Mediocre food

We didn't find the service as bad as the other reviewers have said but the food here really isn't better than average and the pizzas are not very Italian. There are so many better places to eat. The band was great and you can sit outside it you want which seemed very pleasant

Italian restaurant, quite large. We sat outside, service is good if not quite as friendly as elsewhere. Really good live band performs here. Very reasonably priced and makes a change from the offerings of some of the other restaurants. I had calzone and my wife had a pizza that she couldn't finish - so we had a slice each for... More

We ate lunch here on two occasions whilst sightseeing in Old Havana. We sat outside and enjoyed people watching as locals and tourists passed by. Although mainly catering to tourists, we were impressed by the general quality of the food and the generous portions. The staff were friendly and efficient. We did not make a reservation but we ate quite... More

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! Nice to sit... 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
