Why this Tenerife restaurant is special

You feel a jolly vibe which echoes Rome where the restaurant originally comes from.

We have eaten there several times inside and outside. We have also ordered more than one pizza take away.
Things were not so perfect, until the official inauguration. The restaurant reached perfection after its special pizza oven had arrived from Italy.

So now imagine that most dishes are even superior by looks compared to what is displayed above. Fillet steaks by the way seem to be a big favorite from what we have noticed just by passing by.

Pastas by Pomodoro y Basilico

They are good and the portions are big. Thursday is the day of Lasagne with Bolognaise sauce.

Desserts at the Toscal Longuera Tomato and Sweet Basil restaurant

Indeed, there are only a few selected desserts, some of which by the chef. The delicious Tiramisu is not to be missed.
Sorry for not having tried all of their so called 'Postres'.

What we think of this place

As said above, portions at this Roman style establishment are fairly large, in our mind. What is much to be appreciated also is that starters are big enough to be shared. Good wines are stocked. Also exclusive German beer brands are available.

Meat at this Toscal restaurant melts on your tongue. Need I say more?

We have tasted the mouth watering "Tomato and Sweet Basil" starter and have shared it with three people. Unfortunately, I've misplaced the photo of it.

Most charming dry Pasta display

That assortment of noodles behind glass is almost like a small  Pasta museum. You shall be surprised to encounter even more than that.

Latest news about the Pomodoro y Basilico of December 2018

There are up to three chefs now. We watched how a new one created the most artistic food presentations. However, not with miniature food portions as is normally the case. So now, this restaurant is really humming, as the food quality and service are as good as before. We live in its neighborhood and can see how full it is at night although parking is not always available by its front door. Smokers seem to prefer the small street terrace for eating. There, it's impossible not to be attracted by the magnificent dishes on the marble tables.
