DA CANIO – NORTE Italian pizzerias

leave a comment »

This chain of Italian pizzerias and restaurants has a large and popular location in the El Trompo commercial centre, next door to the La Villa (Al Campo) shopping centre in San Jeronimo, the lower area of La Orotava. As there is plenty of seating, both inside and out on the patios overlooking the Orotava Valley, you should have no problem finding a free table as well as a parking spot right outside the door.  There is also a take-away service. Highchairs are available inside for seating small children.

The menu possibilites are great, with several pages of traditional Italian pastas and pizzas as well as other options. Half portions of most dishes are also possible, priced at three-quarters the full price. The full size portions are very large. Here are some examples:

Solomillo Roquefort €15.25, Revuelto (scramble) of egg, spinach and smoked salmon €9.40, Salad Caprichosa €8.50, Pizza Cuatro Estaciones (Four Seasons) €8.40, Pizza prices run from €6.25 to €9.95. Oriquiette in Gorgonzola Sauce €7.25, Spaghetti Bolonese €7.25, Tiramisu €4.05, 1 glass house wine €2.10, 1 bottle Dorada beer €1.80, 1/2 litre agua con gas €1.80, 1 cafe cortado €1.25.

You can spot the shopping centre by the large sign on the roof. Trompo translates as ‘spinning top’ (child’s toy) and there is a cutout of one on the roof, next to the name.

My comment: Food is good and pizzas have that authentic Italian flavour due to their traditional wood burning ovens.

Service is prompt and efficient, but do check your bill carefully, as mistakes have been made on ours a couple of times during very busy hours.

Open every day from 12:45 to 00:30. Telephone 922 326 868.

Address: C.C. El Trompo, Local 9, 38300 La Orotava.
