The restaurant is located in El Poblado and although it's next to a busy street, once you are inside the Restaurant, you don't hear the cars. The place is very nice. The menu has a lot of options to choose from. They offer half portions for many of the dishes, which is a good thing for someone like me who... More

A really good choice for Italian food in El Poblado. The ravioli were recommended and were really good. Friendly service, nice atmosphere and relatively reasonably priced wine (by Colombian standards).

Pizza Pacifico is a pizza I have had nowhere else and is great. Hand made spinach stuffed ravioli with toasted almonds. Veal with penne carbonara. Everything we have tried has been wonderful! The wait staff is excellent. This is a restaurant we always take friends to.

I've been here several times now and will keep going back as its my favourite Italian in Medellin. The staff are really nice and it's great value for what you get. There's nothing complicated about the food, it's just good pasta/pizza done well for a good price.

I ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese for lunch and it had a really bad aftertaste. I barely ate a few mouthfuls before giving up on it. Service is very good so I am giving more than one star for this review. I would recommend trying one of the several other Italian restaurants in the Poblado area.

We stopped in for a dinner with the kids and we all came away pleased. The pizza carnuda ("meat lovers") was a hit with the kids and the adults enjoyed the pasta carbonara and primavera. Service was good - they brought the kids' food out first and were otherwise perfectly attentive. The out the door cost was reasonable. I'll go... More

Not massively impressed by this Italian. Service was slow and the food was nothing special. The flavours were simply not there. Nice decor and nothing overly offensive, but nothing to write home about either.
