“Excellent food but not cheap”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

We were here on a busy bank holiday lunchtime. They dont offer a menú del día like most of the restaurants on this strip so it is not a bargain. How ever the quality of the fresh pasta and its sauces was very very good. A pizza with mixed wood mushrooms was also very good. The Antipasti mixto too. All the dishes were over 12 € but you pay for quality. Very correct service. All told: 70€

“Average food, poor service”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Before I start, let's set the scene. It's 8:30pm, we enter Brigantino and we are the only customers.
We orde mushroom pasta, tortellini, gnocchi and a margherita pizza. The pasta dishes are brought to our table one at a time and after a couple of minutes we ask where our pizza is and the waiter goes to the kitchen. We can then see the chef making the pizza from scratch. The waiter returns and tells us the pizza will be a couple of minutes and did not bother to apologise. By the tie my daughter's pizza arrives we have almost finished the pasta dishes.
The quality of the food was average. Some of my tagliatelle has stuck together and so was undercooked. Nothing tasted bad, but it was neither outstanding. If you want a good pizza go to Rione Trastevere.

Nicely located near the beach. Food was good. It came very quickly and was reasonably priced. We would go back.

“Best Italian In Spain!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

The caprese salad is divine and the pasta sublime! Male sure you don't miss the desert and by sure to go with an empty belly as the portion sizes are large and absolutely fantastic! Loved it and can only recommend it.
