“Great location strange food combinations”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Such a shame that a good location with good outside space has such poor food combinations. Peaches with meat are weird. And the pasta dishes are well conceived but poorly cooked. I went with 7 friends and we were all disappointed. There are many many Italian restaurants in Bucharest and this is a poor quality one. Choose another!

Sergiu M, Manager at Malagamba, responded to this review, 14 July 2013
Hi James, thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and sorry to hear the food was not to your liking. We agree that we use some unusual food combinations in an effort to offer something different to our customers.(The peach dish you mentioned for example is very popular with Romanians but not so much with foreigners). The restaurant is named after a jazz composer that was also a trend setter in Bucharest and one will find dishes at Malagamba that are not always typically Italian and our chefs often experiment with different recipes again in an effort to offer variety.
The fact that you considered some of the pasta dishes to be poorly cooked is of great concern to us and we would like to know if you pointed this out to the waiter and if so what was the response? Thank you in advance for the feedback.

“So far best quality/price restaurant in Bucharest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

The best ratio quality/ price in the Old city center so far. Delicious food ( salad + pasta) and very descent wine. The service was really high level comparing to my current 4 months experience in Bucharest. Another positive feature, not so crowded than the resy of the places around. Enjoyed it a lot!

“nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

Very nice paste, location is absolutely great! The only thing to complain about might be the service, which was a bit slow because of a nearby table of about 12 people.
