This is unlike any Italian restaurant we have come across before. In fact it is considered to be one of Madrid’s most innovative. There is a wide selection of dishes available. But if there is an Italian dish that isn’t on the menu that you would love to try, you only need to ask. As here they are more than happy to cook it for you.
Whilst visiting this restaurant we recommend you try their carpaccio or forno italiano. Also why not sample their delicious genuine buffalo mozzarella salad.
