The sign says Pasta E Vino and the menu is redolent of France or Italy, but the dishes have a definite Chilean flavor. Or bottle of Casa Silva Los Lingues Gran Reserva Carmenere 2010 from Chile's Colchagua Valley went perfectly with duck, seafood, and vegetarian pastas as well as the spaghetti carbonara. The waiter made us think we could speak Spanish. Desert was a delight. It was fun listening to the lovely loud young ladies at the bar, though we could not understand what they were saying.

Basically simple fare as the name implies, but done with flair and some imagination. It would be very difficult to go wrong here. Close your eyes and point at the menu.

I went in a week day for lunch with a friend.
Place is OK, but not impressive, maybe the atmosphere is better at night.
Of course we ate pasta, prices about 18-20 USD.
I guess it's a good restaurant for a couple dinner in a weekend, not an amazing place but good quality italian fresh food.
Make reservations in advance if you're thinking on a Friday or Saturday night.

This restaurant was so good we went back two nights in a row to try other items on the menu. It is in a simple but smart contemporary setting and offers a select menu of classic italian dishes, bur pasta-focussed as the name suggests. Everything is fresh - for example the scallop ravioli wasn't on the menu the second night. The execution and presentation are sophisticated and prices are very reasonable for the quality.There is an extensive choice of South American wines. The service was attentive and responsive - we asked for a break between the entree and main course and they asked us to say when we were ready for the next course. The serves were generous so sadly I can't comment on the dessert. In short, quality italian food, well presented and served.

We loved our meal at Pasta e Vino. We were tired after a long day of traveling, and we thought we'd be eating at our hotel restaurant, but that was closed. But we were so happy to have had this recommendation from the hotel staff.

Since it was late and we were tired, we only ordered an entree a piece: broad bean ravioli with shrimp, and a fettuccine baked in parchment. Both were excellent, as was the friendly service.

If we'd had more days, we would have returned. We loved the family atmosphere as well as the pride they seemed to have in their innovative dishes.
