Amazing food and ambiance. We had a delicious eggplant starter followed by equally good pizza, pasta and risotto dishes. The place has a very warm atmosphere that captures the Italian feel.

What a fantastic little restaurant. We passed by at lunch time. It looked like a very lively place, packed with locals. We were seated very quickly despite not having a reservation. The food was excellent and so fresh and the service was impeccable and really friendly.

Great Italian food. We had the pasta bolognese, the pizza, and the eggplant appetizer. All of the food was fresh and delicious. Good quality ingredients. And the service was fabulous - we felt like family by the time we left. Location is also great - lots of stores/people watching in the area. Would definitely recommend!

Thank you tripadvisor! We went to this restaurant two times based on the online reviews. The customer service was efficient and friendly. The food was excellent and the waiter even brought us a free glass of limoncello when we finished our meal. If you are craving Italian food while in Madrid just goooo!

We shared the melanzane parmigiana to start which was delicious and pizza and pasta for mains. My partner described his pizza as 'the best he... More

I went for lunch, I had pizza and a starter (with mozarella, eggplant, etc) and a glass of wine. Very tasty food, authentic italian pizza, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices. It's a place you'll have a decent meal.

Malatesta has outdoor seating in a bustling street just off Calle Mayor in Madrid. The atmosphere is great, the waiting staff very attentive and friendly too. The food is delicious, I had beef fillet which was cooked to perfection and presented well. The desserts were equally high quality, and I recommend the chocolate and almond cake. Overall a great meal... More

I past by Malatesta by chance and decided to change plans and have some Italian food. What a great decision! Everything was perfect: both dinning rooms are very special (I was recommeded to go donwstairs, as it was too hot outside). Upstairs is a tile decorated (originally old) and downstairs is like a brick cellar. The food is just excellent:... More
