Close to Isla Verde, small cozy Italian Restaurant; service was top notch, waiter was very attentive. I enjoyed my "huge" piece of veal. Only negative: Needs more garlic in the sauce! I love smelling garlic when I walk into an Italian Restaurant. And, the rolls served were a bit small and I wouild have appreciated garlic bread. We Italians love... More

Our concierge, Nestor, at Intercontinental, sent us here since we were in the mood for real Italian food. Everything was so delicious! Not a drop of anything left on our plates! Would highly recommend and we will be back!

My in-laws took us to this restaurant during a trip to San Juan in February. They had visited this restaurant several times beforehand and highly recommended it. We really enjoyed our meals, overall. I had a veal dish that I loved. The wine was also very good. We would definitely go back again!

You want to remember you are on island time. Service can be slow some times. Tuesday all pastas are $10. The food is great.

We visit this restaurant at least once a month and their lamb chops are among the best we ever had. We usually walk over on Thursdays when the wine is half price. Always friendly service, soothing background music, good food. And if you drive, they have valet parking.

As much as we enjoyed Il Nonno on our annual PR visit over the last few years, this trip it was a huge disappointment on all levels. After being seated we had to remind the waiter that we had no silverware. Speaking of waiting, the wait staff consisted of one waiter and one bus person which converted to very slow... More

I went Saturday night, it was easy. Services was slow at the beginning but then they kept the pace. We ordered the main dish because it was a little late, so decided to skip the appetizers, they brought us some bread. Apparently home made, but just two pieces one for each person. A recommendations would be to place at least... More

Four of us enjoyed our dinner at Il Nonno in Isla Verde. We dined on Saturday evening at 8:00, and were surprised by how few diners were in the restaurant at that time. But the lack of other diners increased our dining pleasure in that our service was excellent and very attentive. Our meal started with appetizers of grilled sausage,... More
