Excellent food, reasonably priced, and a reasonable if not extensive wine list with some good Italian wines at sensible prices (I can recommend the Chianti Colli at €20 a bottle).... and until what follows next, the staff had been helpful and attentive. However, our evening was ruined when, prior to having dessert, we were told that we had to vacate... More

If you have problems with the Spanish kitchen like me, Italian cuisine can rescue you and Malatesta will be a great choice. We've eaten 2 dinners of our 3 nights in Madrid in Malatesta. The prices are good, pastas and pizzas are betwen 9-16 Euro. Staff and the service is fine and the atmosphere is very beautiful. It is located... More

Pasta, Pizza, seafood marinara were all really good. They also had focaccia bread which was very good. We ate inside, when we arrived for dinner at 8 PM ,we were the first... More

We stayed in Madrid recently for four days so perhaps it was a bit naughty to stray from the local cuisine i.e. tapas et al and opt for something Italian. Well, we certainly didn't regret it. Nor did we feel guilty! We enjoyed our meal here so much we had to go back a second time to make sure it... More

As we've lived in Spain for sometime we were pretty bored by most of the tourist type menus offered in Madrid, as well as shocked at some of the prices (often 3 times the price of similar food in our local restaurants in Andalucia). So as it was a nice evening we grabbed a table outside this Trattoria and enjoyed... More

The food here was nice and just what we fancied, I had the seafood pasta which was good, the muscles were big and it was cooked well. My girlfriend had the mushroom gnocchi which again was tasty and fresh. The only gripe I have is the service, it felt like we were a nuisance. Food was placed in front of... More

Off the beaten path near Plaza Mayor, my wife and I found Trattoria Malatesta. The staff could not have been nicer. The pizza looked good and received raves from other customers. We stuck with eggplant marinara followed by home made pasta and were not disappointed.The pasta was great as were the sauces. Tired of tapas or tourist traps, this is... More
