“Pasta Heaven”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I have dined here four times over the last two visits to Tenerife. The food is the main reason for my overall rating, as well as the personal service from the owners. Although a small place with a limited menu, at least everything they prepare is freshly made. We will go back every year providing the owners come back after they get married this year!

“Well worth a visit!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Please ensure you make a visit to this lovely Italian if you are in the area. We were staying a 10 Euro taxi trip away but so glad we made the trip. 2 adults, 2 children, starters, mains, deserts, 2 drinks each and the bill was around 50 Euro's. It was certainly worth every cent and would pay it again.
The couple as many people have stated are very kind, helpful and informative about the dishes they offer.
The pasta dishes were fresh and full of flavour. Our children had spaghetti bolognaise and they ate the whole lot!!
There is only 5 tables so unless you go early doors (as we did) I would suggest you book.
They do a lunch time deal which I would have tried if we were within walking distance.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Very small place, only 5 or 6 tables. Very authentic Italian food. Mixed starters was excellent. Their pasta was excellent and their beef. Tiramisu was very good as well and their chocolate cake aswell. The atmosphere is not good though. They should definately turn off their tv and have music instead.Recommended for a great cheap dinner.

“Lovely lovely lovely”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

We were on holiday with family and after my husband and son in law had lunch here they insisted we had to go back for a meal. We were not disappointed the food was wonderful very flavoursome fresh beautifully presented.we were a party of six adults and two children and although this is a very small restaurant the young couple accommodated us with no fuss at all..
Everyone agreed it has to be first on our list to eat when we visit tenerife again.
All I can say about the negative comments is some people don't know good food when it's in front of them!!!!!
Please give first love a try you won't be disappointed

“Delissimo!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

To keep it breif the food was great, the waitress was great and the chef who came out to speak to us a few times was also great. I ate a beef carpaccio with orange which was really tasty, really nice combinations of flavor and i would highly recommend it. My main course was a pasta dish with prawns and rocket in a tomato sauce, it was good but i was a little disappointed after the started which was really terrific. Myself and my girlfriend shared a chocolate souffle which again was wonderful. We had a bottle of white wine which was pretty good, as a whole the meal was really enjoyable from the moment we came to the moment we left. It was probably the second best meal we had in tenerife and it was half the price of the one that was better, it also was the cheapest restaurant we ate in were we got starters/mains and a bottle of wine.
