I can't believe how good this restaurant is. I visited Cali for the weekend yearning for a great experience. My friend and I were very pleased with the drinks, the food and especially with the outstanding service, like in no other restaurant in Colombia I...have visited. The chef was very accommodating with the substitution of the sauce, the pasta was really al dente to my taste. I had seafood with fettuccine and my companion the lamb with pasta. Cocktails were up to first class, cheers to the bartender. I wish they would have limoncello for digestive, but it did not ruin anything. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. The waiter was very attentive and prompt. I had a lovely eveningMore

Trattoria Italia is an Italian restaurant in the San Antonio district of Cali. The venue is a pleasant building on a corner, with an inviting decor. On a Friday evening the place was quite busy. I ordered a penne with salmon and shrimp with a...light cream sauce ($36 000 COP), along with a couple of Stella Artois ($12 000 each). My companion had a filet with penne and potatoes ($39 000) and a bottle Argentinian Malbec ($65 000). We finished up with a couple of Americanos ($10 000). Service was quite good, especially given how busy the restaurant was. Overall, this is a restaurant well worth visiting if you are in Cali. I would go back, and recommend it to others.More

It has a nice enviorment and great service. Food and coctails are great. We had the beef saussage as an appetizer followed by some really nice pasta and killed it with dessert. We ordered Gin N´Tonics and they where very well done. This place is...great for a romantic meal or family dinner.More

It was a nice dinner. Penne pasta with salmon and shrimp had a good flavor, but sauce made out of packed tomatoe sauce, gave a different taste. Been so cheap in colombia, the cheff should roast them and use as needed. The other dish, gnochies...al mare were good. Bread was scarse and the salad needs more OO and balsamic.More
