Found this restaurant based on reviews in Tripadvisor and was not dissappointed at all. Some of the reviews seem to have suggested that it had changed ownership which is not true the owners have been there for over 3 years having moved from London. They are a true Italian family from Sardinia and the food shows that. We had a superb meal, yes the service is not fast but this is because the food is made with care and love using only fresh ingredients. When on vacation you don't want to be rushed The waiting staff are all great and include the wife, of the husband and wife owning duo. Her husband works in the kitchen and on the pizza oven but still pops out to see his customers great personal touch

Will certainly be returning we visited twice during our week in Marbella

Living in Marbella we are always on the look out for new restaurants and Stuzzikini is a real gem. Firstly the owners and staff are really friendly and helpful. Then there's the food... Delicious! My sons tell me that the pizzas are the best in the world... now this may be an exaggeration, but they really are very very scrumptious. The menu may be small, but it is perfectly formed,..... and yes...you may have to wait a little for the food, but that's because it's prepared to order and with loving care! The prices are also reasonable for Marbella, so what's not to like?
The only thing I have to watch about going to Stuzzikini... is my waistline!

We visited the restaurant 2 years ago because of high rating on Tripadviser. At that time the 4½ star was fine.
It seems that the restaurant has change owner and chef de cuisine.
The menu card advice the visitors about the waiting time is from 10 to 20 minutes for a meal, but in practise it is the double.
As a starter we shared a 'Caponada'. It was fast delivered and very tasty. We should have ordered one each.
The menu card is very limited. Our main course was 'Risoto' and pasta (small round balls) with seafood.
The risoto is not worth to mention, but the pasta with seafood was fine and tasty.
Finally we ordered strudel as desert, but after half an hour waiting we cancelled it.

We had a lovely meal here last week whilst visiting Marbella- it is definitely worth locating through the maze of streets which Marbella Old Town is. We got a seat outside and the quiet location away from the busier streets makes this even more enjoyable. Service was excellent and all staff were very attentive and friendly. My partner had the caponata for starter and I had the caprese salad- both very tasty. The canapes served beforehand were also delicious- roasted onions, fresh focaccia with anchovies, breads etc.We both had pizzas for main course which were both excellent followed by coffees- no room for dessert! The wine was good also although we were having a quiet night and therefore just ordering by the glass. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This is such a lovely restaurant with excellent food. Not a large menu but in my opinion this is always a good sign at a restaurant! Some dishes take 10-15 minutes as everything is made to order. The olive oil is amazing too!!! Great value and food I ill definitely be visiting again and recommending to friend & family thank you stuzzikini
