“A must for Italian food lovers ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Called into this pizzeria on the off chance of getting a table. Luckily for us there was just one free, the others being reserved. What a lovely experience we had! Chef explained menu to us, as he likes to chop and change as fresh produce becomes available. Mozzarella salad was lovely, as was my ravioli. Tasted my husband's carbonara and will definitely have that next time! Home- made tiramisu with banana was delicious! Plus Italian wine and Peroni. A truly Italian meal. Will be back!

“Authentic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Seen the reviews and being a regular visitor to Benidorm just had to try it. Wasen't sure what to make of it at first being small with cafe like tables but seen quite a few reserved we thought we'd grab the only table spare. No menus just Alex, calmly reeling off the fresh ingredients he gets on the day and what he's gonna make from them. I ordered carbonara my wife had ravioli, with out doubt the best bloody Italian food we have EVER eaten. Don't be put off with the look of it or the fact there's no menu you will love it.

This restaurant was recommended and we were well impressed. It is a proper home-made Italian restaurant with ingredients that makes your mouth water and want to come back for more. Very reasonable priced. Don't be put off with no menus.

“Unbelievably good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Found this on trip advisor and wow am I glad...it is such a simple restaurant, very basic, but the food was delicious. There are no menus which is a little strange at first. The owner Alex comes over and says what the choices are, the pizza is delightful, but the pasta which is mixed in the shell of a whole Parmesan cheese is the best...great atmosphere, staff, wine and food, it's a must....

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

If you love real Italian food made with authentic Italian ingredients then you have to visit here.

There is no fixed menu or price list just a warm welcome from Alex who explains everything and also encourages you to try new things. We all had different pasta dishes so we all had a try of each other's and every one was beautiful!

We will definitely be visiting here next time we visit Benidorm.
