About the restaurant Trattoria Malatesta

"In the heart of Madrid, near the Plaza Mayor, we find this traditional Italian restaurant in the space of an old tavern from 1900.

Its traditional Italian cuisine stands out for the elaboration of its thin-crust pizzas in the wood-fired oven and the abundance of their risottos and the pasta dishes, as well as their exquisite homemade desserts. It also has a magnificent wine cellar consisting of a selection of the best Italian wines.

Divided into two floors, the area above maintains the original decoration with the brass bottle cellar and mirrors and wall tiles, and in the lower part are the caverns, bookable for groups. With the arrival of good weather guests can also eat and dine on the pleasant terrace next to the Church of San Ginés."

The food was acceptable but the service was disappointing. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were not attended to even though other clients were seated we were told to come back.

This was a very disappointing dining experience. The service was not friendly or efficient. The entrees were bland, although the appetizers were very good. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Good pizza, shame about the staff.mthey open at 20.30 and ar 22.10 they started emptying the shelves behind the bar to wash the bottles and clean the shelves! What a time to choose. Akin to getting the Hoover out. Waitresses also rather surly. Such a shame as the room is atmospheric and the food good.

The reception of the staff wasn't overly friendly. A few more smiles wouldn't go amiss.
The starters were amazing! The pizzas were good, as was the carbonara. However they weren't to the standard of the spinach based starter...
I'd recommend anyone to try the restaurant and come to their own conclusions.

Good pizza and pastarestaurant. Nice atmosfär. They have a lot to do so they haven´t got much time to spend on you, which is ok if you are there for the food and not the service.

Outstanding dinner. My wife had mushroom ravioli & I had a bologna see pizza with a bottle of Montepulciano wine.
Total bill was under $50. FANTASTIC.

Best italian meal I had in Madrid! Service and food was exception. Thanks for making the last meal in Madrid exceptional. The Burrato was excellent and the each entre that the members of my family had was fantastic.

We went here as the reviews were good. Whilst the service was good the food was ok at best, particularly the pizzas were certainly not of a high standard. Plus the toilets did stink. We left disappointed as usually something averaging 4.5 on TA tends to be a great meal, unfortunately not in this case.

Good food, good service.
I was especially surprised by the waiter who recognized my name (written in the online reservation form) when I told it to the waitress at the entrance, without looking in any papers or computer. He had already known which table was reserved for us and immediately let us there. We felt like a really welcome guests.
Tagliatelle a la casa, Beef tagliata and Caprese cake are really for recommendation.

Cosy italian restaurant with kind, helpfull staff and good food! I took the mushroom pasta and shared a burrata as antipasti, everything tasted great and I was full up after the meal. We live next door and will definitely come back for a cosy dinner.
