Staff friendly and... More

The food here was one of the best Italian meals I've had. The wine wasn't bad either! Highly recommend the starters, we had various ones and all were magnificent

Really decent pizza can be tough to come by in Spain. Vitaliano makes the grade with a wide menu, generous portions and fresh ingredients. There's also pasta and the usual Italian temptations like bruschetta and Caprese salad. It's a big menu but far from an overwhelming one. Everything on it makes sense. We had a large lunch for two adults... More

We were strolling looking for somewhere to eat restaurant looked busy so we decided to try it. Food was not great and not cheap. I had buscetta and puttenesca. Neither had much flavour and puttenesca was very greasy. Definitely nicer places to eat in nerja

We really enjoyed going to this pizzeria Friendly & welcoming venue and staff. Do not miss to visit, you will be welcome. We had a very good lasagne and spaghetti carbonera at a resonable price. Also the wine was very good.

Ate here once during our holiday. It was very busy and servIce was quite slow. Food was okay but nothing special. Definitely had better food in Nerja but certainly wasn't the worst either. Middle of the road, just okay really.
