A Taste Of Italy At Sabor Italiano

Wed, April 17th, 2013 - By Colin

Pizza, pasta, and lasagna, three words that conjure up Italian taste sensations, add that fresh home made touch and a Los Cristianos beach a couple of minutes away and it’s a winning combination. That’s what’s on offer at Sabor Italiano one of the newer restaurants in the popular nightlife area of Avenida La Habana above Las Vistas beach.

I can’t always wait until the evening, especially after a hearty swim, so the terrace opposite San Telmo suits me fine to let the sun warm me up and the food replenish my energy. The 30cm thin crust pizzas are crisp and tasty and just five euros each. I’m more mouse than man so the Quatro Formaggi (4 cheeses) is often my choice but for something with a Spanish influence Principessa (Serrano ham and rocket) hits the spot. Salsiccia Pugliese (sausage) can also tempt me and vegetarians will no doubt enjoy the Vegetariana (aubergine, zucchini, and sweet pepper).

For a lighter touch on a hot afternoon, a mixed salad of Caprese (mozzarella, tomato, and basil) or Carpaccio ( beef, parmesan, and rocket) will ease the mood. When in Rome…well I think that sentiment can be transferred to Tenerife so maybe a chilled Italian wine is called for. A Barbera d’Asti from the red, or a Trebbiano de Puglia from the white sounds good and there’s Lambrusco (aah memories of Christmas dinner at my aunty’s) in either colour.

The bare tiled floor and chequered table cloths inside add to the intimate feel for evening dining but with warm Tenerife nights many prefer to spill outside to share the buzz of the busy social scene. Lasagne is always a good option with bolognese or ricotta cheese and spinach and let’s not forget that old favourite spaghetti, all these dishes start from six euros. Home made specialties like bruschetta bread or the metre long pizza caught my eye and there’s always a choice of pastries for dessert.

With the San Telmo area being a well used meeting point for evenings in Los Cristianos or beyond to Playa de Las Americas, Sabor Italiano is encouraging groups of friends to call in. The ‘eat as much as you like’ menu offers a chance to mix and match the full range at 10 euros per person for a minimum of six people. There is also a full home delivery service for Los Cristianos and Las Americas with a 1.50 euro charge.
