We had dinner at this restaurant on another night on our vacation in Gran Canaria. The restaurant is in the heart of Yumbo, ideal for dining there, before going out for a drink. It is an elegant restaurant, in which all the workers are Italian, which gave us a lot of confidence. To start, we ordered a Focaccia and a vitello tonnato. The Focaccia was very light, you could tell that the dough was worked. I wanted to ask them for the recipe… The vitello tonnato had a super special, delicious and creamy sauce. For mains we ordered pasta carbonara and an Italian pinsa to share. With the pinsa we feel again that pleasant sensation that we felt with focaccia: a light, crunchy and spongy dough with a lot of flavor. The pasta carbonara was at its perfect point: al dente. The whole pasta is simply delicious.The restaurant staff was super kind to us and helpful, they made sure that everything was to our liking.We will return to dine at this restaurant when we return from vacation to Gran Canaria, because it left us completely in love.

  8. Cacio y Pepe's .

    Love Cacio y Pepe’s, we tried it out as we recognised the owner from the previous restaurant. A great atmosphere and layout with tables inside and out. It was so nice we went back for another meal. The Tuna pizza was nice and thick and very tasty. The two of us had 4 different meals between us and each one was just as good as the other 3. We are going back to GC in 6 months and Cacio y Pepe’s will be our first evening meal. Well done guys, you are doing a great job…M&M
