It serves the purpose of going out for a good pizza very well.

Really lovely owner, nice atmosphere and with window seats upstairs. Pizza is better than most that you will find in Colombia (nice and thin!) and will cost you a lot less than in El Poblado. Still, not a restaurant to blow you away!

This was the best pizza we ate during our travels in South America, and so cheap! The staff were friendly and the restaurant is well located.

I am sorry to say that our visit to this restaurant was very disappointing. Now maybe because I spent 20 years living in Manhattan and maybe because I visit Italy once a year I am a bit of a food snob. All that being said I visited this place 2 years ago and thought it was good. And it is... More

Pizzas, tiramisu, and prices for food and drinks were awesome, the real italian style pizza had a thin and crusty dough, simply delicious...! Staff was friendly, but somehow chaotic and unorganized, the plates arrived with too much time from the first to the last person... when some were finished for a while, the others started eating.... Pasta plates were not... More

Looking for somewhere in Medellin with great food and at a low cost... Don't miss this! My husband and I don't like to re-visit places when we travel and live by the theory of trying something new all the time. No way! We will be back here every night we are here. Prosciutto pizza and lasagne is what we shared!... More

Maybe it's just that I don't like Colombian style pizza, but then neither would the Italians. This place is popular with the lower budget folks around Laureles, and the pizza is OK.

This is THE place to have authentic Italian-style pizza in Medellín. No wonder it´s always busy! The staff is not overly friendly, but hey, the food is great and the price is OK. It´s my favorite restaurant in Medellín!

Prices went up, service went down. As uncomfortable as ever. Apparently the chef opened a restaurant on his own (All´incontro) a few blocks away, near Mondongo´s.

Stopped by during the week and the upstairs was closed so the 5 of us sat outside in the front. We ordered 4 pies for 5 of us and we finished every bit of it. Good service at a fair price. I try to visit every time I am in town at least once.
