Mangia in Santiago
Americans are known for their obsession with Italian food, but Chileans enjoy it as well. One of the best spots in Santiago for Italian fare is Italissimo. Far more than a pizzeria, this trattoria specializes in Mediterranean flavors.
Italian Recipes, Chilean Fish
Italissimo makes good use of Chile’s seaside location. There are several seafood dishes on the menu, along with traditional favorites from Italy. One of the most popular meals is the Tortelloni al Mar dei Caribi–tortellini stuffed with ricotta, spinach, squid, shrimp, and leeks.
Customers can either dine inside the restaurant, or relax on Italissimo’s wide patio. For hungry visitors in a hurry, Italissimo offers an express option: lasagna, calzones, and pizza by the slice. Those looking for a hearty pasta will find that and more at Italissimo.
