The decor and ambiance combines the atmosphere of the old town with the spirit of Italy. The Italian inspired menu delivered a great meal and the service was friendly and attentive, live music played from the internal balcony adds to the attraction.
We were staying at the house next door and decided 30 minutes before to visit the restaurant based on reviews we read. The staff could not be more accommodating for such a large group. The food, the bread, the apps, the wine and the drinks...were all amazing. So many selections and if you like fresh homemade pastas and sauces you must stop here on your visit.More
After reading the reviews our family was excited for an authentic Italian experience as we have lived in Rome & visited Italy frequently. My husband has also lived there for 13 years. This was our last night & unfortunately was our least favorite of 3...dinners in Cartagena. We were greeted with little enthusiasm and ushered to a room upstairs with one other occupied table. The server gave us Spanish only menus even though she understood we all weren’t Spanish speakers & seemed annoyed that she needed to get the English version. The wine selection was limited & our appetizer choice wasn’t available...there was only one other table occupied in the restaurant from opening, so it wasn’t a matter of running out.
The two appetizers we settled on were delicious & our pasta mains were good for the most part. Unfortunately with the air conditioning blasting on our food my carbonara which is already difficult to keep hot was cold after a couple of bites. The service was so, so. The atmosphere was non existent. The owner seemed more interested in the only other table occupied in our section. We couldn’t wait for it to be over. Maybe it didn’t help that the previous night we had an amazing experience at a Cuban restaurant with a live band. I guess our expectations from previous reviews were too high.More
A truly excellent restaurant - very nice atmosphere and outstanding food. The waitress serving us was extremely kind an attentive but for some reason the food was very slow coming. We were in the room upstairs so were not aware of how full the restaurant...was, which my have explained the long wait which was the only disappointment as everything else was really excellent. Would definitely go back again.More
Why this restaurant ranks so low is difficult to understand. The place is cozy. The food is authentic Italian. The service is impeccable and it has great air conditioning.
Good ravioli and pasta dishes. You will not be disappointed.
Went here for last dinner in Cartagena with the family. From the street, which by it self aint much action, the restaurant doesnt look much for the world. BUT the food and wines are amazing! All of the family ordered different types of pasta, and...we loved them all!More
We came here because a friend recommended it and she was spot on. From the moment we took the menu in our hands we traveled back to our vacations in Italy the two years back. And when the food came it was amazing, we could...just recall the smells flavors and textures. We had the beef capaccio for Antipasto and the seafood tagliatelle and spinach ravioli as main course. We had an early dinner so we where the first on the scene, obviously the service was excellent. Must try it out if you are in CartagenaMore
Stucked in Cartagena for 10 days because of shipping problems so had the time to try a lot of restaurants ! This one was our best pick : fine cuisine , good wine, very good service and good location. Very fine Italian restaurant with the...greatest Colombian ingredients. Not a pizza place - superb food. Really recommended !More
