please, please try the set menu, loads of choice and excellent value. The pasta starters are really great and the puddings are to die for!!
Set meal comes with a really good bottle of local wine, water and nibbles.

The full menu-currently €18- gave us three ample courses of really excellent food, beautifully presented.

We didn't know what to expect in the case of the inclusive glass of wine, following the comments of a previous reviewer. What happened was the very professional front of house guy asked our preferences (we both wanted red), poured out a couple of small glasses, then put the bottle on the table and invited us to help ourselves to more if we wanted it. Decent wine too!

We honestly couldn't figure out how they could give such quantity and quality at the price they were charging. This restaurant seemed to us to be offering incredible value for money.

Thank grey.dave

The service was good, my wife and I went for the set €18 menu which always come up good, having visited the restaurant time and time again over the last 3 years. Although the food was good, they now have a way of making some extra money. Within the set meal offering, they offer water and wine, rose or red (tinto ) however on selttling the bill we now find out that it's been changed to a glass of wine each, not that it states this anywhere on th menu , yet we have always received a bottle of wine with the set €18 meal. We challenged this with the girl at the reception to be told this was never the case and had to pay for a bottle on top of the meal price. We usually visit out of season and I'm wondering wheather this is a high season way of making more money, very disappointed ☹️☹️☹️

Since Origens took ownership of this restaurant in the latter part of 2016, our family have eaten there around 5 times and each meal has been great.
They have a great italian menu with various pastas and home made pizzas, but also offer alternative meals to Italian food as well.
This is the new sister restaurant to the very well established and highly accredited Origens restaurant on Carrer de l'Ave Maria also in L'escala and is certainly proving to be a great addition to L'escala's waterfront eateries.
The wine list also is rather extensive in comparison to other local Italian restaurants and we recommend trying our favourite white wine - Granoma Gessami which is superb for €14 a bottle !
Staff and management are really accommodating, and with their ever so friendly and charismatic new waiter - Oriol serving your table, You are guaranteed that you and your family will have a great experience for sure.
If you like Patata bravas... this place has the best in town !

Best Italian by a mile in L'escala !!!
