When you go to La Montanara you will probably fin it really crowded. I have waited even an hour to get seated. However, is not that bad since you can have some entrees and drinks while seated in the bar or in the waiting room. The atmosphere is awesome for those who enjoy crowded and noisy places. Also, the restaurant... More

It is the best Italian no doubt in caracas. It's a very good service, food and ambiance. The combination is perfect. It has a clientele dignifying the amazing 25 years of experience.

The place has nice atmosphere, is always very busy, so is better to arrive not later than 7-8pm. Antipasti, pizza and pastas are very good. They are closed on Sundays !!

The place is always packed but we know the owner and a couple of waiters so they always come through with a table quickly. The focaccia is delicious and the daily specials are usually good. Great atmosphere. A must place to check if you are in Caracas.

Trattoria atmosphere - busy, frenetic, atmospheric. Open kitchen, great pizza and anti pasta. Very popular so arrive early (before the doors open @ 7pm) to get a seat otherwise you could be waiting at the bar awhile. Don't be fooled by the exterior (which is somewhat unfetching) the inside is far more welcoming.

This is a small Italian restaurant, the food is pretty nice, pasta pizza fish, because is so small is always crowed so if you don't like noise and a lot of people this isn't for you they have a valet parking not so good, on the best side the deserts are amazing
