I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Trattoria Don Lisander


Trattoria Italiana Don LIsander
Don Lisander's simple interior

Trattoria Don Lisander has been open only for five months and it is already a reference restaurant for Italians in Madrid. Extraordinary pizza!!

Located in Chamartin district at the end of General Perón (Infanta Mercedes 17) next to many well priced shoe shops, what we once called “muestrarios” or “shoe sample shops”.

Name is taken after Alessandro Manzoni’s nickname “Don Lisander” given by its friends and neighbours. Don’t expect fancy new wave decoration, it is a real trattoria like the ones you find all over Italy.


Alberto Carta (coming directly form Como) and his son Stefano are in the kitchen and Gonzalo Vernacci offices as Maitre.

We had this marvellous thin and crispy pizza called fresca, some linguini with tartuffo, (that I still remember, yummy!) and chocolate ice cream as dessert. I have no doubt that I will return many times!!!!
