A fantastic wee place ,well worth looking for. The service was excellent and friendly and the menu was well explained( especially for us Italian novices!) . The food was fantastic, well cooked and well presented. Was very reasonably priced for the excellent quality of food that we had. A lovely place fir a lovely meal. Would definately recommend!!!

What a lovely change from the usual food you find in Tenerife. You can get the ‘traditional’ steak with mushroom sauce and chips etc. (and very good it was too) but this is really a cosy Italian restaurant run by a lovely young couple. Their recommendation was the ‘mixed starter’, home-made pasta which a delicious sauce and a homemade dessert... More

On our recent visit to Tenerife my wife and I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of TripAdvisor . The place is small and we were lucky to get a reservation on our second night. We both had fillet steak and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was first class. We enjoyed the experience so... More

I'm by no means a 'foodie' but really look forward to dining here. Just about managed to get a table the second night of our holiday, then, despite there being recent additional tables, had to wait a whole week to get an evening reservation. That says it all. Quality !!

We have passed this restaurant many times, not realising that it was a stand alone restaurant, as there are several establishments close together.......Take a minute read the menu....book a table...if you appreciate good food, you will not be disappointed. The hosts are passionate and hospitable as they explain and recommend all the dishes on the menu. The seafood linguine is... More

You nearly always need to book for this restaurant, it has less than 30 seats. The menu is small and every dish is simple but well presented and really well cooked. My wife has a garlic allergy but this has presented no problems.

Wow, don't go anywhere else until you've eaten their food! Delicious, fantastic, welcomed by a couple who make you feel so special. Share a starter, it's amazing and the pasta is to die for, not to mention the Tiramisu. Came for our 1st visit, already booked to return this week, please don't miss this fab restaurant tucked away up from... More

We went here after reading about the restaurang on Trip Adviser. We had the starter with Italian specialties. A nice introduction to the Italian anti pasta. The warm dishes was a disappointment all around the Lasagna was a soup with no pasta sheet and rather tasteless. The meat was tender but it was just meat. The shellfish pasta was not... More
