Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Divina Italia

We had a few appointments in the capital yesterday and decided to have an impromptu lunch in the Charco de San Ginés area of Arrecife.

The food coming out of the kitchen looked fabulous, we decided to share the house salad (Ensalada Divina) and a spicy Pizza Vesubio. There were plenty of friendly waiters on hand, their language skills were being tested by the variety of nationalities who had been drawn to the restaurant for lunch.  read more »
