The place has nice atmosphere, is always very busy, so is better to arrive not later than 7-8pm. Antipasti, pizza and pastas are very good. They are closed on Sundays !!

The place is always packed but we know the owner and a couple of waiters so they always come through with a table quickly. The focaccia is delicious and the daily specials are usually good. Great atmosphere. A must place to check if you are in Caracas.

This place is very well located at Las Mercedes area. Service is quite good.. We know several waiters and "El Ninio" maitre is very good... He know many people and what tastes we have.. Recommends and makes sure the kitchen delivers. This place is not to be missed ... Lot's of locals and it is most of the time full...... More

Trattoria atmosphere - busy, frenetic, atmospheric. Open kitchen, great pizza and anti pasta. Very popular so arrive early (before the doors open @ 7pm) to get a seat otherwise you could be waiting at the bar awhile. Don't be fooled by the exterior (which is somewhat unfetching) the inside is far more welcoming.

This is a small Italian restaurant, the food is pretty nice, pasta pizza fish, because is so small is always crowed so if you don't like noise and a lot of people this isn't for you they have a valet parking not so good, on the best side the deserts are amazing

La Montanara is located in las Mercedes area of Caracas (near Tamanaco hotel) and serves very good Italian food. Pizzas are so good that I often go just for them. They offer a great variety of pasta dishes which are wonderful. The place is very noisy and it's very difficult to carry out a conversation so I wouldn't recommend it... More
