Location is lovely, both simple and elegant. The atmosphere is relaxing and the owners are serving themselves while being friendly to their clientele. Menu offers dishes different from classic standards and delirious tastes.

Very high quality sophisticated food presented in a very nice way. The staff and chef Angelo are from Toscana and you can see that in the menu. The servings are very generous. One of the best places to eat on the island. .

Can Gavinu is a bit of a landmark restaurant, being on the main road from San Francesc to San Fernando and having been there for years. It seems to change hands every few years and has had a mainly Italian tone for the last decade...More
