Gran Italia Restaurant in Maspalomas

With its friendly staff and excellent food, Gran Italia in Maspalomas is one of the better restaurants in the area. If you are looking for Italian restaurants in Gran Canaria you do have to be careful. I’ve eaten at some really bad ones. But as you can see from the reviews Gran Italia is usually praised by visitors and this is because of the location as well as the tasty food.


Try the swordfish with prawns and mussels. You will be impressed with the extensive wine list too. If you’re looking for somewhere quiet to have a romantic meal, Gran Italia Maspalomas probably won’t fit the bill, because it tends to be busy (more so than the neighbouring restaurants) and loud at times. But this just adds to the atmosphere if you are looking for great food in a vibrant location.

The steaks are huge and the paella is also nice and tastes very fresh. If you have a starter and main meal or a main meal and dessert (or all three!) they will give you free coffee and liqueur afterwards as well.


Enjoy a view of the sunset as you enjoy your Italian food. You shouldn’t need to reserve a table – we never had any problems even when we turned up on a Friday or Saturday night in the busy season.

    I tried the swordfish with prawns and mussels. it was fishy and rather chewy! I recommend the McDonalds restaurant, very fast service and reasonable prices too! xx

    I’m sorry to hear that Michael 🙁 What a disappointment. What was up with the lobster – did they overcook it? Hope the rest of your holiday was good apart from this.
