    Decent pizza with standard dough and good toppings. I wouldn’t go out of my way to return for the pizza alone, however the menu had lots of other options and pasta, so it’s hard to judge without trying. Definitely looks well put together and clean, and a big plus: they use a stone pizza oven. Worth trying.

    My husband and I ate here for lunch. The atmosphere isn’t stuffy but really quite nice. He had the pizza and I had the shrimp pasta after a wonderful puffy bread. Both meals were very good. The service was wonderful as well and a menu in English was provided. I will definitely eat here again.

    I cant believe this service. The soup suck I out the plate on the side no one care. Order crabmeat spaghetti that some how shows up without spaghetti and when I ask where is the crab meat he told me it’s there inside the paste. No where to be found or taste. Terrible. Very disappointed that plates are on the side not touched and no one care.

    We have this place a try when walking by all the restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised of how good everything was. The carbonara, bolognese spaghetti and pizza were all very tasty and the waiter was also really nice. We hope to go back before we leave Cartagena.

    We confirmed our decision after checking their QR menu outside of the restaurant. The prices were reasonably economic for a wine wine bar in Cartagena and I enjoyed having a smoke with some craft beer in the outside seating while we waited for our food. My bruschetta was delicious and fresh. If your looking for quality service, ask for Daniel.

    The food was great and service was too, but I asked for 2 things and received something different. I was charged for both and I told them I didn't order it. I'm sure it was the language barrier, but other than it was good.

  • 3Marijke D. 10 months ago
    I’m sorry to say this because the food was very good and the waiter one of the nicest and most wonderful I ever had but I was only in Colombia/Cartagena for 48 hours and this is the only place where I used my credit card. 24 hrs later I got a message from the credit card company that my card was skimmed. So please go to this place for good food and service but don’t use your credit card.

    We tried this restaurant at the recommendation of a cab driver and wow were we impressed. The service was perfect and the food outstanding. Olvidio's service was top notch and he speaks english well and is very personable. His food and wine recommendations were perfect. The salad large enough for two was filled with fresh tomatoes and olives. The main course meals were delicious too. It's out new favorite restaurant in all of Cartagena.

    Last week I didn't get a chance to eat here because once I was seated. The waiter caught an attitude because I couldn't find the wine on the menu and ask him where was it listed at. Additionally because they know that alot of tourist come there, they only sell one selection of wine (which is a cheap chilean one) by the glass. They sell majority of the other wines by the bottle which was a real disservice. It is the epitome of a tourist trap. I chose to go elsewhere

    ✨✨✨✨✨ We stumbled on this place and we're so happy we did. The service was excellent. Very full service... The food was super yummy. We had the following: Limonada = both Mango and cherry🍒. They were made frozen which we loved so they could melt and stay cold in the heat. We shared a ceasar salad 🥗 Prawns pasta made with olive oil and basil etc Crab meat pasta made in white sauce... The bread that is given is so fresh and yummy. This place was top notch. One of our best dining experiences in Colombia 🇨🇴 ✨✨✨✨✨

  • 5Geneva J. 1 year ago
    We loved this place! We happen to meet the owner who was doing a taste test of some new items for the menu. The best was the authentic truffle pasta mixed inside the giant cheese wheel. Unbelievably good- and my boyfriend is from Italy and VERY PICKY about Italian food. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Excellent food, best I ate in cartagena in 14 days and the service 5 stars Daniel the waiter provide excellent service, don't leave cartagena without eating at this restaurant.

  • 5Paul H. 2 years ago
    The best pasta in Cartagena IMHO. The truffle pasta is actually pretty truffly, and they even make the sauce in front of you with a blowtorch and a giant cheese wheel. The puttanesca and carbonara were also excellent. The pastas are pretty cheap too, and a great deal for their price. The only pizza I tried was actually pretty bad and we never finished it. But it was also delivered, so it was a bit lukewarm and soft. The mushroom side was also not really worth it.

    We just walked by and looked at the menus. The restaurant is extremely good at making truly Italian dishes. The Hawaiian pizza had a thin, crunchy crust that tasted delicious and the cheese and toppings were perfect. The chicken dish with potatoes was fab. Authentic Italian oven cooked like your grandma makes. Fresh rosemary and garlic. Definitely come here for dinner when you are in Cartagena.

    Edgardo was the absolute best server we have had in Colombia!!! He made our night. If you are fluent in Spanish or not, he truly makes you feel at home. He has a great sense of humor and is very competent. The food at Lafontana is absolutely DELICIOUS. I’m from Boston and have easy access to the North End - the Italian food at Fontana was honestly just as good if not better. Definitely stop by here one night on your trip!!!

    (Translated by Google) Actually, I uploaded the photo where the central part of the pizza is missing, apparently after the division of eight portions, which disrespectfully, pay 41 thousand pesos for 7 portions of 8 that you pay. (Original) La verdad, subí la foto donde falta la parte central de la pizza, al parecer después de la división de ocho porciones, que falta de respeto, pague 41 mil pesos por 7 porciones de 8 que pague.

    Had dinner here in Jan 2019. We had pizza and seafood risotto. It was delicious! The patio is up off the sidewalk so somewhat quieter and removed from the street vendors.

    A little expensive but a nice place to have drinks and eat some pizza. The crusts are thin but soft and the toppings looked fresh. Great selection of beverages and cool atmosphere
