We ate here twice for dinner during a recent stay in Cartagena. The ambiance is quite lovely, the staff very attentive and friendly, and the cuisine wonderfully prepared. One bit of constructive criticism for the operators : wine by the glass was a modest pour for a ridiculous price of 12 dollars a glass (no, it wasn't a Barolo !)...it left us feeling a bit out of sorts (our mistake not to have priced it first, although presumably the modest pour would still have occurred) and took the glow off the evening slightly...on balance, though, a very respectable and enjoyable italian restaurant in the historic centre.

The restaurant is tiny, so make a reservation!
The food was top notch -- best Italian I've had so far in Cartagena. We were with a group and everyone was pleased with their selection. The wine choices are a bit limited but very good, if expensive. I will go again for sure!

We just walked by and found this eclectic little restaurant that has a lot of charm. Limited selection on the menu, but everything we ordered was delicious. The service also was really special..the decor is cozy and unique.

A but pricey buy worth it!!! Ah! And if you are in a romantic outing you both must love garlic ;-)

We were in Cartagena for 3 nights and we went to the restaurant two nights. The pasta is made on site and prepared fresh daily. It was so delicious including the starters, we had the eggplant one night and the caprese salad and octopus the next. The pastas were amazing, any type you get. You really must go if you love fresh Italian food!

My girlfriend and I went in to this little restaurant because the smells coming out of the kitchen were so good we had to go in and try it out, even though we'd planned on heading to one of Cartagena's more prominent restaurants that night. It turned out to be an amazing call--easily one of the best restaurants we've eaten at in Cartagena. I had an octopus carpaccio appetizer that blew me away (the sauce was divine), followed by almost equally fantastic main course of crab-filled ravioli.

The place is also quite adorable. The kitchen is right behind the bar, and we ate at a table in a little balcony just bigger than our table overlooking the staff preparing our meal. It has a cozy feel, like you're in someone's home. Wonderful experience overall.
