Stunningly, stunningly bad. Our little girl wanted Italian so we took her to Anema e Core on a Friday evening. Atmosphere was very poor. Miserable, dark room with brown decor and poor lighting. Very subdued even when it started filling up.
All that can be forgiven if the food was ok. The pizza was stodgy but the worst of all...
So to go to Madrid and have an Italian meal is not so crazy. Madrid is not the dinning city that San Sebastián is or even equal to Barcelona. But as with any large metroplex you find all cuisine. This place is a very good ristorante. The porcini risotto was excellent. Roberto, our waiter was also very nice.
