“Estuopendo.... Bellisimo!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The most charming and modern Italian restaurant we have ever eaten in!!! Very chic design with excellent service and the most amazing food to complement this. The chef, Lucca, has outstanding skills, the food combination and flavours was truly incredible. My hubby's 60th Birthday celebration was made in to a very special occasion! The quality of the food is worthy of Michelin star standard at affordable prices. Fine dining at it's best! If you want to sample the best Italian food in Nerja, don't let it slip by......People..... you have got to visit! We shall be back.

“No better cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We love true Italian food with a passion but rarely find a restaurant that can truly deliver. Many Italian restaurants are unable to create the authenticity of a good Italian meal which can only be produced by using fresh ingredients that are cooked by a chef who has a genuine love of cooking. Luca is an unique chef who has the talent of creating a wonderful variety of dishes, whether you choose a simple pasta dish or a more sophisticated option you will receive food of the highest standard. I had almost forgotten how good an original Lasagne can be! The food alone is reason enough to visit this restaurant but this is also enhanced by a beautifully designed interior, comfortable and stylish furniture, fantastic service and a warm and friendly welcome. What more could you ask for? It's not one of the cheapest places to eat but no one could expect such a high class food experience to be given at a budget price. Nerja is fortunate to have a restaurant of this quality.

“Pleasant and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

As stated in my other reviews ( Fusion Restaurant and lounge and Oliva) one must wonder how the rating system on tripadvisor works. The afore mentionned restaurants are in quite another dining league as don chisciotte. But to the restaurant where we had dinner twqice over the past weeks.
The place is a bit hidden, but looks clean and proper on entrance . The owner (cook) and the service are amiable and quite willing to help with anything. The wine card features a recommandable Valpolicella ripasso at a reasonable price!
The kitchen is modern Italian, with a number of the chef's specials (ravioli's).
The portions are large and it may serve to ask for half portions and share them in order to have the benefits of the kitchens skills.
We had on our second visit - we were almost the only guests - the opportunity to try more than 6 different dishes,
Tasty and well presented. the only comment could be, that the usage of the parmessan or padano in the different sauces adds a bit more salt than one would wish.

The service is good and realy adds to the charme of the restaurant.

If you wish to have good italian food this is certainly a place to visit and try.

“Disappointing visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Visited this restaurant last October on forum recommendations and have to say we were very disappointed. The starters were average and then my sister-in-law was given the totally wrong meal. A couple of the pasta meals were nothing more than ok and were quite small portions. General feeling was it was over-priced for what was provided and we won't bother going again!
