We were hoping for some authentic italian cuisine but were disappointed. Menu looked promising and i guess the credits go to the photographer and editors. For an insipd soup, salad and a shared pizza we paid around us$ 30 which i guess isnt a lot of money but you can do better for that amount in Medellin.

First of all, I went to the restaurant located in Puerta del Norte Shoping Center....The food was good, but it took some time to receive atention. I guess that may be they have few employees for the people that visit them . Overall experience was good for me.

When shopping in Exito at Laureles, we have lunch at Il Forno and have not been disappointed with any of the dishes we have ordered. They have a reasonable selection of wines and last Wednesday they had a "promotion" - pay for one half bottle, and receive a full bottle of wine! The service has always been cheerful without being...

This place is fabulous. The stuffed tomatoes and the salads here are just amazing. The atmosphere was open and had fresh air with soft music and lighting for a fine dinner dining experience on several occasions. Highly recommended but nor for those on a budget.

The first lady who welcomed us into the restaurant was very nice but after taking our drinks order she switched with another waitress who really was not good at her job! She would not let us order lots of starters and sides at the same time and was rude about this. When the food did arrive she had forgot to... More

Normally I would leave Italian food to the Italians, but this restaurant does not have a problem when it comes to real Italian cuisine! The pasta is really "al dente", and it really uses all the Italians tricks to make the sauces and backery.
