“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We wandered in for lunch. Had the carpaccio, octopus carpaccio, caprese for starters. Wonderfully fresh, lively flavours. Mains were carbinara, pasta alla mare & crab ravioli. Pasta were perfect al dente. The sea foods were so fresh & flavorsome. At desserts the basil sorbet was an amazing fresh taste. Service was friendly, attentive, & helpfully for us, in a good level of English. We had a 2003 chianti, perfect match for our dishes. A tad of madeirisation on opening but not offensive, a light crust thrown evident in the glass at the end. Certainly not spoilt. Total cost including 10% propina was COP370000. We have no problem to recommend AAV it was a lovely meal & experience.

“Italian?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Ok what a waste of time. we waited for a table for 30 min. No one took our order for 20 and drinks after another 20. Finaly got my meal 45 min later. So thats almost 2 hours from the time i arrive to when i get my meal in. However it was not what i ordered, i asked the waitress about it and she just argued with me.

“Best Italian restaurant in Cartagena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I have gone to Adante multiple times and ithas always been superb. Not inexpensive but worth every peso. Make reservations! If you can, sit at the bar and watch the ladies cook in the tiniest kichen I've ever seen.
