I have been coming to this place for many years since they open, never had a bad experience.

Last week having dinner with my family and some friends from out of town Chef Luca really impress us with the food display he created for us, it was out of this world, even my friends from Lugano that were having dinner with us we're happy. The pasta was freshly made and al dente, the sauce was just fenomenal, the apetizers, and the dessert.

I will always recommend this place for Italian food in el Rodadero, there is no other place like this one.

By the way the staff was very helpful and very polite, and thanks Luca for coming to the table and explaining the many choices in Italian to my guest.

Thank encisoleo

Small family owned restaurant with a fantastic selection of classic favorites. Good Italian food is difficult to find in Colombia. Vineria El Sabor de Italia will not disappoint those seeking a true Italian dinning experience. The owner and chef Lucca is from Italy and successfully delivers the secret recipes of his home country to the Northern Coast of Colombia. Don't miss this hidden gem on your next visit to Santa Marta!

I travel to Santa Marta often for business and always include a visit to this restaurant. It is small and so can be crowded on weekend nights but the food is really good. The owner Lucca is also the chef so he is there every night and he really has a good touch. Not much English is spoken by the staff so a little Spanish helps but the menu is easily understood without any. Pastas are a specialty but every dish I have had is good. Wonderful carpaccios to start and a good cheese plate. Good selection of South American wines. Even though many bottles on the list may not be available that night, there is always something good to drink. My last comment is that the last time I was there in late February, the restaurant was full of locals (as opposed to tourists in a tourist town). That is always a good sign.
