Many times a review is greatly effected by your mood.

My wife and i wandered in on our first full day in Cartagena. It concerned us that we were only guests, but shortly afterwards two other couples came in.

We had a very nice time. We are not food snobs or even good critics, so take the review just from our experience.

We had the bruschetta and the Fine Erbe Pollo, which was enough food for us, even though portions are not large by comparison to the states. About normal for Europe, in comparison. Cost with drinks and tip was 71 mil COP. Probably a little high for level of food, but not much.

I told the waiter at the end that it was all good, and he really seemed appreciative.

The menu and the name are italians , but neither the cook , nor the ingredients have much to do with Italy.
If you order a Caprese salad, they will bring you slices of squared Mozzarella , which have as much taste as industrial Gouda, on top of tomatoes which have never seen the sun ,the whole thing bathing in an oily sauce .
The piña colada is clearly better and more aligned with one's expectation.
The look inside is not especially attractive and the electric wiring is a bit worrying , but this is not unique .

Not only the service was terrible, the waiters rude and the a/c deficient, the food was rotten!!!! On top of everything, one of the waiters spill a soda an didnt even offer to replace it. Too expensive for a horrible food and even a worst service!
