This is a quiet little place a block off the square in old San Juan, and you have to look for it. It is worth the search ! The fillet mignon w/ gorganzola was so tender you didn't need a knife. My wife's seafood pasta dish had all of the various seafood done perfectly. The service was first rate, and... More

If you don't know where this is, you might miss it. Great Italian food, all prepared fresh, including the pasta. Staff is very knowledgeable. Not a lot of meal options, but enough to choose from. It's not an Olive Garden! Well worth finding.

Excellent italian food and great service. Fresh pastas and handmade pizza. Servings are big, so everything is good to share. Excellent, excellent seafood soup. Save some room for dessert!

We stopped by early evening. Nice decor. Good service with good straightforward Italian food. We all had different basic pastas as well as the minestrone soup. All were solidly good.

Located in the heart of beautiful Old San Juan. Atmospheric and cozy… Great food. Good wines (limited list, but good choices at good prices). And excellent and friendly service. We shared an excellent calamari fritti as a starter. Followed by linguine alla pescatora (with assorted seafood); fettuccine with scallops, porcini mushroom in a creamy saffron sauce; and pappardelle pasta alla... More

My Favorite Dish. On the menu until 4pm, so don't be late! EXCELLENT Host and Staff. They will go out of their way for you if needed. Great Atmosphere! I am their biggest Ravioli Fan. After 4pm No Four Cheese. Complete Italian Menu. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

When my two children and my husband tell me my arancini and risotto are much better than the one we ate in this restaurant, and me being a doctor and just a foodie, I guess the food is not to die for. The filet mug in risotto had microscopic and scarce meat and not a lot of flavor!
