We ate here for dinner. My husband had spaghetti with spicey meatballs and I had the raviolis. Neither one was good. They had no taste at all. Even the bread was dense, breaking apart when you try to dip in olive oil and balsamic. Sangria was good. Service was good.

This little Italian place is pretty good. Prices are fair and as my wife can tell you... The wine pours are great! The selection of wines is about the best on the island and if you are a wino like her, you will be eating here more than once!

Service was great, bread stale, tasty Pinot Grigo, fabulous calamari, ridiculous seafood del mar - no flavor sauce, tasted and looked like frozen mixed seafood in a bag. So all in all a glass of wine, a little people watching and some squid ......but skip having dinner

We visited this restaurant only once during our stay. As it was a particularly humid night we chose to sit inside where we decided the AC would be our saving grace however this was not the case. Perhaps even warmer than outside we almost over heated whilst eating our meal. The service however was good and the portion sizes acceptable.... More

It is not that amazing except that compared to so many of the others it is one of the few options. Staff as so many on the island are quite surly.

The fish was slightly salty and came as a fillet which was quite nice. pasta was quite good. tacos were delicious. Only negative was that it was quite pricey compared with Hidalgo... More

We went here with our kids to have a pizza. The pizza itself was very nice... and the bowls of pasta they serve are plentiful. Nevertheless, there are a few things that were not great: 1. I dont like being served soft drinks out of a big bottle. If you are paying restaurant prices for a soft drink they ought... More
