Enjoyed dinner here with my partner. The staff were very welcoming. The food was of a very high standard. The pumpkin ravioli was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

We first visited this restaurant 6 years ago, stumbling across it while exploring the old town, and loved our meal then. Our return visit didn't disappoint, with a small menu the food is very nice including fresh local ingredients and tasty appetisers. The staff were very friendly and compared to some of Marbella's big hitters the price was very good too. Would recommend anyone visiting the Old town explores that bit further to find Il Cantuccio.

Il Cantuccio was by far the best restaurant we visited whilst in Marbella. It's hidden away around a little corner beside the Santa Maria church, in a beautiful old building. The blonde lady who served us was so friendly, and made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our little appetisers of feta and tomato, and spiced chicken and mango salad. We both had pumpkin ravioli in a sage and parmesan sauce, which was absolutely delicious. We shared a lovely bottle of prosecco, then had chocolate torte with white chocolate ice cream. Il Cantuccio was a real treat, peaceful and intimate, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who visits Marbella.
