Good, authentic pasta dishes in a lovely outdoor sitting above the lake. We got a tuk-tuk to bring us here from El Remate, although it's only about a 15 - 20 minute walk. The driver was late coming back to pick us up so the...More

Did not expect to find such great pasta in a tiny town in Guatemala. Everything is so fresh and flavourful. One of the best options you are going to find in this town for sure. You can have vegetarian friendly food but be very sure...More

Homemade pasta. Don Angelo knows how to greet customer. A bit above price in town. But its all worth it. Wine and pasta made from a real Italian. Could you resist. I couldn't. Try it
