Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a really nice visit here when we had a day in Ibeza. Our server was a nice young girl who gave us recommendations on wine and food. Service was very good and the food was great too. A bottle of Chianti, hummus and...two pastas - the octopus and the pepper pasta (can’t think of the name off the top of my head). We sat outside and had a very enjoyable lunch.More

This gorgeous restaurant was tucked away on a bustling road; I’m glad we found it. Both the food and the service from the waiter was impeccable; his ability to joke along about not cutting Tagliatelle or he will cut my mum’s hand off had me...and my family laughing. I had the Amatriciana pasta which was outstanding; the sauce was lovely and aromatic, the pancetta sprinkled on top was also a lovely balance as it was salty. My dad had the carbonara which he said was also extraordinary. This place was lovely and I would definitely go back again and try some other things as their menu was large and varied. If you are in Ibiza town, I highly highly suggest coming. However, the AC could be a little stronger, at the beginning I was uncomfortable due to heat, but I acclimated in the end. 10’s all around, truly.More

Food was mediocre … starters were nice but the carbonara lacked flavour and so did the the seafood pasta( also slightly undercooked). The hummus was nice along with the bread and considering we were the first people at opening I expected more.More

Location is so quiet, sitting outside in the small street was picturesque. Waiter was very pleasant and spoke English very well which helped when asking for gluten free options. Very accommodating with gluten free options too, no pizza or pasta option but chicken, pork etc...available. The carbonara was delicious too! For lunch it was a bit pricier but the quality was excellent.More

Stumbled on this lovely little Italian restaurant in Eivissa. No reservation, but we were accommodated at 9pm. Tuna tartare starter was delicious. Ordered two pastas: Carbonara and ala Norma. Both very tasty, and the giant rigatonis in both dishes were unusual (for us) but fun....The owner was so friendly and helpful. Authentic Italian in a nice quiet spot without the craziness, crowds and bad food you usually get in Eivissa town.More

Picked this place up from reviews on tripadvisor and our party of 6 all thought it was excellent. Owner was really involved in the whole experience of what the food was about as well as drinks/wine selection and obviously really knows his stuff. Staff always...on hand if anything was needed. We had Frito Misto, some delicious fried bread dish and meats to start - all excellent. This was topped off with a variety of different pasta dishes for our party. I had the scoglio spaghetti, which is probably one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. Superb dining experience and if we weren’t going home so soon we would book again. Chilled out feel to the restaurant and a true gem hidden in the streets of Ibiza Town.More

Delicious and authentic Italian food, friendly owner, cute tables outdoors. I can especially recommend the sous vide grilled rib eye steak, but the pasta carbonara was also very good and authentic with egg yolk (no cream). The menu includes a great range of starters, we...only tried the Venetian bacalao, which was delicious.More

Arrived as a couple just before closing at lunchtime and the host offered us what he could in the time available. We had pulled pork and a caprese ‘pizza’ washed down with 2 of the best pints of Estrella that we’ve had on the island....The pulled pork came with 2 dips and was sublime, the caprese was also delicious. Can’t recommend this place enough and just wish we’d arrived sooner to sample more of the delights on offer. Best meal we’ve had in Ibiza and anywhere in a long time, well done.More
