This is a very small restaurant which perhaps looks a bit like an Italian granny's kitchen. Some of the tables are not the best placed so as there are very few be prepared to be placed in draughty spot! The waitress was very efficient but very abrupt and to the point. The gentleman was friendly and helpful. The food was... More

The best pasta I've had on Tenerife! The service is quirky, but friendly, and definitely Italian. Fantastic food, great service and reasonable prices.

What a little gem of a restaurant. This place might be small in size and not the fanciest one about but it makes up for it with the fabulous food.I had a steak that just melted in the mouth and from what I could see on the other tables in the restaurant everything looked amazing. Would definitely recommend a vist... More

A tiny restaurant. Only a few tables. Our second visit. We had to wait 15 minutes before we could be seated, as all tables were occupied. We had different starters, various pasta main courses and a few bottles of red vine. All very good. And friendly service. Well worth a visit.

I passed this restaurant many times and did not believe the TA reviews. I finally decided to give it a go. It's the best example of under promising and over delivering. A small and uncomplicated restaurant but with a welcome, service and simply delicious food. A must. Damien.

With what seems to be the closure of Nonna Fina in Los Cris, I suppose First Love has been promoted to be our favourite Italian in the area. We both had bruschetta to start. One of us went with the mixed – four different toppings, each on a slice of bread – ham, rocket & parmesan, tomato and another now... More
