The meal was superb from start to finish. Martin, the funny waiter, is one of the most hilarious people I have ever met. Every five minutes he doffs a different hat (Chinese, Dutch girl, witch, Kermit the frog, you name it, he's got it) and rushes into the street shouting "Pasta della Mamma! Pasta della Mamma!" And the pasta is superb--the day I was there the choices for homemade pasta were gnocchi with brown butter and sage, tagliatelle, or ravioli. I had the tagliatelle with half spinach-and-cream sauce and half bolognese, both excellent. For dessert they have terrific flan, dulce de leche tart, apple pudding, and a lot of other things. Everything, wine, salad, pasta, dessert, and coffee was less than $25. In my opinion, this is THE place to eat in Colonia and I'll be going back.

Excellent restaurant, low prices, excellent pasta, and a great atmosphere. We stopped for lunch while we were walking around looking for the town Church.

One of the waiters is extremely funny. He dresses up with hats, changing them often, all quite funny, signs and shouts, and keeps customers quite entertained.

Our meal was fantastic and although I don't remember exactly how much we paid, I recall that it wasn't too expensive by US standards. You can eat outdoors or indoors in a much more formal setting. We loved it.
