Small place with excellent food, Italian but adapted to the local ingredients. A reservation will be needed for dinner. Not to be missed.

This restaurant is extremely tiny/cramped. The staff make you feel rushed. The food was very mediocre. The wait staff nodded their heads in agreement when we ordered, but what was brought to us eventually (after a very long wait), was wrong. There are many other much better restaurants in Cartagena.

Let's suppose you want to have an excellent meal without making a big production of it... this is the place! It's a smallish Italian restaurant with very tasty food. The staff is very friendly and accommodating --- I'm vegan and went there twice in a week and had different dishes, the second time they made me fresh vegan raviolis. As an appetizer, get the Insalata Caprese,(I believe they called it -- although it included grilled, roasted veggies, not just tomatoes). Super tasty!

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!
