I knew this restaurant many years ago on a traditional corner on La Aguada, a busy neighborhood near Montevideo´s train station and harbour. It was very famous for its excellent food and typical "old times atmosphere". Some years ago they moved to a much residential and elegant place, in Punta Carretas; we just went there for dinner with a couple... More

This restaurant has the best pasta in town!! It tasted heavenly!! The location is beautiful and we felt at home!! I had spinach and cheese malfati which was perfect!! Awesome wine, good food, good place. Would say the waiters need to be more polite. Definitely go there for pasta, you wont regret!!

Fantastic service but given the price, food was not commensurate with price. Service was fantastic. We also asked for a small green salad and while not referred on the menu, one is available. We had pesto sauce with spaghetti and ragu over macaroni. Main course were just OK. As a reference point, we spent $80 for two bowls of spaghetti.... More

Just went yesterday and I fell in love with the place...besides the atmosphere the food is great.....I had lamb ribs with quinoa risotto (to die for!) and then for dessert they made us a special which consisted on some local peach (with an amazing flavor) with sabayon and ice cream and honey decoration...everything was perfect...great time in Montevideo..worth every penny

Great ambiance, the restaurant is furnished and decorated with great taste. I was in for some fish, and it turned out that the only choice was salmon (two items I had chosen were not available as they "had not yet printed the new menus"). It was just a slice of roasted salmon, slightly overcooked, over a rather nice aubergine cooked... More

Delicious food for a fair price. There were only locals when we went there and it felt very nice being in a place where tourists usually don't go. The menu is very interesting with many choices, including the wine menu. It's a little expensive but worth. It seems fair for what it delivers.

We were there in 6 people. Ordered 4 plates after the entries. All of them were really tasty. If you like Italian food this is definitely a place to go. Price is reasonable tough not that cheap.

It is a very nice, small and tasty italian restaurant in Punta Carreras. Service also very friendly and helpful. Nice couvert and a wonderful cannelloni.

We were recommended this restaurant from our hotel. In a great neighborhood with many cafes and restaurants with lots of outside seating. We had a nice house wine and really nice Italian diners. Can't quite remember what we ordered being nearly a month ago, but we both remarked how delicious it was. Desert was great. The service was excellent, atmosphere... More

Good food, starters are excellent, price is fair. This restaurant is at a corner, near Francis and Viejo y Querido. Service may seem unattentive, but I didn´t wait a lot to be served. Tips for the waiters can´t be included if you pay your bill with a credit card, so have enough uruguayan pesos to honour the service.
