I ate one of mixto's options and the combination and freshness of food was great. The deserves, milkshakes, juices and cafes comes from El Café de Todo Fresa, so they're delicious!

“Great little Italian , excellent customer service!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We where staying in the Ibis hotel and walked over to find this nice little eaterie.
There are a few more places to eat agacent to here but we fancied pasta. It is a safe and nice environment, secruity too.
The waiter was very polite and tried his best to speak english to us as we are not very good on our spanish.
Passion Sangria for drink lovely accompanied by a cheeseboard with two types of cheese, olives, ham, strawberries and a small pasta bologanse. For a main my boyfriend got lasagne and I had raviolli stuffed with mozarella with arribbati sauce, both delicious.
We where both stuffed and wanted a dessert so choose the Oreo cheesecake to take back to the room.

Would recommend this :)

“Good service and good food”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Www.dondecomer.co is my blog about restaurants. This restaurant is a good place to be well served and have good food. We went to the one at El Tesoro and although it was crowded the service was quick and accurate and the food was as requested. I have to recommend the mushroom soup... It was great as well as the shrimp ravioli. You can also customize your dish, and it came as requested. There is also a coffee shop attached to it which serves really good coffee, although it is not for free :(
Worth the visit.

“Nice Italian food (not very cheap though)”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This restaurant which seems to be operated conjointly with the Cafe De Todo Fresa serves very nice food. I loved the bread cubes one gets as appetizer. Mostly entrees are served with a complimentary salad and the pasta is very nice and not too heavy. The good thing is one can order medium portions, which avoids overeating. The food is good, but there are cheaper options around.

“Great Italian food, desserts, and service”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I've eaten at Parmessano several times and I've never been disappointed. I usually order pastas because the variety of sauces is good and I never have to order the same thing twice. I've also had their salads and sandwiches and while different from what I'm used to in the USA, they're still very good.

One thing I have to comment on is the quality of service. In Medellin, good service in restaurants is usually hard to find unless you're going to some of the top places in the city. With price points around $15-20,000 pesos, I would put Parmessano solidly in the mid-range restaurant category but the service couldn't be better.

For dessert, the options are plentiful. Parmessano is teamed up with a great Medellin bakery called Todo Fresa so their cakes, pies, and coffees are all top quality. I usually order the apple pie with ice cream because it reminds me a lot of what my grandma used to make.

Overall, I'd say this is some of the best Italian food I've tasted outside of Italy. Keep up the good work, Parmessano!
