Nice restaurant with Outdoor Seating

I was craving some pizza or pasta and had dinner here one night. Service was great and food was good. Pizza was a thin crust, a little too thin and crunchy, but it satisfied my craving. The grapefruit daquiri (Papa Hemingway, is what I think it was called) was very good, I had a few of them... read more

Recommended in Lonely Planet but it's a government-run place with below-average food, including pizza toppings out of a tin.

We stopped there for lunch. We has shrimps, prawns and chicken as a main course. It was a 3 course set menu and the food was great. The service was prompt. They were very busy and also had outside seating. The usual band was also playing during the meal. This restaurant was a good choice and well worth the visit.

Stopped here at this Old Havana restaurant for a pizza and salad. Both were excellent. Cuban music always good. Staff friendly and very good service. We liked it so much we went back two evenings later for another pizza.

One of my most favorite restaurants to take friends, too. I have taken Americans and friends and family that live in Cuba and they love it. The pizza is really good and so are the Cappucinos. In addition, I had Lobster on the last occasion and it was excellent. Their Salads are big and masterpieces. They are so, so good.... More

A nice change from standard Cuban fare, we discovered this on our brief trip to old Havana. Very pleasant to sit outdoors, soak up the street ambiance and enjoy the live band. Portions were very generous.

Went to La Dominica after reading some good reviews on its pizza. It was very disappointing. The cheese had a tangy taste and my ceasar salad was so drenched in dressing that the lettuce was soggy. This was a total waste of one nights dinner. Would not recommend.

This is quite a nice place that serves Italian style food, which may be a welcome variation from the traditional Cuban cuisine. At reasonable prices and in impressive quantities. I have dined there several times. For instance, try the starter with different kind of ham, sausage and cheese, and wait ordering a main course. If you are not really starving,... More
