Malandrino tries to deliver a reasonably faithful version of Neapolitan wood-oven pizza, at a premium price, with a nice atmosphere. It doesn't operate in the quick manner of a Italian pizzeria, and - common for pizza in Chile - is rather expensive. Poor quality Chilean parmesan (reggianito) is inexplicably wide-gauge grated over the top of the rest of the pizzas... More

I have tried many pizzas in Valparaiso, Viña, Santiago and other Chilean cities, and I must say that Malandrino is the best place to have a real Italian pizza. The menu is not very broad, but their food is delicious. Have tried different pizzas, calzoni (the blue cheese's one is just amazing), lasagna and panacota, all of them very good.... More

We looked forward to have a nice pizza after our long trip from Mendoza. And we get exactly this: a very good pizza, very nice pasta and fast service. A little too fast. Paired with a good local wine. And at the end we also could pay via VISA what was very helpful after the cashmashine was brocken and we've... More

If you are looking for a non-tourist café in a lovely part of town, we loved this smart neighbourhood pizzeria. The evening we ate there all the other diners were local families and couples. Meals are served is in a series of rooms with high ceilings and a rustic atmosphere. A huge open-fire pizza oven operates near the centre, and... More

Really good, tasty, right out of the oven, cooked in a mud oven in front of your table. Very friendly people, family environment, not loud.

We came here at 9pm for dinner and it was happening, and got busier after us. The service was great. We ordered a bottle of wine, bruschetta and a margarita pizza. I must dock points on the bruschetta - it was really missing cheese. The flavor was good though. We loved the pizza and the wine which was carmenere (cheap... More

These guys really know how to make pizza! The crusts are nice and thin, and baked really well in the wood fire oven. It was fun to watch them make pizza, too. They move in a well choreographed dance between tossing dough, applying toppings, adding/removing pizzas from the oven, and serving. Popular place - we waited for about 40 minutes... More

This is the best pizza I've had in Chile! Everything tastes so fresh. The service was fast even though there was a busy lunchtime rush.
