Della Nonna Trattoria is a popular chain of Italian restaurants in Medellín with some very good Italian food and attentive service.

After you’ve been in Colombia for a while and had your fill of rice, frijoles, patacones and chicharrón, there’s nothing like having some good Italian food. Della Nonna Trattoria is a classy chain of Italian restaurants with very good Italian food.

Furthermore, Della Nonna Trattoria is currently ranked the 10th best Italian restaurant out of over 180 Italian restaurants in Medellín listed on TripAdvisor in Medellín.  But keep in mind that TripAdvisor can’t always be trusted for Medellín and in my opinion Della Nonna Trattoria should be ranked higher.
