This is a small cafe with both indoor and outdoor seating. MY CARBONARA was absolutely delicious! Much better than what I just had at a well known Chicago Italian restaurant!! Service was great and it is just steps from LA 70. Small, local and awesome!

As soon as you arrive you get the feeling you've been transported to an old school pizzeria somewhere in Italy. The staff will make you feel like you're part of their family, it's clear that they cook with LOVE for the food and LOVE for the customer. We can never eat enough, that's why we always order 1 pie to go after we finish eating dinner :)

The food is decent, but not overly Italian and not overly special. I have tried several dishes, and they are generally okay, though somewhat lacking in flavor. The service can be very odd-- sometimes entertaining, sometimes very, very slow. There can also be oddities with the bill, so make sure the price you are told is correct.

For some time I’ve been wanting to try their pizza. I finally was in the right area at the right time and arrived with a friend. It’s just off (west of) Avenida Setenta. It’s walking distance from Estacion Estadio but an inexpensive and easy way to get here would be to get off the metro at the station, rent a bicycle with a Civica card, ride to Avenida San Juan (Calle 44), check in your bicycle and walk the last 2-3 blocks.

We sat at one of their outdoor tables as I love the fresh air seating in Medellin. We ordered a Napolitana (cheese, tomatoes and oregano) pizza and soft drinks. There was only one other party so our pizza came pretty quickly – 10 minutes?

The pizza was very good (slightly greasy) although being from Chicago my favorite pizza place here is still Pizza Americana.

The medium pizza for 2 with sodas cost 27,000 pesos (about $10).

At the time of this review (April, 2017) there were 2,850 pesos to the US Dollar.
