“Great food, great value.”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

Surprisingly good pizza, base and sauce were excellent, as was value and service.

We also had the pasta one evening which was also very good.

“Great little restaurant.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Tucked away in the centre of a shopping area this Italian restaurant could easily be missed.
We decided to have lunch there on the last day of our holiday. Lovely traditionally decorated restaurant, helpful and friendly staff and excellent food. Cold Peroni beer was really appreciated on such a hot day. Definitely worth a visit if you are in or near the little shopping centre on the prom overlooking the Dorado beach.

“The Italian Job......a great job”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Visited this place on our first night of vacation. Fabio, the proprietor explained all the meals and from his conversation with us, he is a person who adores his job as well as Italian cuisine. Started off with beautiful cold Peroni beer which set the tone for the rest of the night. The pizza there is fabulous and is genuine authentic piza,not like the ones you'd get in supermarkets.
Enjoyed the first night there so much that we returned for a second visit for another fabulous meal.

“Great little Italian - in a shopping centre”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Not exactly a charming location although not far off the strip but the good food and friendly service makes up for it. The home made pasta special was lovely as were the pizzas. The only other downside is the caged bird at the entrance but I realise that's a personal thing. Recommended.

“A little gem!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We were staying next door in the Princesa Yaiza for 11 nights B&B so we ate out every night which was brilliant with so much choice in the locality.

Our kids love pizza on the beach when abroad so my first visit to this restaurant was to get a take away pizza for the kids. While waiting for the Pizza I enjoyed a cold Peroni at the bar and some chat with the staff.

The Pizza was brilliant and the menu enticing so we all returned a few days later for a sit down meal. The food is very good quality, traditional Italian cuisine and we all loved it.

The service is superb and the fuss they make of the kids is great. We used the place 4 times in total (2 take away and 2 sit-in) and cannot recommend highly enough.
