The Buen Appetitio Pissa Restaurant is located about 100 meters behind Cano's Bakery. It is run by an Italian family but is only open Thursday through Saturday night. The service is good and it is one of five pizza's places in El Valle.

Unfortunately, Buon Appetito closed in March, 2015. IT was the best pizza in town. The owners have moved on to a new venture. The sign is still up on the main road, however, so don't be fooled.

Great place to eat. Homemade pasta cooked perfectly. Sauce was perfect. Great service. Owner speaks at least 3 languages! Although they told us they would be closing the restaurant the next night and would be the last night. It would be a big loss for El Valle if they do.

Once again in El Valle (Valle del Antón). Have just arrived at night, I took the chance to get there with no reservation. Fortunately it was open and there was free tables. I ordered a Serrano Pizza. It was just great. The tomato sauce is hand make I think. The pizza is thin and crunchy. Just great. As a desert... More

Excellent pizza and service. It is tranquil a place to spend a nice evening. It's a small place and popular place so we recommend to reserve in advance. Take into account it only opens at night.

Great pizza. Good friendly service. Husband and wife team make fresh pizza in front of you in a wood-fired oven! Make sure to book in advance since they only have 5 tables and get sold out in advance especially on weekends!

Visited El Valle twice and as a food lover wanted to try the restaurant which comes out as no1. First time visited restaurant was closed on sat night. This weekend I emailed week in advance. No reply. Turned up anyway and was turned away. 2 strikes out!

The pizza is incredible! I wish it were open more often but I'm also glad it's not as I would gain serious weight. The desserts are also incredible. I recommend the Cagliari pizza and the thing that's sort of like tiramisu. Buon apetito!

Make sure to make a reservation before you arrive, so you won't get to hear that it's full. This place is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever visited. All the dishes we have ordered (vegetarians) from the starters, pizza's, pasta untill the desert, were delicious. The starter gnocco fritto with zucchini is amazing and the desert Didi-... More

We have eaten here several times over the last year and have always had good food and wonderful service. The staff is very pleasant and works hard to keep everyone happy. The pizza is definitely the best in El Valle - lots of choices for toppings and a nice thin (but not too thin!) crust. We have also had the... More
