The only dessert at El Quinto Pino, and a fine ending to the tapas meal at that, is called the Casadiella. A trio of fried anise pillows drizzled with honey and dusted in powdered sugar. Each two-bite nugget is tightly filled with chopped toasted walnuts and served straight out of the fryer. The dessert isn't listed on the menu. You have to ask the waiter, but you'll be mighty glad you did.
