Not cheap, but a great location, with great service, good food (the lamb shank lives up to its reputation) and a relaxed atmosphere.

We arrived on a whim with no booking and were not disappointed.

I would really have liked to rate it excellent.

La Pineta has an excellent atmosphere, with a large open deck and a beautiful view.

My lamb shank and veggies were the best I ever had, my spouse's Thai chicken and prawn curry was also excellent, but our guest's pizza was burnt.

The service at the table was excellent, but our bill was totally wrong, with the double counting of our mains.

Will visit again.

Try the 50% less pizzas .....
At least you won't loose all what is in your wallet.
We were expecting much better....
Not great

I've eaten at La Pineta a number of times and the food is always fanastic. The setting is also very special. My wife and I still talk about the lamb shank we had there almost three years ago, it stands out that much!
