The restaurant looks inviting, the waitresses are very pleasant but the chef needs taking to one side and advising that TOO Much Salt is NOT good. Our starters were prawn tartar and veal rolls filled with cream cheese and topped with finely sliced red onion and water cress, what a great start. Sadly our pasta main meals were so salty we could not taste the lobster and prawns in our dishes. If you do eat here, best to say you are on a LOW salt diet! Perhaps other main dishes were OK? Take care!

Go there if you ar tired of the traditional spanish food.

A must have is the carpaccio of tenderloin

the fresh ravioli of osso bucco with barolo sauce

Vitello tonnato

and the grapefruit salat with rucola and mozzarella.

Before the starters they come with a little appetizer which was smoked cheese with fresh hearbs and homemade pate
The only minus i would give that they dont have a good glass of redwine only bottels and No champagne by glass only cava and spumante and this good restaurant really deserve to offer a good glass of champagne and redwine

We have been there 3 times and was never dissapointed

This is no pizza parlour, this is fine italian dining. Excellent food, starters, mains and desserts. It was so good we decided to eat there again the next night, but it was closed, (Sunday), much disappointment. We will be back to Malaga later this year and we will definitely eat here. Lovely service, such nice staff, with an upmarket feel, but not an upmarket price. Excellent. Good location in the old town. I believe it is part of the Gorki restaurant chain, must be the top end.

We enjoyed our meal here, as a previous reviewer said, it was nice break from spanish fayre for a night. We both had "Costrini" to start, which was a bruschetta with alternate ham and tomato topping in olive oil. We had tagliatelle and ravioli for mains which was just what we were in the mood for. It was the only restaurant we'd been to though in the week we were in Malaga that didn't present an aperitif with the bill afterwards. We'd been undercharged on the first draft of the bill we were presented with, and we pointed this out to the maitre'd. We thought for our honesty that was worth a thankyou, and perhaps a little shot of Malaga sweet wine, none of which was forthcoming, so that was slightly disappointing.

We stumbled on this place after growing tired of the local Spanish cuisine. It was so fantastic we went back the following night!

The spag bol is fab, as is the veal - finish off with the panna cotta or Lingote (Spanish for Ingot which is a gorgeous chocolate dish).

Local buskers stroll by playing everything from guitars to accordions to saxophones which are a delightful accompaniment to the meal.

The staff are friendly and helpful too.
