As I write, this was 2nd rated in mogan, it's good, a nice experience but flattered by the ranking. Has only 3 tables and is near the pharmacy so book. I had a meat pizza (meamola?), family had pasta. Starters were big and really good value, we had a large 3 flavoured "pizza"to share after being advised our 3 starters would be too much, rustic style so flavours weren't consistent. Enoteca is better for pasta (and strangely doesn't appear in mogan but is 2nd in gran canaria). For pizza I would rank it similarly to "so good!" but "bruschetta" focaccia starters were best so far this time. As an experience the chef came out and sang during cooking and they were good with kids. I would say worth going to for experience/value and they turned us round with 3 courses in just over an hour which I like but there are better.

You won't believe how small this place is , so book a table in advance it's worth it. You are literally sitting in the street in the more local part of Mogan, but it a fantastic experience. The good is fresh and really good quality and not too expensive. Very authentic Italian all made in front of you by a singing very happy chef!

The service was excellent large portions and great choice all washed down with a reasonably priced red. Will go again on our next visit.

This unassuming little restaurant on a hilly side street is a must to visit. The service was excellent, the food amazing and it cost very little. We had pasta and garlic bread with a bottle of house white wine. In Rome recently I thought the pasta was very good but this leaves it standing! It is the best pasta I have tasted anywhere. The arrabiatta was to die for. Cant' wait to visit it next time I am in Mogan.

We both enjoyed our dinner here with good tasting food with large portions and very thin crust pizzas, and good service and friendly staff

We went here on our last night unfortunately. We discovered this place to late but when we visit again this will be one of the first places we go to eat. The atmosphere is lovely and the owner was singing while cooking our meal which was lovely. The food was the best that we had eaten during our 10 days. A must for anyone who loves Italian food, pizza, etc.
