We had breakfast every morning at the Vieja Panaderia and we enjoyed their sandwiches during our lunch break from scuba diving. Simple, delicious and a great spot in Santa Catalina

We stayed in Santa Catalina for 2 days, and both days we had breakfast here. We loved it! The owners are Italian and very friendly, would definitely go back. (Banana pancakes highly recommended) *gratzie di tutto :)

We went for both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was better than dinner. Good coffee, pancakes, fruit. For dinner the vino tinto (red wine) was quite nice and cheap. The pizza is ok, but this is Santa Caralina not Italy so this is to be expected....More

Excellent pizza and real Italian food! Incredible!!! Freshly baked bread and excellent red wine (negramaro tenuta Albano Carrisi) at very reasonable price. And the cherry on the top is the "tiramisù"! Simply delicious and possibly better than in Italy. Grazie mille!

The pizza is big enough for two as was the Italiano salad. Cold beer, a reasonable pour of wine. Great service!
