This is a very small kitchen with a few tables, where the owner spends the day preparing homemade italian food for take away or sitting in. The atmosphere of the place and her presence are very special.

Get here early so that Maria doesn't run out of food. The food is not gourmet but it is just good wholesome food served with a smile. The tiramisu is amongst the best I have eaten. When we got here she only had three things left but her lasagna was very good. She is also a marketer par excellence. Is... More

Our family of four visited Maria's little restaurant for dinner the other night and were in for a treat - amazing meatballs and the most delicious home cooked Lasagna ever (beef for our little girl and the vegetarian for me and my husband). We are actually sad that we may never have such an amazing Lasagna again unless we visit... More

The food was with no exception, the best Italian food I have tried in my life. It really was like how my grandmother used to cook. Same authentic feeling!! Ask for the arencini, and she will make your day!

I had the lasagna homoverde ( with spinach, zucchini, mushrooms, Parmesan and roleggio). It was fantastic and different than any other lasagne I've had. It had a delicious blend of flavors and consistency, kind of like a blend between a quiche and the kind of lasagna I had been used to. The noodles are blended more into the dish and... More

A great and cosy little restaurant in the heart of Granada. We took the three different lasagnes that were and they where all amazing in their own way. The woman who runs it all is super charming and serves it all with the love of a mother. The desserts where very good as well all of them we tried. I... More

The food is great and the service is fast. They have amazing home made cakes.Try the meat lasagna and the tiramisu. We were four (two adults and two kids) and we loved it. The price is good.

Orange cake was pretty good. Not the best desert ever but good. I wouldn't go out of my way for the orange cake alone but to be fair that's all I had.
