Outstanding! Go! Go hungry! Very hungry!

Homemade pasta, the tagliatelle was awesome! Chose the seafood dish recommended by the server. It was divine. Everything on the huge platter was perfectly cooked and the sauce was one of the best I've had. My husband had a chicken pasta dish that he is still raving about days later. The service was... read more

The Cevicheria was very cute, right off one of the main squares. The staff inside was very nice and accommodating - while we could speak Spanish, they also offered to translate and communicate in English. The noodles were amazing! They were made fresh: heard around the restaurant were murmurs like,"Wow, I didn't think they had great fresh Italian like this... More

For our final meal in Cartagena before departing we chose Wippy's and we were very glad we did. We were seated promptly and throughout the meal the attention from the waiter was just right. I ordered a chicken breast in a type of putanesca sauce that had wonderful flavoring - I wish I could spic things that well at home.... More

I was looking forward to this meal as they advertise their food as home made pasta and I was desperate for good Italian food. well....it's not good Italian food. the pasta clearly comes from a packet and the tomatoes from a tin. there's real Parmesan but very little of it. it wouldn't be that bad if the prices weren't ridiculously...

We were referred to this restaurant by a tour guide and grabbed a table 10 minutes before it opened. Lucky we did because, in no time, all the tables were taken and there were people lined up waiting to get in. We had ceviche and the food was tasty and fresh. We had a cool breeze blowing down the street... More

I dine out all the time around the world and I have to say this by far the worst experience I have ever encountered dining out. I went here with a friend and came across it walking by. We walked in and were seated immediately. Our waiter seemed nice.... But then once we were sat- it was down hill.. Our... More

This was a great find. Food was delicaious and the owners were anxious to please. Did not need to book a reservation weeks in advance. Not as stuffy as many of the fine restaurants in the old city but food was just as good if not better than most. Pasta was perfect and all the dishes were fresh and delicious.

This place had something for everyone. Great pasta great ceviche and all served with a smile. I will return when I return to... More
