I think to be very critic on food, and I only review the restaurants when their service and food is excellent (except if I feel very bad with them): I do not like to review the bad ones.
This restaurant is THE RESTAURANT. I know very well Italian food, I have been to Italy and tried the best restaurants there.. I tried different Italian restaurants abroad but they are never comparable to what you can eat in Italy.
THIS RESTAURANT IS THE EXCEPTION.
first: I arrived, it was FULL of Italians. Italians are known to be very critic about their food.. I had a hint.
second: the service was excellent. All the staff cheered us, great smiles, very well welcomed. although the restaurant was really crowded they had some time to spend with us and explain their menu.
third: they are all Italians. the waiters, the chef. they all speak italian among them, you feel like being in Italy.
fourth: once you see the menu, you understand that they are giving you the best of Italian tradition. and everything is fresh and done by theirselves. I repeat: DONE BY THEIRSELVES!!!
The bread, the ricota cheese, the bacon, the fresh pasta.. everything!!!
Now... I did not know what to eat, but finally I decided. caprese salad, fresh tagliatelle with octopus, fresh raviolis with ricota. THEY DID THE PASTA IN FRONT OF ME!!! this is something very difficult to find in Italy.. and I am miles away from it.
Once I tasted that food... I realized I was in a special place. it is not normal, neither in the US, Canada or in Europe. who are they?!
chatting with the owner I understood. The Italian chef came from a 5 star restaurant in Milan, worked with the best Italian Chef in the world (there is his certificate exposed in the restaurant) and finally moved here to follow his friend (the owner).
I think that this restaurant is one of the best ones I have never been to. If I consider the service, their cheerful chats with us.. it is probably THE BEST I HAVE BEEN TO. and this is Italian.. out of Italy.
If you are in Colombia.. take a flight, come here. you have to taste it!
