The food was really good, the personnel was very well informed about gluten free meals, nice service. The disadvantage of this restaurant was the very small portions. The salad was tiny and the pizza was for 1 person!

It's unusual for a restaurant to know and care so much about the ingredients they're using that the diner can relax safe in the knowledge that their food intolerances or dietary preferences will be will be catered for, but Piccolino della Farfalla is that rare beast. We were lucky enough to happen upon this restaurant on our first night in... More

Fantastic meal for an unbeatable price in the heart of Madrid. I absolutely love this place. The food is a mix of Argentinian and Italian and the pizzas are out of this world. I went with my aunt who is a vegetarian and the array of veggie options was amazing. Highly recommended.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
