Stopped in for a quick bite with my daughter while at the beach last week, service was very good and friendly. We opted to share a pizza and didn't disappoint, prices are reasonable and a great location. would definitely return

We booked a specific table and when we arrived it was used by another family, the kitchen area was full of dirty crockery so not a good sign. The food was served to our party of 6 at different times so we had nearly finished when others where just getting their's When we asked about it one waiter was rude... More

Here I am back in Playa Blanca so it's time for some more reviews. There are many great places to eat, including this one but there are also some terrible places so make sure you check!

This is the best Italian in the area barr none. The pizza is as good as I've ever had and the pastas are phenomenal. Don't think there's any better outside Italy. Also as good a pint of Peroni anywhere. Cold as can be.

After getting slightly bored of the all inclusive food at our hotel - we were determined to go out for a tasty meal one evening... we stumbled across this place and were so glad we did! I had a pasta dish which was so full of flavour - plenty of chilli/garlic which I love :-) My nanna had a chicken... More

Had to send my wife's steak back as requested well done but bloody. Quality of meat was not good enough. Chicken Milanese was very nice but I asked for potatoes extra and got them but not the spaghetti. My biggest hate was frozen chips used uh!! fresh chips please

We skipped dinner at our hotel and booked this restaurant. The food is of a goodish standard, but not exceptional. Staff are pleasant, but service tends to be too quick, so that you feel a little pressurised to finish and leave. Prices were a bit high for this standard of restaurant, especially the wines.
