Pasta e Vino is often credited with starting Valparaíso's gastronomic revival nearly a decade ago. It started as a tiny restaurant with a group of tables off a colorful "pasaje," or side street in the port. Word spread, it took months to get a table, and they expanded. Today, the food and menu remains nearly the same. Tender, homemade pasta and a killer wine list with a low key, cool vibe. Some pasta combinations are unusual, like razor clams in a champagne sauce with strawberries. Others are simply delicious—like fava bean ravioli with sauteed shrimp and orange sauce or stuffed with duck confit and plum. Reservations essential.
