“Nice,very friendly”

After a short stroll from the centre, we spotted La Romantica. We liked the outside seating, tables and authentic look, so we sat down outside. 3 amigos, 2 veggies and me had plenty to choose from. Service was good, if a little too laid back at times. Wifii available. A del chef salad, mamoth mushroom pizza, hearty ravioli and "the best veggie lasagne in the world" later, we raised our wine glasses full of house wine with smiles on our faces. Great meal to end a fabulous break.

“Last night make it memorable ”

There are no outside tables for this restaurant but inside there is lots of homemade pasta, heavy on the cheese and cream. There are also great salads that, at E10 each, are made for sharing. We did not try the pizza but it was a popular choice among the other diners.
We ate here twice. First time was a weekday lunch in an almost empty restaurant. Second time was a Saturday and the place was filled with Spanish families.
The restaurant is just down the street from the Cervantes Theater.

“Homemade Italian down the street from Teatro Cervantes”

A great place for simple, quality Italian food. All is freshly prepared, our thin crust pizza was delicious. The place is full on the weekends of Spaniards, who I imagine have been going there for years. It's a little bit of old Malaga with an Italian twist!

Great Italian Restaurant

Stumbled on this place by accident, so pleased we did. Food is very good, service excellent and prices cheap. Pizzas are nice and would recommend the lasagne, which was oven baked in a fabulous sauce. Liked it so much we returned the following evening. Customers were primarily locals and looked to be enjoying as much as we did.

“Good traditional Italian”

Nice italian food. It is classical restaurant, many years opened.
You can eat pizza or pasta. I like the ambient, it is quiet.
