It was about my fifth time in Buona Testa, but the first time this year. I asked for a Pizza Española (Spanish Pizza) which, in the menu, was supposed to have meat, onions, red peppers and spanish "chorizo". Well, it arrived without the meat so I asked the waiter for it. They took away my pizza and brought it back... More

I stayed 9 days in Pucon and obviously I tried several restaurants. I decided to write a review only for the best one, and for me this was the restaurant Buonatesta. COmpared to the other restaurants I tried, Buonatesta has the same prices but a higher quality service, with a very special care of the customers. I ate a delicious... More

Pizzeria Buonatesta- for Valentine's Day. Had cannelloni. They make it with a great white sauce, I recommend getting a side of bolognase sauce to have red and the risotto together that you are probably used to. Otherwise it's noodles with meat and only White or only red sauce. My husband ordered fettuccini sauce and I had bolognase and we mixed... More

We thought we'd try Buonatesta for a relatively late lunch and were happy with the choice. There was a fair amount of seating available and we chose to sit inside out of the sun, which was quite strong at that stage. It also enabled us to avoid the smokers outside! We went with a selection of pastas - I had... More

Great selection of pizza options, Italian food, beer, and of course...Pisco Sours! Prices and service were good and the location was just far enough off the street to make it secluded and private.

Relaxed lunch here with great pasta - service was excellent from young girl who looked after us. Sitting in the garden drinking a Pillar ale and enjoying some good Italian - nice place for a casual get together. Bit dark inside but outside has a nice feel.

After a strenuous day's hiking I was ready for a pasta. Unfortunately one of my favorite restaurants in Pucon did not have an outside table so I went looking for another. I should have realised my mistake when entering as almost all tables had several small children. But being exhausted I sat down. Attention was good I must say but... More

Unlike some Pucon restaurants (e.g., Senzo), the Italian trattoria in the heart of town is fairly down-to-earth, and the service (in our experience, just one dinner), was fine - better (faster) than the Pucon/Chilean average. Favoured by families and, when we were there, pretty full-up; wood-burning stove in the middle is a nice touch (it was pouring with rain). We... More

Seemed like a good choice. Outside shady seating and average priced pizzas eiither single serving or double size. Of the seven orders placed they didn't have three of the items ordered. It took one hour to be served. There was a piece of stone in one pizza and a distressingly short hair in another. The main dish salads were side... More
