I've never had a better experience in a restaurant. The location is perfect. The services is perfect. The food is perfect. The ambient is perfect. Price is affordable. If you are looking for the perfect WOW romantic place, this is it! I suggest dining in the outside, even more romantic! Definitely not my last time dining here. Bon appetit !!!

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. The pasta was perfect, their marinara sauce is perfect. My husband had a variation of Fettucini Alfredo Primavera. Huge portions, you may want to share an entree. Good wines and desserts.

We were not impressed with this place. While the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice and the wait staff were nice, the Italian food was so-so and a bit pricey for our taste.

We just happened upon this place and turned out to be an awesome taste of Italy. We got the seafood salad, seafood soup, and black pasta with (you guessed it) more seafood! Tender calamari, clams, shrimp, muscles, all done perfect. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend Awesome server (Rodolfo)!

So the next night we went here and REALLY enjoyed it. Probably not low calorie. Dishes in yummy sauces, etc. Very tasty!! Loved the romantic courtyard dining. If we went back to PR... More
