“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

After a 15 minute search down small streets without visible names, we arrived late for our dinner but were warmly greeted by our host. Warm tasty breads; lovely starters; perfectly prepared mains; delicious desserts. All served professionally and perfectly seasoned. Absolutely wonderful dinner at a very reasonable price.
This month they move next door, which will give their kitchen more room for creation! The only negative? They are in Marbella and not in our neighborhood back at home!

“A real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

This was our second visit to Il Tartufo and we picked it for our wedding anniversary having found it very special the first time round. We were not disappointed. The menu is interesting, imaginative and wonderfully executed and the front of house service is excellent. It is also great value for money. The restaurant, which is small and intimate, was virtually full even on a Monday night and it was obvious that several of the diners were regular customers (we're not surprised!). We learnt that the restaurant is relocating in April to slightly larger premises a couple of doors up with more space for outside seating which should be great. We hope they don't lose the great atmosphere though!

“Just so good......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

A really delightful Restaurant - cosy, friendly and a great experience. We went on a Saturday night ( booking highly recommended ) and it was busy!! The area is small, cosy and compact , but this just adds to the overall experience. The menu is short - again, this is great, as the food is guaranteed to be fresh, plus a daily special. I had both specials Prawns with Taglitelle and the Tiger Sole - my wife had Carpaccio with Truffle and Taglitelle with Truffle - yes, they import fresh Truffles from Italy! The chef/owner is Italian, so you are getting the real thing! and his partner from Scotland looks after you at your table.
Love it love it...... will be back as soon as possible!!!

“Fantastic food, atmospher, service and place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

What a wonderful find. Perfect menu with something for every taste and the special starter and main were fantastic! That Tiger sole was to die for. The owners/staff made us welcome and were there to attend to our every need. Reservation recommended for a Saturday night.
