A top three Medellin Italian restaurant

Located conveniently one block from Parque Lleras Il Castello offers a great selection of Italian fare highlighted by excellent pastas. Décor is trendy modern and clientele tend to be upper crust yet prices are moderate. Great place for a date or a business dinner. Reservations suggested.

This restaurant is one of the only good italian restaurants in the city! The atmosphere is very cozy, the service is good. They also have a little store in the entrance of the restaurant were you can buy their pasta, good wines etc to take home.

A quality experience with great ambience. We had a reservation, arrived early and the tables soon all filled up. It was a happy & unforgettable evening. Someone cares about good service. There were three of us & it was truly outstanding; from the attentiveness of the servers to the wine through the meal itself. to the coffee. Be back ASAP.

This is one of the better Italian restaurants in El Poblado. It can be very busy at weekends. The starter was a very nice Tomato and Mozzarella salad, the Arrabiata sauce on the penne was tasty (but nowhere near as 'picante' as the server warned me of!), the wine was good, but the service was a bit slow. I waited... More

We didn't have a reservation so it is best to book. However, it was early and the manager fitted us in. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff were attentive but unobtrusive. The best however is the food. Absolutely delicious. There were four of us, and we all ordered differently but were equally delighted. The best Italian food... More

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.

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
