PIZZERIA - Marbella
RISTORANTE DA PINO PIZZERIA: PIZZERIA DA PINO Review

Saturday, May 6 VTDinner Meeting at RISTORANTE DA PINO PIZZERIA an Italian restaurant located on the beach front, a 10 or 15 minute walk from most VT'ers hotels.
Starters: Tomato Mozzarella salad or Three pastas in a selection of sauces. I chose the Three pastas and it was absolutely delicious.
Main course: Scaloppini with a mushroom sauce or Salmon Cavaliere or Stuffed Aubergines(Eggplants) which was the Vegetarian option. I had the Salmon Cavaliere which was OK but a little too fishy tasting. I prefer the mild taste of our wonderful Canadian Pacific Salmon.
Dessert: Tiramisu
Drinks: Coffee, red & white wine, beer, sodas and water.
Cost per person 27 Euros

RESTAURANTE CHINO HONG KONG: CHINESE

Hans and I ate twice at the RESTAURANTE CHINO HONG KONG. Once by ourself and once when about 20 VT'ers descended upon them all at once. I was quite impressed how they handled us all. We usually order the Menu Del Dia which was a fantastic price of 5,50 Euro.
Choice of soup or Spring Roll. Fried Rice with three delights ( ham, peas and bits of egg ). Choice of Chicken with Almonds ( my favourite ), Sweet and sour Pork and a Beef Dish.
This family-owned restaurant was cheerful and bright and had amazing views over the beach and Meditterannean.

Da Fabio - Marbella

Da Fabio

DA FABIO RISTORANTE ITALIANO: ITALIANO

When Kat, Kristi, Hans and I were looking for someplace to eat, we decided on DA FABIO RISTORANTE ITALIANO as it was nearby the Princesa Playa and we were all in the mood for Italian. Hans had Lasagne Emilian which was 11.40 Euro. He said it was absolutely delicious. I had Spaghetti Bolognese which was 9.80 Euro and was fabulous. A generous bowl of parmesan was provided. One thing I didn't appreciate was the 1.50 Euro cover charge for each of us. Perhaps it was for the dried up bread sticks which we didn't even eat.. Other than that it was a delightful experience.

DA BRUNO SUL MARE RISTORANTE: AWESOME ATMOSPHERE

Carmen and Stace wanted to take me out for dinner for my birthday. As I was in the mood for Italian, we chose DA BRUNO SUL MARE RISTORANTE in Marbella. It was an awesome atmosphere, as we had a tenor singing while we ate. He did a wonderful rendition of "My Way". The staff were very efficient and professional.

Favorite Dish: I had a wonderful Ravioli stuffed with spinach in a delicious meat sauce. Hans had Lasagna which he said was very good. We all had appelstrudel for dessert. All in all it was a wonderful meal and I enjoyed it immensely. Thank you so much Carmen and Stace. Love you guys.
