Ristorante Al Cuoco

Italian in Barichara

This fairly elegant one-man Italian show is run out of the home of an amicable Roman chef. Though the menu is limited (some raviolis, cannelloni, gnocchi, risotto, a couple of mains and some desserts), the house-made pasta excels, both as a deviation from the status quo and as a culinary journey to the Mother Boot. Reservations recommended weekends and holidays.

Don't leave without trying the house creation – Parmesan ice cream (COP$13,000); the cheese contrasts perfectly with blackberries and almonds to create a taste sensation.
