Authentic food, friendly service in a no nonsense and rustic setting. We really enjoyed our pasta dishes - the quality and freshness of the ingredients really stood out. Our only regret is that we were in Formentera for only 1 day! We would loved to have returned here again.

The waiters were so passionate about their food. One almost feels as if you are a guest at an Italian family’s house. Just brilliant. Don’t think about it - just go and don’t forget to book!

We visited this wonderful quaint restaurant.
Authentic food with wonderful selection of homemade dishes!
The tiramisu was one of the best I have had!

Really great italian pasta, no-nonsense. Reservation needed, but if you come at 20.30, it might be there is still a spot.
We went twice during our 4 days stay, as it was such a delicious experience.

It’s simple and run by Italians like much of this island. The restaurant has a simple menu. A limited number of starters mains and deserts. The mains are based around different pastas and sauces. This is not fine dining this is wholesome food. I agree with the owner that ‘simple is difficult’ get it wrong and it’s bland and tasteless but get it right and it works.

Many of the tables were occupied by Italians. They seemed to be having a pretty good time too. Italians are fierce critics of Italian food.

The seated area is an covered outdoor place for casual dining - ideal for the warm summer Formentera evenings.

They have selected Spanish wines that work with Italian food. Try wine by the glass or by the bottle.

Enjoy the conversation with the waiters and wave to the owners girlfriend who puts the food together in the cucina.
