The menu is large and inviting, you can spend some time deciding as everything looks very tasty. As the house specialty is pasta is was a good way to start with this menu. I aged waiting for my food which could be negative if you are really hungry, but i can say it was worth the wait, the pasta was well made, it lived up to the homemade expectations, a very rich-thick sauce (bit too salty maybe) but delicious, because of this experience it is worth coming back to taste all the other many offerings in the menu. Prices are average and so is the service.

We loved this café and ended up visiting several times, largely thanks to the wonderful juice menu. The Banana Express was particularly good IMO, and don't miss the buffalo wings either.

I came to this restaurant with a group of friends based on the trip advisor reviews. We all ordered our meals but had a vegetarian in the group who was struggling with the options available. She didn't want a heavy meal at lunch and wanted a sandwich. She wanted to order the Hawaiian sandwich but substitute the ham. The waiter couldn't speak English and no-one working there could. We tried several times to explain what she wanted and the waiter and chef refused to change the ham. What world are we in when we can't change a simple sandwich?!?! It caused such an issue with the staff that we left and took our business to another cafe who gladly accommodated vegetarians. If you cannot employ staff who are able to think outside the box and accommodate very simple requests, but yes deviate from the menu SLIGHTLY, then I have no interest in returning. Very disappointing. Not only that the staff were hanging around while we sat at a table that had been used and not cleaned. Disappointing overall.

Hi! I am the owner of Tentaciones Trattoria. I am sorry you had problems at the restaurant but I wish to make some things clear:
1. We have plenty of vegetarian options in the menu, nearly 50% of it, so why changing a proven and tested recipe?
2. I think you are the one who needs to think outside the box given that you are coming to a Spanish speaking country and you should be the one adapting to it. And we do have members of the staff who speak English, you should have asked for one.
3. As I was reported that day, the "vegetarian" member of the group wanted to change chicken instead of the original ham...vegetarian?
4. Please realize you are dealing with professional people who care about their business, and we work very hard to please each and every customer and that is why we have 33 reviews between excellent (20) and very good (13).
5. And to anyone else who is reading this post, give us a chance to realize everything we say is true. We will welcome every tourist, and do not hesitate to ask for an english speaking member of the staff. Thank you for reading!

Service staff are great, they always have a smile on their face and it can get busy. The burgers are really big and good - if you want it medium I would order it rojo. Good pastas as well. Cool interior and great music make this is a chilled out restaurant experience.
