The place is beautifully located at "Calle de los anticuarios", in the middle of a nice neighbourhood full of antiques and deco stores. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service was super kind. We had a nice pasta, some mussels and great wine. Everything was delicious. Nevertheless the antipasto marino was truly disappointing.

First of all, the place and address is hard to find as it's located within a residential area that makes it easy to confuse with a regular house around the neighborhood. In regards to the place, the decoration seems to be a little awkward mainly because the furniture seems to be old sofas and chairs pulled out from an old... More

Went for dinner on a Friday night. Nice and cozy place, hassle free, great service, very pleasant live music, and the risotto with mushrooms made in parmesan cheese is absolutely fantastic. The price is a plus, having so many terribly expensive places on Bogota, this one is decently affordable.

Just been to this restaurant for lunch so I thought I would share my experience. On arrival the waitress brought a plate of bruschetta which was delicious and rustic white bread which again was very good. I ordered as an entree tomato and mozzarella salad which was very disappointing. The mozzarella was very bland and on the firm side, whilst... More

I don't remember anything of this restaurant. It's very normal, but expensive. The ambient it's nice, romantic and discret. If I want to eat pasta, I go to Di Lucca.

People smoke into the restaurant. There are Many italian restaurants with better food and lower prices. The bread is too hard to be eaten. Nothing fresh at all.

I was staying in the area and stumbled on this cute semi-outside restaurant. I had the ricotta and prosciutto penne and the pasta were cooked to perfection, which is a rare find... however after a few bites I realised it tasted EXACTLY like kraft dinner. Spot on. Just me? Friendliness of waitress below expectations. Tasty lemonade. All in all an... More

Restaurant is wonderful from the outside: dim light, long candles, good italian music, very romantic setting. Food was really lousy. Ordered a mozzarela di burrata and was so so, very creamy and insipid. Then tried the seafood rissotto which was reallyyy bad: it was a chicken chowder of rice with some tiny shrimps and squids... very disappointing.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at this cozy restaurant. The service is great and our two pasta dishes were both delicious, as was the (homemade?) bread and the free welcome-bruscetta, and the house-specialty: tiramisu. There were not many free tables on the tuesday night we went, so it might be a good idea to make a reservation.

I discovered Il Tinello while shopping for antiques on calle 79. Il Tinello has a very nice ambiance (great outdoor patio and beautifully decorated inside). They start off by bringing you homemade bread topped with a delicious Italian tomato sauce and of course your own bottle of olive oil. Every time I eat there, I get the steamed fish they... More
