Visit Carbona two times during our stay in Estepona. We tried different pasta courses. All of them was home made al denté . Perfect. Also tried pizza one day, but not satisfied. Go for pasta.

Do not miss this. We got excellent pasta and dessert. Let the chef advise what to eat, he knows his kitchen and cooks authentic italian food. I was recommended by the chef a pasta dish with spinach, ricotta, tomato and basil.

All of the pastas are handmade, a real taste of Italy! We ordered Italian bacon mushroom fettuccini followed by tomato sauce gnocchi. And it was to die for! The chef/owner took the best of us, recommended us what to pick considering our taste. From the...More
