Yes , service is slightly slow but only because food is cooked freshly and the atmosphere and cosy corner is so nice the slight wait... More

We waited an hour and a half to be served - yes really! One man making pizzas, his son in the kitchen, one waitress serving, one waitress taking orders! The food was ok and the waitresses were lovely (it's never the waiting staff's fault) but overall it was a poor experience. They had run out of spaghetti, tagliatelle and lasagne!!... More

This little restaurant is at the beginning of the old town. The reason why we ate here is that the sign said homemade pasta's and pizza. We weren't dissapointed. The food was lovely. We opted for pasta dishes and the pizza's looked wonderful. Downside is that they had only 2 desserts to choose from. Cheesecake or Tiramsu.

We went here several times during our stay in Puerto del Carmen. The staff are very friendly and service-minded, and the restaurant itself has a very cozy atmosphere. The food is very good and represents excellent value for money! Highlights included the fried cheese with strawberries and ravioli amatriciana.

Nice service, good food and dine locations. We got well-tasted pizza, but a little expensive. Italian, but mor real Italian.

I don't tend to overexagerate opinions of restaurants I've visited but this place is truly a disgrace! Now, one has to take into account, it's not standard over here, for a waiter/waitress to check on how your meal is, or monitor the fulness of a glass, to top up the wine... they were very pleasant. We ordered a sirloin steak... More

Lovely looking rustic restaurant tucked away in the old town unfortunately the food we ordered was disappointing and didn’t live up to the look of the place. I had seafood tagliatelle and my wife had mushroom tagliatelle both were small and tasteless which was a shame as the pizzas others were having looked great.
