We ended up to this restaurant after reading good and bad reviews and were warmly welcomed by the owners. The service and food are excellent, all freshly cooked and homemade Italian dishes. Thanks Sergio and Yuri, we hardly recommend your restaurant and will definitely come back. Ps: Gavino is also the name of their loved dachshund 

Went here early at around 7pm and was greeted by the very friendly owner. We had a drink which came with a free tapas. Had main (mostly pasta and lasagna on the menu) and dessert. With the dessert came a small alcoholic drink too. We paid +/- 30 euros in total. Yes the food is reheated in a microwave and... More

By luck I was lost and hungry walking in Madrid with my family and found this place which offered me a "vegetarian option" because traditional Spanish meals are full of meat. WOW! best Italian I ever had, plus the personalized attention by the owner itself made it even more special. Deserts are to die for.

We went here after reading peoples reviews and having such good ratings, but wish we hadnt. We visited at 7pm and it was empty, another sign not to go in but we did. The restaurant is small and clean but you go for the food. The starters are 10 euros each and for the main courses there is only pasta.... More

We stumbled on this place in the pouring rain right at the end of our stay. The food is fantastic and although we spent a long time working out the menu it was worth it. Sergio doesn't speak much English so bear with him (translator app great for working out the hard bits of the menu). The service was exceptional,... More

Micro-wave food, heaten in front of you (!) and disgusting. I still don't know what was in the pesto lasagna. No a good experience at all.

Honestly we walked by and only went in for the free wifi, but we were pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of the Italian cuisine! Sergio, the owner/host, greeted us at the door and could not be more friendly! He offered us all sorts of different pasta combinations and promised satisfaction or your money back. He offered us a delicious tapas... More

Nice traditional italian resto! Good food and good price! The owner, an italian young man makes it also feel more italian and explains perfectly each dish. Amazing "burretta with tomatoes and basil" and very light and tasty tiramisou. Will come back for sure!

I went this restaurant last week. It was almost empty until we left. It was quite bad that 4-5 points sound like a lie. I suspect that thr cook is changed. Nothing special, mediocre and will never return. Dont believe the wonderful critics here since it shoud have written with different cuisine. I think people are not going back again.
