I have been here several times. Always a pleasurable experience. A quaint and pleasant atmosphere. Not many tables, reservations are suggested, they do fill up mostly with locals. They are usually exhibiting some local artist's work on their walls, tasteful, and yes it is for sale. Very good Italian, mixture of several chef's creations along side with well prepared classic Italian dishes. Carpaccio is nice and tender. Raviolis are home made. Bolognese sauce is amongst the best I have had. Tiramisu was soft, sweet (but not too sweet) and creamy. Dinner for three sharing an appetizer and a desert ran about $60US plus the wine of your choice (which should accompany a meal such as this). I will continue to enjoy this little gem.

Every table was reserved so I was told to sit at the bar. It took over 1.5 hours for the reserved table to fill, which would have given the staff more than enough time to seat me. The Calamari was less than average and the Ravioli special was OK. The cars took up the entrance walkway so I had to squeeze my way into the entrance nearly falling over myself. Reservations are a must for this place however I really was not that impressed,

Went tonight with two friends. We ordered calamari (do not recommend), mixed ravioli (delicious), fettucini bolognese (good, needed salt) and spinach fettucini with tomatoes and prosciutto (delicious). They served up a delicious sample of bread/cheese and spice thing that was tasty. Overall we all enjoyed the experience and would return for sure if we were staying in Medellin longer than 4 days.

If you want to eat good pasta in Medellín, probably this will be one of the top choices. Excellent food for a good price.
