Wow - great service authentic Italian staff and I even had my first glutenfree Tiramisu ever. The best glutenfree pizza I had for years with an amazingly thin base and crust. Impressive selection of beers - glutenfree Belgian beers were my choice and it was an awesome experience!

Definitely quality Italian ingredients are used here. They have an extensive menu of pastas and pizzas. We had one of that best Margherita pizzas that we have had in a long time. Wine selection is large and fairly priced. 10 minute walk from the LaLatina metro stop.

Every time we get to Madrid (1-2 a year) we stop for a meal at Emma & Julia. This time, the Langostino Carpacchio was great (maybe a little more citrus would do it good!). Spagetti Vongole and Spagetti Langostinos were fantastic, as as the not to miss Pannacotta (maybe a little more vainilla?). We´ll, as usual, be back!

I went alone by a recommendation I received and it worked as I expected. Spaghettis Carbonara were delicious, and watching the maestro pizzero do their work and Danilo the main metre do their craft was really inspiring. Hope you also enjoy a little of Italy in the middle of Spain as I did :)

We were walking down la Cava Baja, looking for something different to eat in the middle of a thousand Tapas bar and were delighted to sense the unique smell of a wood oven. We had to get in and try. We were delighted to taste authentic italian-style pizza in a modern and comfy atmosphere, at a very reasonable price. And,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
