Il Castello was our favourite restaurant in Medellin. It was always busy and buzzing with well-dressed locals (nothing over the top though) and the staff was always welcoming. Fantastic wood oven pizza and great pasta. Make sure to have a reservation, especially during lunch time!

Nice atmosphere and cozy restaurant. Pastas were good and made in house. Pizza could have been better, the cheese didn't quite have the right flavor or consistency.
