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

The place is good, has a nice atmosphere, and service is really good. The food is ok, nothing out of the extraordinary.... May go back, prices are ok for the place when using Colombian pesos....

Highly recommended for Italian food lovers in the south of Cali. The portions have a good size and the menu is variated.

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere, as families friends and colleagues seem to meet up in big groups, celebrating their birthdays and such. This however makes it crowded with a service which is therefore a bit slow. Good food. And they also sell nice drinks, such as sangria and cocktails and the artisan beer from Colombia which is really nice.

Great italian and local food options, not expensive in a nice area near hospitals and pharmacies. I had a delicious pasta and shrimp and a tangerine juice, desserts are big, apple tart with ice cream, all credit cards accepted. If in a rush not a good option, service can get a bit slow bcause many people come here. Business people,... More
