La Scarpetta da Mario is a very modern and specious Italian restaurant in the touristic area of Corralejo. This restaurant is a must visit when you like fresh made pasta.
When walking into the restaurant from the touristic area, you’ll immediately feel like you’re in Italy. They have a beautiful red pasta machine which they use to make all of their fresh pasta. Kids especially like the real Vespa scooter in the middle of the restaurant.
As a starter I recommend the bruschetta mixta (three different bruschetta’s) or the affettati misti Italiani for two (assortment of Italian meat, such like prosciutto and salami). Try a white sangria with it, you will not be disappointed.
Fresh pasta from La Scarpetta da Mario
The fresh pasta is really amazing and there is very much choice, like vegetarian lasagna, Pasta Carbonara and pasta with salmon in vodka cream sauce. The special menu changes a view times a year. They also serve pizzas, risotto, meat and fish dishes and special children’s dishes.
Of course they also have Italian desserts with delicious gelato. The chocolate fondant is my personal favourite. It is also an option to eat your dessert somewhere else, new Bakery café is on the other side of the street and serves delicious cakes and coffees. Sometimes Mister Crepe is nearby so you can have a take away crepe as dessert as well.
Taxi to La Scarpetta da Mario
Parking on the strip is for free, but most of the time its hard to find a parking place. When you aren’t staying within walking distance, then taking a taxi could be a better option.
The restaurant is open from Monday till Sundays from 13:00 till 23:30
Location: Avenida Nuestra Señora del Carmen 62, Corralejo (Fuerteventura)
