We visited Malandrino as it is a short walk from where we are staying and because of the great trip advisor comments. We were not disappointed! The pizza (Romano) was to die for; with prosciutto, tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan - the base was crispy and perfectly cooked. My sister lived in Italy for a year and she said it tasted... More

This is a case where Trip Advisor should have a more detailed grading system. I can't give this place 5 stars but it seems better than 4. We ate here last weekend ( for a light dinner ) and I forgot to write a review. The value is 5/5 - quite inexpensive. I'd give the food a 4/5. Combination ham... More

I love eating pizzas, Italian food is one of my favorites. And I can say, Malandrino is one of the best pizza places you can find is this area. in addition, the place is unique, it doesnt have many tables, there is a big traditional oven so you can see how the pizzas are being cooked, etc.

Pizzas and salad were delicious, patio under the lemon tree charming, friendly and professional service. Pizza is napoletana-style, prepared in a wood fired oven with high quality ingredients. They make their own limoncello from the lemons, yum!

I visited Malandrino through a process of triangulation; first I googled 'Italian pizza Valparaiso .cl', and then I read the first place reviewed on tripadvisor. Sure, there are often some pretty perfunctory reviews on here, but one that stood out was from a couple from my native Australia who dismissed the food as just OK and then complained that the...

Nice pizzas with premium ingredients done in a clay oven. The place has a nice atmosphere and they do take away if you need it. Price value is really good specially if you are in a budget as most restaurants around can be pretty expensive.

We ate here last night (a Wednesday), having turned up on a Tuesday and the restaurant being closed (they are open Wednesday to Sunday). Firstly, I would advise you to book in advance as we had the options of eating outside (cold!) or eating at the bar. We chose to sit at the bar, which turned out to be great,... More

A small, cozy, remarkable restaurant. The owner/manager, Patricio, made even the oven himself. Always there overlooking every detail. If the weather is good, ask for the terrace. Intimate, shaded by a nice lemon tree and with fragrant spices that make the dinner a well rounded relaxed experience.

We ate in the patio out the back under some of the biggest lemons i've ever seen and grape vines; monster basil bushes behind me. Good service (the savblanc was not cold) but the pizzas were outstanding --- some of the best i've ever had anywhere! Wood fired oven, thin crust, top ingredients. Very pleasant lunch after a lovely stroll... More

Looking for pizza in Valparaiso? Look no further. We called ahead for take out but they insisted they would not prepare it until we were in the restaurant. The restaurant was so inviting, we decided to dine there. One of the best pizzas I have ever had. And yes, I have been to italy.
