- Food is delicious. The Paella was enough for two meals for me. The service, I've never experienced better, and this was on a crowded Valentine's day. – Marie S., Yelp
- There are MANY resturants [sic] on Staten Island but none come even close to the outstanding food, great serivce [sic] and execellent [sic] prices. A trip to La Candela is like a trip to Spain from the music to the smells of garlic in the air. – divamommyof2, Urbanspoon
