Ate here three times, each time something different and each meal of high quality. very well cooked pasta dishes, with a special call out for the lasagna. The service was excellent too. Seems to be a very popular choice so best to book.

Had dinner here, adviceable to reserve a table any day in the week. Good athomphere, excellent service and not overpriced. I loved the Ravioli.

I went twice in my last trip to Medellin, food is fantastic , great service and beautiful ambience. I order meat raviolis with bolognese sauce and it was delicious, my second time I order a seafood salad since I was not very hungry and it was really fresh and delicious. I'll go back next time a return to Medallo.

Here's a sampler: the anti pasta plate was a salty prosciutto, some rolled so-called mozzarella (not), the spaghetti pomodoro was pasta with bruschetta on top, and the carbonara left me with a bad cheese aftertaste for an hour. we didn't have the heart to let them know how we felt, but our half full plates probably told the tale. Sure,... More

This is by far one of if not the best Italian restaurant(s) in the Poblado section of Medellín. The service is more highly attentive than most restaurants I've frequented here (and I've been to tons), the food rates very high in the Italian category, and the prices are more reasonable than anyone from New York City would ever expect.

Finally, we have a good to telling restaurant Medellin. The other options were truly disappointing. Most are pretty much like chain Italian restaurants back in Miami. This restaurant however is certainly a step above the others. Although the pastas are certainly not freshly made in-house, sauces are quite nice and close to some of the better restaurants we have back... More

All the waiters stand around the perimeter of the restaurant with their hands behind their back waiting to serve you. Once you make eye contact with them, they come to your table. This establishment sets the bar in Colombia when it comes to service. The caprese I had was delicious, the lasagna was not what I had hoped for and... More

En lo personal, es el mejor restaurante italiano de la ciudad de Medellín. Me gusta mucho comenzar con un carpaccio y de plato fuerte un mixto de solomito con pasta carbonara. Siempre reservo pues el sitio vive lleno. Really good food, with the feel of an American italian restaurant more than an Italian Italian restaurant. For good and bad. Great... More

This is the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to (even better than restaurants in Italy). The pasta was absolutely delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere inviting. I strongly recommend visiting this restaurant if you ever go to Medellin! The only downside is that it's not open on Sunday.

Unequivocally Il Castello is the best Italian in town. Good atmosphere, excellent service, always their owners present, and the best italian dishes in Medellin. If you want pizza don't hesitate it is very good. Reservations should be done one or two days in advance. Prices fair, even for wine.
