Description: The history of piadina has ancient origins and is thought to date back to the Etruscan period, who prepared a sort of "piada" with cereals used as a kind of bread. The Romans made ​​their own this recipe that was consumed in the most refined houses. The etymology of the word "piadina" is uncertain; many think the term "piada" (pie, pieda, pida) was borrowed from the Greek word for focaccia. Others think the term was borrowed from other languages because of the large use of similar foods throughout the Eastern Roman Empire. The first written evidence of Piadina dates back to 1371, by Cardinal Anglico, who for the first time gave the recipe of the bread of the people of Romagna: "It is made with wheat flour moistened with water and flavoured with salt. It is then kneaded with milk as well, and also a little lard." The fame of piadina starts in the 50s when the people in Romagna began to build small kiosks in the streets, that sell the piadina filled with ham, cheese and rucola.

My sister and I enjoyed the homemade pasta--very,very good. However, the highlight was the tiramisu! The owner's grandmother's recipe. I wish we would have had time to go back for seconds. My well-traveled sister said it was the best she's had anywhere!

The site is very great, is on a busy street and ambient, a few steps from the beach. We ordered a nice typical Italian wine and the famous piada: a folded pizza, many different ingredients and it is best if you dont want any ingredient, they arent opposed like as in others restaurants that puts you objections.... 
The food is homemade and is quick to be served. Above all is the good price. 
The staff will advise and are very nice.

Visited this Italian last night and in Spain this is an Italian Restaurant run by real Italians with a real Italian menu and real Italian food and all three were excellent.
So if you like Italian food as it should be served and you are in Marbella just go

Enjoyed a lovely dinner here. Food was fresh, tasty and well presented. Piadas, which we had never had before, were very good and surprisingly light. Friendly, helpful service. Will definitely return.
