“Not posh but good food and decent service”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

We were very pleased. Went with a large group. The solomillo was excellent, the aspargus risoto and the pasta was very good. The wine was decent and the right price. So far one of the best places we have been for the food, service was average, but we recommend.

“Not worth the visit”

Basic Italian food, thgis is a chain in Marbella and surroundings and we were poorly impressed by quality of food served.

“Disapointing ”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

To be honest, i am really dissapointed with the service i received. From the moment i entered the restaurant until the moment of paying the bill it was ridiculus and disrespectful, what spoiled the entire "culinary" experience, if it can be called like that.
Just entering the restaurant we were seated at a un-set table, which is not a problem, the problem started while the table was set. The cuttlery and Napkins were literally THROWN on.

After that, the time until the order was actually taken was far too long, and the order taken in a incorrect manner. Infact the waiter seemed to refuse correcting his obvious mistake.
Also two other tables that were seated later than us ( having ordered more complex starters), were served significantly earlier than our table.Disapointing.

The food it self was definitively acceptable, even though nothing special, and for the prices charged neither elaborated enough nor presented how it is to be expected.

Aswell waiting only for the bill passed half an hour...time that i do not have .

Meanwhile waiting for the bill, i had a look around and realized that cleanliness was not taken too serious neither.

In conclusion: The service was, at least for me, disapointing and staff should be trained again in basics of service, like for example how to set a table in front of a guest, positioning of cuttlery, respectful treatment of customers, etc...
The menu it self is very good, offering a nice variety of italian dishes, but the realization and presentation to the customer is not enough for the price-range.
I would not repeat this experience again
