Dining out in the open air is no novelty to Medellin residents, but this comfortable venue provides indoor seating that is open to the outdoors for its Parque Lleras customers. This is the El Poblado location of the popular restaurant chain. Overlooking the street during one of October's frequent light rains, we started off with a pitcher of Sangria, loaded with chopped apples immersed in a base of rosé sparkling wine. Not too sweet, but very refreshing.
The Pizza Genovesa I ordered, with house tomato base, mozzarella mixed with sliced green olives,ham, mushrooms and red tomatoes. With its wood-fired thin crust, it was exceptionally delicious, though I am not generally a fan of such fare. Under US$9, this was a treat
My partner cleaned his plate of Fillippo (Romano), a combination offered consisting of house salad, pork chop and Spaghetti Carbonara. Less than US$10.
Having room for dessert, my partner was delighted by Il Forno's Tiramisù, claiming it among the best ever sampled. US$4.
The extensive menu ranges from salads, carpaccio, stuffed mushrooms and antipasto through sandwiches, pizzas, oven pastas, lasagnas, cannelloni, ravioli, spaghetti, entree combinations and (of course) desserts.
