Very Italian.

The place has walls like a rocky oven and air conditioning. It's very nice to sit and get a glass of Coca Cola. We had Cuatro Estaciones pizza. It's a small plate but delicious. Portions are small. Delicious. The most delicious, meaty Portobello mushroom. Good place to get vegetarian-Italian.

Food there is very good, nothing pretentious, and the prices are ok. The thing is its location, it is far from everything, I mean from the restaurants districts, which during the day is ok because there are a considerable number of businesses and medical offices around it, but at night nothing happens there, which doesn't invite to visit the area.

The only think that makes me think before going is the lack of parking spaces and a little crowdy at lunch time. Colombians are not used wait to be seat at a restaurante.They have a great coconut lemonade... More

I had almost given up hope of having good pasta in Colombia until I went to the Faro! It has a great atmosphere and decor and the menu is VERY varied - almost too much choice! I had the prawn and salmon ravioli and was very impressed with the quality and flavours. In each ravioli was half salmon and half... More

On one occasion the meal was excellent. The last visit it was only so-so. Will try it again to see how it is.

I popped in here unknowingly with my family my last night in Cali and boy was I happy. Our table ordered a medley of foods including meats pastas and apps. The best thing I tried was my mothers combo plate which had steak, risotto and a Cesar salad.... Mouth watering. I also had a portobello mushroom goat cheese appetizer and... More
