We were hoping to try this place earlier in the week but due to the timings we didn't quite make it. We eventually made it on the last night and was definitely a regret.... had we known about this place earlier we would have been back!!!. Food very authentic and they even sell gluten free pizza!!. When you first sit... More

We discovered this little Italian restaurant when exploring the large and magnificent city park of Garcia Sanabria near our hotel. We eat here twice during our stay in Santa Cruz and were delighted to have discovered it. The furnishings are 'shabby chic' and unassuming but the pasta and pizza they serve are delicious and extremely reasonably priced. As other reviewers... More

A contemporary and lively Italian restaurant run by a slightly eccentric friendly man. The menu was so affordable, pasta and pizza dishes at 6 and 7 euros that were delicious. With the pizzas you have the option to choose two toppings for that price. Very efficient service. Only negative was a limited white wine choice.

We visited this lovely restaurant rwice during our stay in santa cruz. The restaurant is situated near the parque. The food is delicious and the host Guiseppe is very gentle. Main courses vary between 7-10 euros. The pizza is defenatly a must, never ate a pizza like this before.

The pizza was simply awesome! They used to fried the mass, and the result is great! The environment is not special, but the service is very kind and you will find as if you were at home.

This is a poorly managed and depressing restaurant.We arrived at opening time to find staff racing around seemingly already overworked.Our party of 3 had a single dirty menu put on the table without a word by the manager (dressed for the disco) who was the only person with any English and too busy to take a drinks order.Our smiling young...

After reading the previous comment about the restaurant being closed we checked on google and used that address. They didn't have menus in English and staff didn't speak a lot of English but we muddled through and were delightfully surprised. First ordered focaccia which is not like any focaccia I have ever had, it was like 2 West Indian dumpling... More

Wasted another journey tonight to find this restaurant SHUT! The same situation presented itself to us last night with Bistrot de Renee, also shut, as it was also tonight as we walked past. Moral of all this? Don't go with reviews on Trip Advisor - check if the restaurant still is in existence first of all by phoning! Another frustrating... More

Il Convivio is an Italian restaurant held by a nice and polite Italian owner&cook&waiter. It's not the typical Italian restaurant, as their cuisine mixes strongly traditional Italian dishes with local ingredients from the Canary Islands. The menu provides a "Starter / Pasta / Dessert" structure and several Spanish and Canarian wines. Starters: I recommend to try the "pizza fritta napoletana"... More
