Excellent Italian cuisine! Great service. The meat sauce is incredible. Lasagna like you normally only get from your relative's home. Highly recommend.

Great place to eat if you are in the mood for Italian food while in San Juan. They have a good selection of seafood dishes, as well. I had a half portion of seafood risotto, which was delicious, and definitely enough food. (That said, I did start with a caprese salad, which was also great and had a very fresh... More

Atmosphere and staff were great. Filet minion risotto was fantastic along with the Caesar salad with homemade dressing. No complaints. Will return next time we are in San Juan. We visited in the recommendation of a Captain on a Carnival cruise ship who stated he ate there frequently. We were not disappointed.
