We took a one day trip from Santiago to Valparaiso and asked our guide to recommend a good seafood restaurant. As it was Monday most of the restaurants she tried to show us were closed, so we accidentally stumbled into this little restaurant in an alley down some steps. It was really one of the best meals we had in... More

We ignored the guy with the menu lurking around inviting us to the restaurant but chose it of our own accord. As a rule I´ve learned to avoid places that have people outside to lure you in, but the guy was clearly out there because the restaurant is somewhat hidden at the bottom of a staircase. All the food was... More

It can be difficult to find an open restaurant in Valparaiso on a Sunday night. This place is tucked a bit out of the way but near Ascensor Conception. The evening was warm enough to sit outside and we had an excellent dinner as an introduction to our first night in town. The food was well prepared, delicious and our... More

The staff is very friendly. The food is a bit pricey but absolutely worth it. A friend and I came here before leaving Valpo (Valparaiso) because we had to taste the food again. The wine is also excellent. We even went to Emiliana to do some tastings! We'll come here again if possible before leaving Chile. Today we had Salmon... More

Il Paparazzo is a stylish restaurant producing excellent food. The seafood, in particular, is excellent. The service is very professional and friendly. The wine list is also good. If I have a slight quibble it was that it seemed more expensive than other, similar places in Valparaiso.

The food was very well prepared and quite tasty. The wine selection was also good and the service absolutely fine. No complaints at all but perhaps a little bit on the expensive side?

Good italian restaurant with excellent pasta. Good thing is opened from lunch time thru midnight. Sometimes is hard to find a place for early dinner. Excellent wine and friendly atmosphere.
