Walked around the corner from our hotel. This place was very clean and staff very friendly and helpful. We shared two pasta dishes. One was red sauce, ziti, and pepperoni. The other was a carbonara. Great food, reasonably priced. Will definitely recommend and will be going back.

Wanted to dress for dinner but arrived too early and spent too many hours to go back and accomplish that. The brother/owners I met were extremely friendly and gracious. Perfectly cooked lobster tails and with them upon request I was served the lime I prefer to lemon. Quiet street so it was lovely sitting on the patio enjoying intimate conversation... More

We have been Santiago for several months, and this is the best restaurant that we have found.It is run by a family of brothers and the pasta is handmade and superior, the sauces good. The room was private and the waiter attentive

By far the best kitchen in town. Chef Gerardo is a master. There is not one single dish coming out of that kitchen that is not a 10 out of 10. It's family ran and you get the feeling of house cooking and excellent service. Just ask for something you like, or anything that comes up in your head and... More

Reasonably priced pasta, you can pick the type of pasta and make lots of changes to the dish (change the seafood, change the sauce, add things). Pasta was served in pots with lids - as they explained - "trattoria style". No wine list but the waiter brought several bottles to choose from. Try the Malbec from Argentina (assuming they had...

This restaurant is behind the Gran Almirante hotel in santiago. All food is fresh and healthy. It is the best food I have ever eaten. If you like good food you must go. This place is in a home, very small and intimate, maybe 9 table, quality like nothing else.

Like many small, non-chain restaurants in Santiago, the exterior is humble, albeit inviting and clean. Upon entry, we were greeted by a very cordial gentleman who seemed genuinely happy and excited to have us as guests. We sat at a large, possibly artisan crafted, rustic table, aside the wall of wine bottles. The scent of garlic and spices filled the... More
