...but they´re pretty average. If you want a good italian, try El Grappo de uva near parque poblado, or the lovely italian on the ground floor in the Olveida shopping centre next to the Sheraton hotel. Authentic, great carpaccio which is unusual for Medellin.

There are about 6 il forno in Medellin. All are busy and for good reason. Great value, good food. Pasta lunch for about 14,000 pesos. Can't be beat.

We tried Il Forno based upon a good review in Lonely Planet and we weren't disappointed. They had good, basic Italian food and a nice kids' menu. Like many restaurants in Zona Rosa, it's open air with a roof, which makes for a pleasant meal.

I had pasta with some kind of tomato sauce. Pasta was soggy and fat. Sauce taste like right out from store brand bottle. If someone made food in this quality at my house, they go straight to garbage can. And I surely haven't made food this bad in my life.
