We ate there two nights in a row. The first night one of us had home made pasta and the other chicken with almond sauce. The next night we had the roast pork and the pepper steak. All meals were delicious and the service was good.

My friend and I ate at this restaurant two nights ago and didn't find the food to be great. I had four cheese ravioli and asked that garlic be added to the sauce and I could hardly taste it. My friend had the whole fish that was suppose to be wrapped in a special paper but when it arrived it... More

After having lived almost a year in Italy I can tell you: this spaghetti carbonara was one of the best ones I ve ever eaten. The restaurant is nice, with italian background music, nice service and fantastic food. A good choice if you get hungry in Villa de Leyva!!!

I ate here with a group of people from my work. We each ordered a different plate and each plate was ESPECTACULAR!! The pepper steak, the blue cheese steak, the pesto pizza, and the risotto. We also ordered cannelloni but is was just average. I have rarely eaten at a restaurant where a variety of the food is all delicious.... More

It is deliciously fresh and a deal at 3000 pesos. The catch--it is only available on Thursday evenings and on Friday until they run out, which happens pretty quickly. Get... More
