The service is friendly but slow, the food itself was very good but served almost cold. What really annoyed me was the way they handle payment, I was given a note with the total for the food, 59.000 + "Servicio voluntario" 7.000. I put 70.000 and they didn't return me any money back. "Servicio voluntario" means voluntary tipping and is... More

We were referred to this restaurant and had high expectations. The owner is super nice and the atmosphere is fun with hundreds of people's photographs displayed on the walls. The wine list is limited but has a mix of Italian and Chilean reds on offer. We had an appetizer and two meals. The eggplant Parmesan was hot and tasty. The... More

Very nice home made pasta. I usually have the artichoke ravioli and they where really good. The Italian owner is usually on around checking on the details. Service is good, if the place is crowded (it usually is on Friday and Saturday evenings) food may take a while, but you can enjoy a cup of wine or a nice local... More

Ask for Mario! The owner. He will advise you! Every single plate I had was wonderful! But what made it extra special was Mario's company and Italian warmth! The Berengenas, the Parmesan. The Risotto with chesse! The Fetucchini de mare!!!!!! Los champiñones salteados!!!!! Everything was excelent! You must try it if you have cravings for excellent Italian food!

Good trattoria style cuisine in Cartagena. Non pretentious and good quality food, traditional dishes and good seafood. I find this restaurant delicious and a good place to eat where locals eat Italian food with out paying a fortune as Cartagena is very touristy and expensive.

We stayed next door and tried the place. We were not impressed with either the food or the service. The pasta boglonese was tasteless and the service was average. The staff could not recommend or translate the daily specials...

Good trattoria food. Chef/owner Mario delivers a nice food, he takes good care of his guests and can make special orders not in the menu. Waiting staff is friendly but not pro. Home made pasta and bread can be enough for visiting again. The octopus antipasto is a 5 stars dish.

The restaurant is not the fanciest but it is clean, quiet and the food is unbelievable. I ate the fish with lemon and wine sauce and the vegetables. My mom had the spinach raviolis. The price is reasonable and the food was fresh and exquisite. I am definitely going back! Loved it!!
