We ate at Pasta y Basta on our last night in Marbella (Nueva Andalucia) and that was the best decision and way to end our holiday!

I was looking for an option near our villa rental and found them on TA. Reviews were great and we thought we would give them a try. If I could give them 10 stars, I would!

The owners are very hands on and warmly welcome guests. The pasta is out of this world! My daughter had a simple spaghetti with cream sauce and grated parmesan and her dish had so much flavour with these 3 simple ingredients. In her own words: she was in heaven!

We had the mushroom lasagna and it was also amazing.
Now for desserts: We had the tiramisu and lemon tart and both delivered in presentation, and flavour. They are an adaptation of the classic recipes and tasted (you guessed it) AMAZING.

We are foodies and have eaten at a lot of great highly rated restaurants. This one is at the top of our list and worth a visit and if we were staying longer we would have definitely come back. In fact, we will come back to Marbella just to eat there again.

Thank you Michael for your warm welcome and for opening this restaurant and providing a memorable dining experience at a reasonable price. And thank you to the Chef and his team for their amazing culinary talent.

Don't miss Pasta Y Basta if you are in Marbella. Book 2-3 weeks in advance in the summer to find a table and avoid being disappointed. Booking is easy and can be done online (a great plus, not widely available in restaurants in the area). So you have no excuse for not going!

This is a really good authentic Italian restaurant, with an extensive menu, served in good portions at reasonable prices by an efficient and professional staff.

We've been here twice now and absolutely love it. We got recommended by various people. We don't throw 5 stars around us but this place got it all. Food absolutely fantastic and made with passion. Service is personal, not stiff at all and you feel welcome. Prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is designed in an innovative way and have an good atmosphere. You can go here with trashy jeans if you want a quick pasta or dress up with friends for a 3 course dinner, the atmosphere makes all occasions suitable. You have something unique going on, keep it that way!
