“The best Italian restaurant in Nerja, and better prices than the others.”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Well finally I decided to put on a review for this fabulous Italian restaurant. It's my first ever tripadvisor review, but I use the website all the time and it's about time I became part of the community. We have tried out most of the more popular restaurants in Nerja but couldn't believe there wasn't a review for these guys. Which is unfair as the other Italian restaurants on tripadvisor aren't anywhere near as consistently good as Dal Toscano.

The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team (Italian/Spanish couple) and they really know what they are doing. Lovely wine selection, great fresh cooked food and a fantastic price point. I am always torn between the chicken risotto with broad beans (simply stunning), or a Calzone pizza which I ask for with extra salami picante! But the fish and meat dishes are great and I often enjoy a perfectly cooked steak. Pasta fans will be in heaven with a finely tuned selection of delicious dishes.

This is just slightly off the beaten path in Nerja town centre (only just off the top of the main 'shopping street') but it's not at all hard to get to.

Desert wise - the home made tiramisu is superb (perfect balance of delicate flavours), but I often end up going for the home made panacotta (the best one is with fruits of the forest). That is truly sublime. Although the mrs tends to stick with the chocolate fondant as she's a bit of a chocoholic!

Top it off with a lovely brandy or ice cold limoncello and a selection of cheeses and wow what a fantastic evening.

This is a great find, and they are well worth a regular visit. Oh, and in busy season it's a good idea to book as the place gets filled up, both inside and outside...
