All the pasta is made in house by Italian born Patricio. You'll come to know everybody working in the restaurant! Just like it is tradition in the old world, everybody greets you and bids you farewell, talks to you in four different languages and makes sure you feel at home and well taken care of. Pasta of every shape and... More

My family and I found this restaurant by "accident" when the owner, Patricio, greeted us at the entrance with a huge smile and friendly chat. He explained to us the menu and made emphasis on the homemade pasta... we were immediately hooked and had to try his dishes. We had a very good experience during our dinner and the Maracuya... More

Popped in here for lunch and really enjoyed everything they put in front of us. Wasn't a cheap lunch but that may be down to the amount we ordered. Everything was delicious though so we didn't mind. Definitely worth a visit.

We found Wippy's one afternoon, after quite a bit of walking around in 85+ degree temps - was a very nice respite, out of the heat, with a very nice selection of pastas and sauces, which could be combined as you chose, and nicely air conditioned, too!

If you are in Cartagena and want pasta inside the Centro Histórico, this is the place, small and nice ambient and decor. The pasta is home made and have good variety. For family is very nice and for a romantic dinner too. With the chef you can customize your plate. The service of the waiter could be better for the... More

Just back from a lovely lunch at Wippy where we both had spaghetti alle vongole and it was just right: plenty of clams, nice broth and the pasta cooked al dente. We had a lemonade, again as we prefer, not too acidic nor overly sweet. The ambience is quiet jazzy music, good service and cool rather than cold. No doubt... More

The restaurant is small but big on charm. Great wait staff. The menu offers several interestnig types of sauces that you can choose. None of them are typical. Then you choose the style of pasta you want the sauce on. The pasta is freshly made. Good portions. I would go back.

When you arrive, the wait staff present you with a bowl of dried pasta to pick from and mix with an extensive list of sauces, many of which I'd never heard of. Our first visit, we opted for Livorgnia—marinara with peas and squid. It was delicious, but completely overshadowed by the Wippy Ceviche. Their eponymous ceviche is simply amazing. I... More
