Situated two blocks south of the wonderful Hotel Orfila and between the Colon and Alonso Martinez Metro stops, this small trattoria with a young, vibrant vibe is a neighborhood gem. Food was simple, yet prepared perfectly. Service was warm, inviting and unrushed (in a good way). Oh, and the value was exceptional. Highly recommended.

dinner with friends, 3rd time, staff seemed overloaded as in "today is my first day at work".
very nice food and pasta and spritz as usual but lack of professionals can ruin a nice place. i missed the sicilian hospitality and touch this time. we had to ask for bread more than 3 times (yes, i like the tapenade with bread) and were answered without a smile. that's not the tavernetta. a pretty face not always means a good professional.

A little italian gem in a lovely calm part of madrid. The food here is amazing (the menu is not very extensive) but everything tastes wonderful! Simple dishes like spaghetti with meatballs is mouthwatering. They even served a couscous with duck and it was very nice. The staff is extremely friendly, and it is not as expensive as you may think. Definitely recommended.

I like La Tavernetta as it is not the typical Italian restaurant round the corner with the regular menu but here you can try a different Italian cuisine. Their pisto de berenjenas a la siciliana or (Caponata di melanzane) is delicious and their pastas are original and excellent served as well. They also have some typical Sardinian cheeses they import themselves and good wines. This is a great place to go with a friend or with your brother or sister, make sure to reserve if you go in the weekend. Its kind of small so not handy with a big crowd.

It is a small Italian restaurant with excellent food. The offer outside the menu are incredible but in the menu you can find really good and interesting option

The cannoli are fantastic, one of the best I have ever tried
