We waited an hour and a half to be served - yes really! One man making pizzas, his son in the kitchen, one waitress serving, one waitress taking orders! The food was ok and the waitresses were lovely (it's never the waiting staff's fault) but overall it was a poor experience. They had run out of spaghetti, tagliatelle and lasagne!!... More

This little restaurant is at the beginning of the old town. The reason why we ate here is that the sign said homemade pasta's and pizza. We weren't dissapointed. The food was lovely. We opted for pasta dishes and the pizza's looked wonderful. Downside is that they had only 2 desserts to choose from. Cheesecake or Tiramsu.

We went here several times during our stay in Puerto del Carmen. The staff are very friendly and service-minded, and the restaurant itself has a very cozy atmosphere. The food is very good and represents excellent value for money! Highlights included the fried cheese with strawberries and ravioli amatriciana.

Thank Iver K
