We visit Estepona usually two times per year it is fundamentally because we have discovered a few restaurants that we really enjoy going back to visit. Itapu is one of them and as always we were not disappointed with the food, drink and excellent service from the owners and other staff. The bar is also great for watching sport as it has at least 3 large TV screens. I also took part in their weekly golf day which was a lot of fun and a good way to meet new friends. We are looking forward to going back as soon as possible and highly recommend it.

Went looking for a place to watch American football and found iTapu! We had a wonderful prawn pil-pil to start that was spicy and flavorful! For our mains we had a pizza and the daily special, Indonesian spicy pork. The pork was fabulously seasoned, not overwhelmingly spicy, and served with rice and salad on the side. Finished with cafe con leche and dessert. Wonderful restaurant run by a friendly and welcoming British couple!

As you have discovered, apart from our famous pizzas and pastas, we also provide a wide variety of other delicious options on our menu. Our Asian dishes have proven to be very popular additions.

We hope to see you back here very soon.

We visit Cancelada every year, but this year my daughter, our grandson and his girlfriend joined us.
Although they did not know what to expect they were very impressed with the quality of food and good service that is provided by the Itapu restaurant. My daughter was also particulary impresssed with the adjacent table of bull fighting matadors that were also dining that evening!
Over the years we have been regular visitors to Linda and the Itapu restaurant, the menu is always varied , excellently cooked and served. Linda is a gem and goes out of her way to make sure that you leave a satisfied customer! Roll on next year.

After your yearly visits, it was lovely to meet your daughter, grandson and his girlfriend. We were so pleased that they also enjoyed their first experience of ITAPU cuisine, service and ambience.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and ranking in your TripAdvisor review. We really apprecaite the time you have taken to encourage prospective visitors that they will receive a warm welcome and good food in a relaxed environment.

The 10 Bullfighters were a special treat for us as well that night - apparently we had been highly recommended and they seemed to have enjoyed their night with us. Although we were fully booked, they were very pleasant, good natured and patiently drank at the bar until we were able to create a table for them.

We look forward to seeing you and the family again, same time next year.

Warm regards from Linda and the Team at ITAPU

I do not understand all these good reviews. Maybe the worst pizza I have eat in Spain. You should rather buy a frozen pizza from any supermarket. Service was bad.

Visitors to ITAPU know the high quality and good reputation of our pizzas - I think we will leave it for the readers, regular clients and the majority of our contented reviewers to draw their own conclusion regarding the remarks in this review.

From the moment we walked in the place felt right. The owners recognised us from last year and we felt at ease straightaway. Having twin 6 year old boys this is very important in enabling the whole family to enjoy any dining experience.
The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was varied, giving plenty of options for everyone and was of a very high standard. We enjoyed numerous evenings here and also used their takeaway service which again was excellent. We highly recommend Itapu and will be back again soon.
