We allways visit this restaurant during our stays at Tenerife. The restaurant is hosted by a young italian couple. They are allways very friendly and serviceminded. The food is exellent, especially the italian mix as a starter and the pasta-dishes.
We van highly recommend this restaurant, but you should order a table in forehand. It’s a very popular place.

Having scrolled through Trip Advisor to find a nice Italian restaurant for the evening, we came across first love.

We turned up and managed to get a table quickly. We ordered a mojito each while perusing the menu. Our mojito arrived, sadly this was a disaster. It had been made with Dark Rum and no sugar so was very hard to drink, also we both noticed the distinct lack of a mint taste, at first we thought the dark rum had over shadowed it. However on closer inspection the leaves in the drink were salad leaves and not mint!!!! Fortunately we saw the funny side and it became a mini competition as to who could finish it.

We ordered garlic bread and grilled goats cheese for staters. The garlic bread was sliced fresh bread but in a garlic oil so was greasy and poor tasting.

The goats cheese was tasteless (more like mozzarella).

The mains were pasta Amaticiala dish which was nice but small and did not have any kick to it as it should.

The other main was a lasagne which was so salty it was un edible.

The service as eluded to in previous reviews was as certainly questionable with the host sitting at our table unannounced 3 times.

Very disappointed and cannot recommend
