The food was delicious here. We had the most amazing pesto with rosemary and chickpea balls as part of a sharing platter starter. Rustic bread and olives was also a treat. Pizzas were fresh and authentic. Service was excellent. I would love to return.

This place is the real deal. Without question the best authentic neapolitan pizza in Lanzarote. Been going there for years. Nothing else comes close.

A new venture from the same team that ran one of London's iconic Italian restaurants.Boasting Lanzarote's only wood-fired oven you can enjoy a variety of home-made Artisan breads, Pizzas, as well as wood-roasted meats and vegetables. We also make our own fresh pasta daily, and have a wide selection of home-made desserts. Our beautiful terrace has some of the best sea-views that Playa Blanca has to offer, and together with spectacular sunsets, and a chilled candlelit ambiance, it is simply the perfect place to relax and enjoy your evening.
