Authentic Italian cuisine. Generous portions and good service. We enjoyed our first meal so much that we returned on our 50th wedding anniversary. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. I had the lasagne done as a special. Delicious.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
