I have been to good Italian restaurant all over world but none better. I am always shocked at how good the wine is and how little the check is for. It is not inexpensive it is overly fair.

A great italian restaurant for a formal lunch or dinner. Very popular with the locals for it's great food and service. The chocolate volcano is an awesome dessert. The place is not expensive, but the ambience is upscale, so proper informal attire is expected. The place has been renovated, and looks awesome.

We are here on our final night in Medellin. The place was full when we arrived and we waited about 15 minutes for a table. After being sat we ordered some wine and were given some flat bread followed by some more bread. I ordered te fettuccini Provenza and I have to say that it might be one of the... More

I went there not knowing what to expect but they took my order fast and the food was brought to my table before I expected. The price is not bad at all and the find is very nice.

The guide was obviously terribly bored (kept looking at her watch) and rattled her story off like a machinegun, and all in Spanish too.. Such a pity, because the casle and the family that lived here has such an interesting history but none of it was told or explained.

The food at Il Castello is tasty and ok value. The service was good and the decour and atmosphere nice. It wasn't a restaurant that I would consider for special occasions (try Carmen!) but the food (two different pasta dishes) was good and I'd go back there.

we had lunch for 12, most of them brokers so much wine was drunk. I think about 8 really liked the lunch, a couple found there was too much liquid in their pasta (not drained or sauce not sufficiently rendered). I liked mine enough to spend time to review it.

We ate here with 4 people and all of us had a delicious meal. It's in the touristic area and definetely with a visite. Nice entourage, professional and fast waiters. Not the cheapest place but ones in a while you need to treat yourself

There are many places in South America that claim to be Italian, but none really hit the spot for us - except for this one! Everything here is close to perfect: the setting, the chequered table cloth and the excellent selection of pizza and pasta. The best part however: the staff! We were sat at the bar and had a... More
