Best pasta in town but expensive

The food is a little bit expensive, but the pasta is great. It's the best in town. Don't overestimate your eating capacity, pasta dishes are very well served. Wines are really expensive there, even for Montevideo.

I have now visited this restaurant on three separate occasions. While their food is good and they have an above average wine list, this is all undone and has been in each occasion, baby poor service. The issue is not that they do not have sufficiently well trained waiters, or that the chefs can't cook, it just seems three are... More

Trying to run away from the common place, we ended up eating at this rather expensive restaurant. Dishes are inspired in the modern contemporary cuisine who gives importance to the looks of dishes. Nothing against it . Be careful not to overestimate your eating capacity We asked as entrée some eggplant dish , which was very good but with all... More

If you love good Pasta ... or trying find an option of Uruguay meat (that is delicious) you will enjoy Panini's. Good options of Wine, several options of dishes (even meat) and good service. I got the Sorrentinos - a very light pasta filled with cheese ...

Very nice atmosphere for business, you can impress a client... But overpriced. Had a very tasty lobster filled ravioli but nothing outstanding. The service was very good.

Food is pricey, no question, but was definitely high quality. Pretentiously expensive wine list, but the biggest cost came in the unexpected extras. Bread was brought to the table and refilled. Little did we know that the five bread sticks would not be on the house. US$15 for 2 baskets of bread sticks? Desserts were pretty special though. I recommend... More

Fresh delicious pasta in a fancy ambiance. I loved the open kitchen behind a glass wall. You can see your choice getting produced from scratch. The service is also excellent, maybe a little pricy.
