Don Lisander made us fall completely in love, and we must admit we would have never given an opportunity at first sight… but you know, “looks might be deceiving”. Behind a graceless façace and an old-fashioned (still not vintage decoration we found a wonderful and authentic italian trattoria. A restaurant that carried us away to Lago di Como with every bite and every sip… almost like being there, pure happiness.
Everything tastes great, and we loved their pizza tartufo, really thin and crispy, topped with quail eggs and truffle, and tiramisú for dessert. We cannot wait to come back and try every other dish from the menu, including homemade pasta and more than twenty different pizzas. Wines are not remarkable but still fine. The bill won’t hurt: around 25-30€ each but really worth it.
Don’t forget to make a reservation in advance, we came on a Tuesday afternoon and it was really packed. There are tables for two, four and for large groups, but our favorite is the rounded one near the window.
A really nice, humble, honest and authentic restaurant that takes care of all that matters: what is on the plate. Goes directly to our favorites’ list.Don Lisander Calle Infanta Mercedes 17, Madrid [Metro Estrecho (L1)] Reservations: 91 570 92 90 Contact: Facebook & Twitter.
