Celebrated Valentine's day here, every women recieved a rose. The staff was very polite and efficient. The restautant has an amazing view of the Orange square, which creates a very cozy, comfortable and lively atmosphere. The food was also very delicious, especially the black rice risotto. It is also a really magical walk through old town Marbella to find this... More

Emmanuele Crisci and Hollie Shaw are the most delightful hosts who always make me feel especially welcome in their fantastic restaurant. Il Tartuffo should only be appreciated by true epicureans. The truffle experience is second to none. In season, Emmanuelle gets the best white truffles from Alba and the rest of the time, the black truffles are amazing as well.... More

We have been to Il Tartufo few times in the past, but the last dinner there was the best of it all. We love the place, the location (especially in summer when you can sit outside in the little square), the staff, but most of it, the food. The wagyu beef is a piece of art. I ate it slowly,... More

Over 5 years and each time the food has improved. Previously had dined outside but in early Jan. a table for 5 was needed inside and hence the reason I stick at 4 stars. All the meals were fine, the pasta dishes really excellent, intense flavours, but the upstairs room is not designed for lovely but noisy families from over... More

This is just magical. Great location, amazing food & super staff. I cannot say enough good things about Il Tartufo. We had actually booked into a different very well regarded restaurant but they had a fixed menu and could not really cater for two vegetarians.... I had wanted to try Il Tartufo for ages but hadn't got around to it.... More

This was a special treat for us to go to this restaurant as it had been highly recommend by another restauranteur as being excellent for fine dining Italian food…..but it's speciality is really just truffles, not for everybody!! The location and decor of the restaurant is excellent and we had the anti-paste for 2 to start and then we had... More

We own a place in Marbella since more than 20 years and have had dinner in many good places, Marbella Club, Puente Romano and other great places, some even closed down already. Our new discovery was the Il Tartufo and it was a treat. The location is not easy to find, we actually discovered it because of a mayor renovation... More

The staff need to decide on a language. My brochetta was mistaken for a porchetta so I couldn't eat with my dining partner. Well she didn't want her crab pasta kept warm. When the brochetta of monkfish and prawns arrived it was over cooked, although the risotto was fine. I ought to give them another chance as it's such a... More

We had dinner here last week. Although I agree that the food was tasty, it took them 45min to prepare the entree which was a soup & quinoa salad. Over one hour for the main meals and the most expensive meals we had during the whole holiday. The menue looks fancy but I would not go back there. Few days... More
