This place is a complete joke. 1 hour for a bowl of pasta that wasn't very nice uncooked awful. The only thing this place is good at is charging people. Save you money go elsewhere.

Just got from a week in Playa Blanca ate here 3 times & every time the food was fabulous. Whether it is pizza or pasta it's alway spot on. The garlic prawns start are sensational. The fresh mussels were lovely. The Sophia Loren Pizza was great,also the calzone was fab with plenty of filling. The Sangria was very good too.... More

Good service, the food was amazing, really fresh, great quality. I would definitely recommend this Italian. Good choice on the menu! Slightly back from the beach but worth it!

Came here for lunch and my husband and I shared a Italian ham pizza and our daughter had the Bolognese which she enjoyed very much. The pizza was one of the best I have had so highly recommend! Super fresh.

We ate here in May 2017. We both had pizza. It was like the authentic Italian pizza we have had in Italy. The pizzas were loaded with toppings. Nice location overlooking the ocean. Highly recommended.

Liked this place found the service friendly, the food was also good not the cheapest but still good. If you sit at the front there is a view of the sea with a sideways glance so views not the best. The waiters were really helpful with the kids which always helps on a family restaurant visit.

Thank Whadders
