Very nice and luxurious place

I loved the place, the open/transparent kitchen and the hygiene of bathrooms. The food is always too salty, which I detest because I love to feel the real taste of the food, especially when I'm eating pasta. If you have a newborn baby, be prepared to not have a changing table on bathrooms (very... read more

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

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.
