Tapas are wonderful & Spanish cuisine can be extraordinary but sometimes you just need a great bowl of pasta. Menomale was recommended to us by a local with a passion for food and we were delighted by this super casual eatery located near the University.

We started by sharing a simple caprese salad and Margherita pizza and then ordered our own pastas as main courses. Each was delicious, rigatoni amatriciani, spaghetti carbonara, and tagliatelle Bolognese. For desserts 3 Italian classics an affogato, tiramisu and lemon sorbet. A satisfying meal from start to finish.

Service was competent, warm and quick. This is a family friendly spot and considering the quality of the food, a very good value. FYI, it can get a bit loud in the back room of the restaurant with the music volume turned up.

All in all, very glad to have been a guest at this charming neighborhood spot.

They have a lunch menu with two options, 'Leggero' at 9 euros and 'Completo' at 11.50. As I was on my own, I opted for the former although the 'completo' is even better value.

The light option gives a one course choice of any of the dishes on the menu: 3 starters, 3 pastas and 3 pizzas. After a small but delicious aperitif of a sort of cold vegetable tapenade, I chose 'trofie al limone', al dente pasta in a mascarpone and lemon sauce with a glass of primitivo house 'rosso', and finished up with a small strong expresso as good as you would expect in any real Italian restaurant.

If you're looking for authentic Italian food in Madrid, this is the place to go! A good choice of pizza pasta and other dishes. The wines are also fantastic. We had a pleasant time there enjoying Italian food at a decent price. Definitely worth going!

Just a short walk from the touristy Gran Via/Plaza España area, this delightful little Italian restaurant is worth a visit when you want a change from Spanish fare. It has a creative and distinctive menu of northern Italian specialties and delicious, authentic pizzas. Friendly and efficient service is provided by the charming owners, from Florence and Turin. Enjoy a real taste of Italy in the heart of Madrid.
