Madrid isn’t Naples but it has some excellent Italian cuisine to offer. Here are a few places that you can visit that also make one of Italian cuisine’s most exquisite dishes: fresh pasta.
At Ouh Babbo (Calle de Caños del Peral, next to Opera and very close to our hotel in downtown Madrid) you will find a restaurant with plenty of character. Its owner, singer and actor Bruno Squarcia, is the host and offers a traditional Italian music repertoire on Thursdays that cannot be missed. When it comes to the fresh pasta, make sure you try its out-of-menu speciality tartufone de Bruno, made with fresh pasta, grated white truffle and Parmesan cheese. It costs 20 euros but it’s a delicious dish that is well worth ordering.
