This was our first trip to Cuba. We of course took to trip adviser to scout out the local restaurants in the area from our hotel. We read the reviews and they are spot on. We don't want to sound like a broken record, read the reviews! You won't be disappointed!

We shared a dessert , similar to a faux tiramisu , delicious !!! We were offered complimentary rum before we... More

This little Italian restaurant has great food, service and atmosphere. We went twice recently with friends. On one occasion we shared a selection of pizzas and the other a selection of pastas - all great. There is a lovely rooftop deck which is a hidden gem at night especially & a nice outside patio on the ground floor. Highly recommended... More

Please note that the chef likes it salty! We went twice and the pasta, although excellent, was quite salty both times. Reservations are recommended as the places is quite in demand. Wines are pricey and will likely cost as much as your food, but since those are reasonable it turns out ok. If you like cocktails with your food then... More

Very good Italian food, excellent service (special thanks to Flor), owner present and looking at every client, live singers (classical - operas). Choice of wines could be more diversified and less expensive. A place where we go regularly.
