Thoroughly enjoyed DaDanni's a brilliant little Italian restaurant in the old part of Cartagena. Really helpful staff and a chef who can really cook, great flavours, good choice, good for vegetarians and reasonable prices, I thoroughly recommend it!

Fantastic, best restaurant in Cartagena. As the owner sad, "no hay competencia", and it's true. Cartagena is a city with horrible food. Da Danni's is a oasis in the middle of so much junk.

The restaurant wasn't very crowded but the food was great. I ordered the beef ravioli with marinara sauce and my husband ordered the involving with spinach and both were delicious. The quality of the pasta was great, light and flavorful. Although the ambiance was not great the food more than makes up for it. Great pasta and very affordable.

This place was recommended to us by the couple who own Elia's Jewelry (an excellent place to shop for jewerly). Initially, I was skeptical because it's one of those places it's easy to miss. I'm glad we tried it. The restaurant is very charming, and the food was exceptional! I had the Langostinos with Brandy. I highly recommend it--it was... More

We stopped in for the air conditioning and stayed for a great Italian lunch. The service was good, the beer and white wine cold. We shared an excellent caprese salad and penne bolognese. We thought the calamari was a bit 'fishy'.

It is not one the best experiences I've had in Cartagena but the food is good enough to go. Average pasta, average service. Not the most beautiful place. It is an old stile restaurant but not with the quality of those traditional restaurants.

Again I have to say they have great food, The Involtini is my favorite. It is a nice family owned atmosphere inside located in the San Diego district of the Old Walled City of Cartagena with the horse drawn carriages clip clopping by every few minutes.

The food here was good but the thing that let it down was a lack of atmosphere. There were only 4 people in the place. No complaints with the food though.

This restaurant is located inside a beautiful colonial home just 2 blocks from the Sofitel Santa Clara Hotel and is great for private dining - in fact most customers seem to be local "Cartageneros". The food is delicious and the owner - Alvaro - is very attentive. The artwork on the walls is also very interesting. I make sure I... More
