I had a Pizza Parma and a glass of red wine, alone. Lovely service and the waiter (italian) came to check that I gad a good time often, and chatted with me. Very nice and polite. Both pizza and wine were excellent, and I could take home the piece I didn't have place for at the time :-) I finished... More

In the menucard it said "fresh vegetables" wich wasn't the case - they obviously had been frozen five minutes before beeing served. The "potatoes" were overdone french fries and tasted like crap. When we friendly pointed the bad food out to the waiter he started spitting, yelling and getting offensive. If we could give 0 stars we would. The wine... More

This place will have good pizza and pasta dishes but it also has a nice selection of Italian meat and chicken dishes and some seafood. Service is friendly and attentive. If you want to eat the other dishes a bit pricey but pizza reasonable for a good quality home made variety in a proper oven

We enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner. The food was excellent as was the service and ambiance. Would highly recommend. Glasses of house wine are very large and delicious. Lasagna was the best that I'd ever had. Would return.

I had the pleasure of eating the best steak I've had in Gran Canaria and my wife loved her spaghetti carbonara as well. Remember to have the tiramisu for dessert! We will be back!

When we first entered this Italian restaurant we only expected to have a pizza, a glas of wine and then leave. We never expected to experience what we did. Mr Savino is really one of a kind. After our first visit we decided to make two more reservations before we went home again. He, together with his crew, gave us... More

Mr Savino a most friendly guy and mycologist. Before and under a delisious dinner we found out that Savino had picked "yellow cantarelli" and "King Boleto" (Boletus edulis) in the canarian highlands. I love this guy, spontanious and friendly, just like us swedes from northern Sweden. The dinner in nov.-15, I won´t forget nor his, Savino´s, presentation of the premises... More

Having been to this restaurant a number of times over the years I will never hesitate to come back. The staff are really friendly and attentive, the setting is nice. The food is really good, I would recommend the lasagne and the carbonara both fantastic. Only gripe is the soft drinks come in 200ml bottles which is a joke. Aside... More
