“Excellent service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend. The food was excellent, the waitress was very helpful and accommodating. Service was prompt but not rushed. I ordered steak which was cooked exactly as requested with a delicious sauce. At the end of the meal the head chef came out to talk to us also which was a nice touch. We will definitely be returning

“Memorable experience”

I was brought here by my parents for a birthday surprise dinner. The food tasted fantastic and was beautifully presented and service was equally brilliant. Would definitely return! Thank you for a rememberable night!

“A good restaurant, nice people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

We thought this a good Italian that is using good ingredients with skill and care.

We walked in when just one other table occupied but within a half hour by 8pm it was full . Most appeared to have booked and were repeat customers. A nice group of ladies work the front of house, with only one male . You get to meet them all as they all appeared to deal with some aspect of our meal at some stage. No harm you might say but the inevitable is that each in turn asked us how our meal was which when the food is good is merely a bit intrusive. This should be left to the Maître d. If taking plates away after a course okay, cos not a new intervention. But this is more a suggestion. Not a complaint.

We enjoyed the food which was thoughtfully put together. Although specialising in truffle, we were able to skirt this altogether without compromising on choice. Will return and would recommend.

“Looks nice but disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

From the outside restaurant looks nice with terrace and open seating. But service is very inefficient and food is average.

“Recommend trying”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

You are so spoilt for choice in Marbella Old Town but I would def recommend this place.

House red was a good quality, food wise we shared the squid starter and both opted for the steak, we weren't disappointed, it was delicious.

Not bad price, you can pay through the nose here so I'd say it was reasonable.

Give it a go, the service was faultless.
