Great Setting, poor service

Great setting with a nice, sophisticated feel. Service not great but very good Italian food from an enormous menu. We enjoyed it and it would have been fantastic had the service been reasonable (waiters non existent most of the time and ours began talking to someone else when taking our order).

Took TWO hours to get the main course. After complaining and asking for the bill they finally brought it but it was too late (11:00pm). So we left disappointed, hungry and upset. When asked the GM if she knew about TripAdvisor, she had no clue. No wonder why??????? Do not go there!!!!! There are hundreds of amazing restos in Cali.... More

Food was average. Service slow and the prices did in no way match the experience (way over priced). We came here on a Sunday night and it seemed like the employees would rather be at home. Salat was pure lettuce and coconut juice pure water. Grilled seafood plate was not grilled but seafood swimming in sauces and cost 140.000 pesos!... More

Yes folks . . . my husband & I agreed that we received THE ABSOLUTE BEST FOOD EVER at a restaurant in Cali. I ordered the Lasagna Del Fruto & my husband ordered some sort of beef w/spaghetti meal. That beef & the sauce were just amazing & the meat just melted in your mouth. My Lasagna was FULL of... More

This is a must see place if you are in Cali!! The "lulada" is amazing and the ambiance is great. I was not to thrilled with the food but the service made up for that. If you are going to Cali don't miss out on this place.

Nice ambience with live music, salsa and place for dancing. Seems like you are dining on a spanish patio. Great food, fair wine list- but with the warm weather beer is your preferred choice.

This place is incredibly relaxing for family and friends. I recommend going in the evenings to catch dinner and on weekends they have live music. Most seating is outdoors and during christmas seson this is a must stop on a weekend.

This restaurant is located in the Granada district and provides a lot of outdoor dining. The atmosphere is great and the food, while good, is not spectacular.

We had a nice dinner there with a couple of friends and our 9 years old son. Portions and taste really good, but the best was margaritas and happy relaxing atmosphere. One of the best I knew. Enjoy
