La Casa Parmigiano is one of the nicest dining spots of Puerto Del Carmen. It is situated in the bustling Fariones Sports Centre, which is sheltered from the wind, has a clear view and on a whole has always good weather. Whenever we go we always choose to dine on the terrace and savour one of the many pasta dishes. It is always possible to see the bustle of those whom play sports in the aforementioned sports centre, those being mainly tennis and paddle players. If during the day it is a pleasure to dine on the terrace then you will feel that dining in the evening doubles in comfort and wellbeing.
Our opinion is shared with many others who dine here and therefore it is recommended to book in advance. La Casa Del Parmigiano has an extended interior comfortable and cozy lounge equipped with sturdy furniture. Freshly produced products are harvested by the restaurant itself in Tiagua and Tao allowing for fresh and daily preparation of sauces and side dishes and therefore explains why La Casa Del Parmigiano produce the best pasta cuisine dishes in Lanzarote.
We enjoy especially the homemade pasta. Our favourites are the heart shaped pasta stuffed with parma ham drizzled in a three flavoured mushroom and ruccola sauce and ravioli´s stuffed with salmon, prawns and bacon. Of course you also have the options of spaghetti, penne, ravioli and tagliatelle each with their own sauce. They cook seafood such as; lobster, shrimp and clams, or if you wish with vegetables and all dishes are cooked with extra virgin oil.
To help work up an appetite there are some brief starters to choose from. There is a choice of steak carpaccios, salmon with courgettes, tasty Italian bresaola (salt-cured beef) or a variety of Italian sausage. Aside of the menu there is a daily starter, pasta, a meat and a fish. We like the grilled tuna as well as the squid with rice in its own flavour or a tasty cod over rice. Our recommended meat dishes would be the grilled steak or steak cooked in a mushroom, gorgonzola cheese or a spicy green pepper sauce. These dishes are adequate and do not reach the excellence of the pasta dishes however shows the extreme flexibility that there is in the kitchen.
There is a surprising selection of wines available. You have the choice of those from Lanzarote, Portugal and Chile, a solvent Spanish wine list and an ambitious range of Italian wines. The prices are average and are charged depending on the quality of the wine. We like the waiter service in La Casa Del Parmigiano, young staff characterized with freshness and charm. They also stand out for their agility and kindness. Desserts are also homemade however, in our opinion they fail to live up to the high standard of the pasta and rice dishes.
You can have lunch or dinner for 15-20 euros per person. Very well priced. Thinking about it, it is actually very well priced with accordance to the quality of the food. La Casa Del Parmigiano is twinned with Antica Trattoria, located on the main strip of Puerto Del Carmen just off the beach La Peñita.
