“Good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend herd about this place from other backpackers and we ate there twice.

The food is nothing like Italy, but let's don't forget that we are in La Pas. The food is relatively good, fresh and by a reasonable price. It is a nice place to eat a nice dinner if you wouldn't expect too much.

“Decor of a Chinese restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Pizza for some reason is pretty expensive here. My friends were craving pizza so we went. Not value for money and there´s plenty of better food options on the same street.

“Food poisoning”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I ate here last week and she got violent food poisoning from the chicken risotto and had to go on anti-biotics to kill the infection. 2 days ago we met some other travelers who ate the same meal at about the same time as us and got food poisoning too.

“Poor service but decent Italian for La Paz”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Went here a few times and they really need to hire more staff to accommodate their customers. Service appears to be slow due to waiters and waitresses not being being able to prioritise tasks.

There's a lack of menus to distribute around which then leads to multiple visits to each table to sort out orders. One waitress was unable to multitask and tell me what the dessert of the day was while she was washing dirty glasses. You can see them pop out to buy drinks as well!

Otherwise we were really happy with the kitchen as they handled the orders of nine people at once really well. Friends really recommended the osso bucco but not the accompanying risotto which looked like a plain rice cake (unsure why the risotto reviews are so good below?)

“Good food, average service, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I had a 3-course menu of the day for 30 Bs. The salad buffet was quite poor, the starter vegetable soup was basic but yummy, vegetarian lasagne had lots of veggies (yay!) and the dessert was basic vanilla ice cream. They also have an ice cream parlour, so it's weird I couldn't choose between flavours (would have wanted a sorbet and not a milk-based ice cream due to allergy). So the menu is good value for money when you tire of the local super-cheap-always-deep-fried food. Service was a bit hasty, the waitress was running around although there were very few customers.
The rest of the dishes are 40-50 Bs so the normal price for this standard of a restaurant.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this place.
