell you that without doubt this was one of the best Italian meals we have ever eaten. Matteo does provide his own unique brand of entertainment, maybe not to everyone's taste, however, I believe Matteo knows his audience and he is very careful when choosing his (victims). It was quite obvious to us that people who are of a sensitive nature or easily offended are left alone.

Matteo and Kerry run a very slick operation, 1st class food and service. In addition, I have never been to a restaurant were we received a bottle of wine to take home. La Scarpetta will be the one restaurant in Tenerife I would make a point of returning to.
A final thought, check out the value for money compared to a very pretentious restaurant (Los Rocques)in the same vicinity.

One of our party had an excellent sea bream but apart from that the food was average. We were very uncomfortable with the manner and behaviour of the owner although others might find it entertaining. Other waiting staff were pleasant. Our overall impression was poor.

Went on the recomedation of some friends, (what luck we didn't read the reviews first) loved this place ok yes you have to have a sense of humour but what a laugh and the meal was fantastic.
We started the meal off with a bottle of prosecco and a mix of meats and cheeses tipical of italy what a delight i felt like i was back in italy and we just relaxed and ate in our own time, my wife ordered the ravioli with the scallop and i had a seabass, cooked to perfection we tried each others and decided its one of the best meals we've had for a long time.
The owner Matteo quite unique but didn't mollest us, just had a laugh, we were surprised with the other reviews but everyone to themselves
The only complaint- it was our last night and would have liked to return and try more delights
