Description: Open from Monday to Friday (from 13:00 to 16:30 and from 19:00 to 21:30). Offers a wide selection of authentic and delicious Italian food, desserts, wines and coffe. Everyday Maria starts cooking very early in the morning her exquisite recipes, including the fresh pasta sheets for the best lasagnas and the focaccia that accompanies every dish.This cosy local has a table for four people, another one for two, and two bars. Is the ideal place to eat with friends or alone. Maria never stops searching new recipes typical of the best Italian tradition. And every day, you can try the special menu: portion of vegetable quiche, drink and dessert (7.90 €). You can also enjoy the excellent lasagnas (with meat or vegetables).Maria recommends to arrive early in order to have a look at the shop window with all the dishes and desserts of the day.

“Amazing tiny place”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

On reading tripadvisor I found this place for a dinner in Granada. The food was wonderful. The price was as if it was 30 years ago. Best bargain in Europe perhaps. There were two desserts the night we were there and we sampled both. Some of the best cakes ever and I am not a big fan of cake. Maria was wonderful. We came early ( around 8PM) so we were able to sit at a table. There are literally only 2 tables and 2 small counters. Many people were coming and getting the food for takeout. If your not made of Gold, I would highly recommend this place. It would make a great takeout to eat somewhere else too. Thanks Maria!!

“Definitely go here!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

This was a great little restaurant in Granada. We had pasta and dessert and loved it! The owner was very sweet and friendly. Really cool décor too. Get there before 930pm because it closes early.

“Absolutely first class!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went to this restaurant after reading about it on TripAdvisor. ..we were not disappointed. My husband had the lasagne and I had the meatball stuffed with mozzarella and finished in a tomato sauce - both were to die for! For desert we decided to share Maria's white chocolate cake. ..wow!!
The meal was superb and when you consider 2 bottles of water and 4 glasses of fantastic red wine later, well let's just say that 27 euros was an absolute steal!
Home made Italian food at its finest!!!
