This restaurant is in one of the lovely old back streets of Carihuela, just off the main sea road. The staff are very accommodating and friendly, and the food was of a good standard with the pasta tasting very fresh. This is one of the places I would definitely return to next time I'm in the area. It is small... More

Torremolinos seems to be overflowing with Italien places, but we were very happy to have come to this one. The free Bruschetta as a starter is a very nice touch. We the had beef and tuna carpaccio, both were very nice and the Seafood Pasta which was excellent, definitely some of the best Italian food I have had outside of... More

Stopped here for a meal after the beach . Staff very attentive and eager to help . My fiancé fancied a starter with mushrooms and the chef rustled up a dish specially for him. He had steak which was cooked to perfection and I had pasta with spinach and nuts which was to die for. Hope to get back there... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Torremolinos. Full Stop. Good food, fantastic wines and also consistency. I go there once a month and every time i am surprised by the freshness and tastyness of food. Autentic Italian food, no thrills, no plastic pizzas (no pizzas at all), but just some food with passion.

Not far from our hotel in Carihuela, we found it on TA and gave it a try. Well, the place is definitely deserves more attention, especially because of the good service and simple but fairly prepared pastas. There are so many restaurants in the area, especially those specializing in fish menu, so this restaurant is a good choice when one... More

We are both big fans of Italian cuisine so during the holidays Italian restaurants are always on our to visit list, this venue is just OK. What it lacks is fresh refined ingredients, those that make Italian kitchen stand out. But is not that bad either.

I was slightly disappointed with this restaurant which had been recommended by the apartments where we were staying. Their sauces I sure are prefabricated and not genuinely fresh, homemade. That is a pity, the place interior is lovely and the service is good.

Decided to try this restaurant because of all the excellent reviews.We shared a mixed bruschetta which was nice,main course I had pasta with mushrooms and butternut squash which was rather tasteless.My partner had beef escalope which was a little tough.Wouldn't return as there are far better Italians around.
