Great pizza and lemonade

We had a pizza and lemonade at this place! Both very lovely! The owner is really nice and service-minded. Very nice setting and the car parked right outside is beautiful!

I was surprised to see the poor reviews for this place, but then I saw they were from 4+ years ago - must've changed. This is just a super cute little cafe with both indoor and outdoor seating. My husband and I had two coffees and a couple empanadas, I remember the prices seeming reasonable (for Colonia - which is... More

Visited Colonia today, and while walking the streets, we stopped here to kick our feet up for a few minutes. The owner was VERY nice and welcoming. The outside seating was right under a large tree, so in other words, great. He didn't bother us or try to "sell" us on anything. Just let us order what we wanted, and... More

What a perfect little place in the world. Absolutely magical. The proprietor was so kind. We enjoyed a small bite and a drink (empanadas / Pilsen) as well as a taste of the owner's sourced Limoncello. Did not want to wake from the dream. Hope to visit again soon.

Excellent empanadas, fresh lemonade and delicious "mate" (tea). Tourists need to understand the places prior to entering. Il Piu is not a five star cafe! Fists, it is simple but charming. Second, if you can see only one person attending, you need to wait your turn. If you really want to feel the atmosphere of Colonia del Sacramento and have... More

Looks like a nice and quirky small cafe, but it is a full blown tourist trap - exorbitant prices, and poor quality and service to boot. Two coffees and a small dry bun with ham and cheese USD20+! Menu prices are high - Uruguay$120 for a double coffee, but if you pay with any other currency - watch out for... More

We stopped here for a quick ice cream. It is unbelievably overpriced, not particularly good and service is icier than the ice cream itself. It really looks like someone had a house and decided to rip off some tourists. Note: I did not have a meal here so this is not a comment about it.
