La Scarpetta is a combination of incredible food - the seafood was incredibly fresh, the lobster and scallop ravioli specials, were particular standout meals. The shoulder of lamb was a huge portion of very well cooked, quality meat. We ate here twice during our stay. The owner is a funny guy, he is extravagant and a bit OTT, but harmless and funny. He picked our wines, including a delicious prosecco, we were given complimentary bruscetta and a whole bottle of homemade limoncello on our last night which was delicious. Again couldn't fault it. Very reasonable for the huge portions and excellent quality of the seafood.

Good atmosphere but the staff try too hard to please and are rather too hands-on!! Italian food for variety as most restaurants are fish based in Los Abrigos.

A meal at la Scarpetta (Los Abrigos,Tenerife) truly is an experience, beginning with meeting Mateos the owner, he will tell you he is full, or closed and no tables left (even if the place looks empty) he will make a fuss and get you a table, he loves ladies,I promise you it is well worth the charade, he does it to everybody.
The food is literally amazing, the best Pizza I have ever eaten anywhere, the fish is incredible,the sauces a work of art, the scallops ravioli pure genius and the lobster pasta has to be seen to be believed.
Meat, pasta, fish whatever you order, the presentation is fabulous, the portions are generous and the taste incredible, all of this topped off with a great location watching the little harbor go about its business.
I have used this for personal and business occasions, so from 2 plates to 20, all excellent.

The show continues with the chupito's (little drinks) .Mateos will offer all the men "viagra" and loves to walk around waving 50 euro notes shouting "tippy tippy"
Wine list offers great value, if you want a casual night or a special night, trust me the fun begins when you walk in, then sit and watch other guests having the same treatment, you will need to travel a long way to have a better night out.

Great food, great service, great value, great ambience, try it.

Me and my boyfriend went there on Thursday evening following friend recommendation. We waited 10 minutes (we didn't book) cause the restaurant was full. After a extravagant greeting from the owner, we took a sit on the terrace. No menu was given, we ask for a wine list and the waiter ask us which kind of wines we fancied and we went for white, then he brought strait way a bottle of unknown wine hide in an ace bucket which we discovered was Greco di Tufo. Afterwords the owner came to us listing not very clearly specials and dishes, and offering us a nice and crispy focaccia as a welcome. We choose a special starter of fresh pescado and a plate of octopus and potatoes. When the food came out from the kitchen 15 min later, was brought to another table beside. The Owner apologise in a funny way blaming the inexperience waiter, however the quality and consistency of the food was absolutely delicious and tasteful. We skipped the dessert and go for Coffe and limoncello that went wrongly in the same table. Surprisingly our bill brought to us with treats in a nice wooden box and was only 50 euro written on a small white paper without any description or receipt.
Overall we spent a nice evening, laughing for the funny service but absolutely amazed about food and location. Definitely deserve visiting.
