Very good italian restaurant in Caracas.. Prices are very reasonable, on the savings side, maybe that is was full at luch with the locals. Amazing that is was full in spite of the heavy recesion. I had tortellinis filled with spinach and ricotta; with bolognes sauce very nice.

A restaurant with italian and international cuisine, not very sophisticated but still tasty. The place is noisy, but fine for a family with children.

Located along the Riveria Rio Guiare, La Balconata, as the name suggests offers outside dining. The view is not too inspiring (unless, of course, you find pleasure in viewing flyovers and concrete support pillars) however it's nice to be able to find a location in Las Mercedes with an outside dining option. Seated on the balcony we were attended to... More

Gnocchi, pasta, lasagna, pizza, carpaccio, almost everything is excellent. Ask for Mr. Andrea, he was the owner of a great Italian restaurant and now works there. Very good service and prices. Excellent infrastructure

This restaurant was a grand waste of time and money for me. First, the waiter took forever to take the orders and we always had to be beckoning vehemently everytime we needed his attention. After handing us the menu, he just did not come back, and about 10-15 minutes later when we realised how ridiculous it was we had to... More

Some of the best Italian I have had outside of Italy. In a vibrant block of Las Mercedes, La Balconata offers indoor seating or outdoor in a patio. I had an amazing carpaccio and the pasta with grana padano sauce. The atmosphere is laid back. Service is efficient, but attentive. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Caracas.

This has been one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to, it is strange that lots of people go to it so the cooks have to work fast but the food even if it is cooked fast it is really really exquisite. Recommend it totally, I would give it a 4.5/5

Thank 17danielb
