Having read the hype we expected more.

Firstly the portions were noticeably smaller than elsewhere on the island and then my food had been over-seasoned. Sad because other than that it was a great combination of flavours.
My final gripe was there was little friendliness or warmth from the staff. This was more noticeable when anyone Italian came in.
In fairness, this place has a lot going for it and I guess we just happened to stumble in on a difficult night.

This is a lovely italian pizza/pasta restaurant and definitely worth a visit. Great pizza and very friendly staff and a cute cat. Pasta dishes are also very good and try the Fogo cheese starter as it's really good. Well worth a visit

There really was no need to pay for a meal when the food was so excellent in our hotel, the food was not very tasty

I cannot understand why this restaurant is only rated 15 of 19. If this is correct, the other restaurant must be out of this world.
The (Italian) food is as tasty as I have ever tasted. The ambience is excellent and the owner, Barbara, serves the food with a smile.
All in all, I think that for quality at the prices charged, this restaurant rates higher than most of the restaurants I have eaten in in Portuga, Spain or the Canaries.
I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation,

a bit off the road you find this airy restaurant, the staff seems to be rather busy, but for a pizza there is no other place to go. Nice crispy, tasty,
