If you’re looking for real Italian, this is it. You cannot get any better than the homemade cuisine served at this cozy eatery located in the heart of Marbella’s old town. Stuzzikini offers a unique menu comprising of mainly Sardinian dishes with some interesting Piedmontese favorites like the raviolini del plin – a beef ragout ravioli served in a delicate beef reduction made with butter, sage and aged Parmesan.
The bucatini carbonara here is the real deal, no cream, just fresh eggs and a generous touch of pork cheek bits that give it a slight saltiness and crunch – divine! Appetizers like the Fregula Sarda – clams and mussels with minute pasta balls in a saffron garlic and white wine reduction or another Piedmontese favorite -vitello tonnato – thin veal slices smothered in a tuna and mayo sauce were absolute pleasers.
Aside from a great wine list, the desert options were varied and light. Just like everything else on the menu, the final touches to our meal were all homemade: from the rich yet light tiramisu, the creamy ginger panna cotta with citrus coulis to the tiny cream filled profiteroles covered in melted chocolate. If you want to be in for a true Italian treat, Stuzzikini is it!
