I really enjoy eating here. Maldini’s serves excellent Italian fare with a local twist. The menu is filled with tempting options and it’s hard to choose which dish to actually choose. The vongoli is divine, bruschetta fabulous, fresh fish beautifully prepared and the daily ‘specials’...More

Lovely looking restaurant. Nice pasta, but not the best I have had in Salamanca precinct. However the tiramisu is not to be missed!

Although a Monday night, they were very busy with a big table inside so we were seated outside which was fine, but the completely bare table was a bit odd. They added bread plates and cutlery later but no tablecloth which I thought was odd...More

I suppose I should know better - avoid tourist hotspots if you want a great dinner experience. So we thoroughly deserved what we got - average on all counts. Service (still not sure if this was rude or quirky) meal, everything skated just on or...More
