We love eating at this delicious Italian restaurant. The menu is very extensive and we have found that the Italian dishes are what shine at this restaurant. The ambiance is lovely with classical music and candle light. Just make sure you don't eat in the smoking section.

If Italian is what you want in Cochabamba, La Cantonata is the place to go. They have all the expected dishes, well prepared and reasonably priced - unless sea food is what you crave, a thousand kilometres from the sea... However, many of the dishes are correctly labeled "Not so Italian", and are also very tasty, such as the French... More

Love this restaurant! The lasagna, among other dishes, comes out in a mini-casserole plate, and is steaming hot, fresh out of the oven! The service is excellent and the atmosphere is pleasant. The pricing is what can be expected at a nice restaurant in Cochabamba. Give it a try, and you won't regret it!

Depending of what you take you pay a little more than elsewhere but the service as well as the quality of the food reflect the price. I wish i could go a second time for a pizza !

Just went to celebrate a birthday there this week. Out of 7 different orders, 3 were just not good. One pasta had whole cloves in it and was just too oily. Another one was just off, seemed like the cream used in the Alfredo sauce was not properly stored or cooked. The gnocchi were very doughy, could barely taste the... More

We were invited for a nice lunch. The pasta is excellent. The staff is helpful and the interior was in excellent condition. The tiramisu and the cake from the house are recommended.

This is a great place to enjoy a great pasta in Cochabamba City. Located downtown on España Street just a couple of block away from Plaza Colón. The restaurant has been there for a very long time, has very good service a good wine menu and possibly the best pasta in the city. Perfect for a peaceful and delicious lunch... More

The cozy ambience makes it the right choice for dinner with friends. They have a varied menu and the service was very good. It has a good location but I recommend reservation, especially on week-ends.
