Could be easily the best Italian restaurant in town. The food has never disappointed me, and every time it confirms me that it's the best. It's the best based in value, test and service al served in a premium package.

My expectations were pretty low for Italian in Colombia being that I am from NYC...i was incredibly wrong. We ordered a ton of appetizers, all of which were delicious. Everyone was extremely satisfied with the pasta and main dishes as well. Highly recommend this place!
