After having lived almost a year in Italy I can tell you: this spaghetti carbonara was one of the best ones I ve ever eaten. The restaurant is nice, with italian background music, nice service and fantastic food. A good choice if you get hungry in Villa de Leyva!!!

I ate here with a group of people from my work. We each ordered a different plate and each plate was ESPECTACULAR!! The pepper steak, the blue cheese steak, the pesto pizza, and the risotto. We also ordered cannelloni but is was just average. I have rarely eaten at a restaurant where a variety of the food is all delicious.... More

I haven't eaten here but a friend recommended the bread they sell. It is excellent and very popular among the locals.They have seven grain, baguettes, rye bread and whole wheat. It is deliciously fresh and a deal at 3000 pesos. The catch--it is only available on Thursday evenings and on Friday until they run out, which happens pretty quickly. Get... More

This Italian restaurant has some nice wines on offer, and a good selection of dinners. I was not so impressed by the food, but it wasn't at all bad. My spaghetti bolognese was yummy but the portion was tiny. My girlfriends spinach and cheese tortellini was decent, but not great, and again small portion. What saved the experience was the... More

Some relatives recommended this restaurant as was of their favorites in Villa de Leyva. It is not only inviting and cozy, but the food was simply amazing. Everything from the antipasti, to the pasta, to the main courses. One of us ordered the chicken lasagna, one the peppered beef, one the chicken with blue cheese sauce and it was all... More

For Italian food in the middle of Colombia, this was decent fare. The menu, consisting mostly pizza's and pastas, was largely cooked to order. Service was relaxed in this informal setting. While we would not rush to return to this eatery, we did not see more tempting alternatives in this touristy town.
