The quality of an establishment and its management is often best measured when something goes wrong. In this case I have to say that the error was mine, I ordered Singapore noodles and the waitress told me that it wasn’t on the menu but they did do a Singapore rice. I was deep in conversation but still should have rechecked... More

Aaaaaawwww - Thank you so much for your lovely and frank review of that night. I remember it well and was rather worried that you didn't have a full meal!

We weren't sure about going in as the exterior doesn't look anything special, but once inside it's tastefully decorated and has a friendly atmosphere. As the evening progressed several ex-pats came in for evening drinks and interacted with the hosts. The pizzas were good, different from what you get in British pizza chain restaurants and went down well with a... More

We first visited Itapu about 3 years ago after passing it by chance walking through cancelada and fancying a simple pizza/pasta and since then we go at least once every year. This time we visited twice in 2 weeks. Although the restaurant isn't as well appointed as some others in the area, the prices are reasonable and the food is... More

Third time here in 2 weeks - excellent food and choice. Great service - sat inside as 32 degrees tonight which is warm even by Costa del Sol standards. Service was great - Sarah was fantastic and couldn't do enough to help us. Pasta and pizza both delicious and great atmosphere! Will definitely return next year!

It was nice to see you and the family enjoy our food, ambience and atmosphere over your 2 week period. Your last night certainly was hot and humid, which is why everyone opted for the air-conditioning inside the restaurant. We appreciate you taking the time to write your positive review and rating on TripAdvisor. Thank you for your kind support.... More

Myself and my daughter visited here in June on a night when the restaurant had live entertainment. We were greeted by the owners who said that the restaurant was full however there were two seats at the bar. On this occasion we ordered two pizzas which arrived fairly promptly and were very enjoyable although slightly overcooked around the edges. My... More
