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.

This place is definitely the best Italian restaurant in the city. Both the food and the service is excellent and the prices are very reasonable, specially for the quality and quantity of food you're getting. Make sure you try the ravioli sorrentino or the fettuccine maremonte.

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.
