"Amazing" food and service. Such grace and charm. They made it so special for my husband's birthday...singing and special dessert. The servers were so attentive. Truly an enjoyable experience.

I was talking to another restaurant owner in Playa and he told me that Ileana went back to Italy to look after her ill mother.
