Had not been here for about 20 years, but I'm really glad they continue serving one of the best pasta in San Salvador. The place is located in a nice zone, and the restaurant is clean, nicely illuminated and ample. No overcrowding which is nice for me. Also, it is quiet, just some ambient music that allows for conversation. Love... More

the first time I went to this restaurant I wasn't really impress about the location or the décor...but as soon as we order and I smell the fresh cilantro, basil and other herbs on my appetizers I fell in love of this place, now every time I go to El Salvador I make sure to have a dinner there...awesome place,...

You should try Basil & Tomato Pizza, or Anchovies & Mushrooms Pizza. If you ask for a beer, it comes with a delicious mini-pizza. I have tried pasta, it's good, but the pizza is unbeatable. Service is so-so, but you will forget that once you try the food.

I have gone several times, the pizzas take a while to come to the table but the wait is worth it. I would go again

This cozy little restaurant has been one of the go to places for a couple of generations. The food is as authentic old school italian as you'll get in El Salvador. The lasagna is magnificent and the pizzas are definitely worth a try. The pasta is all homemade, so you'll notice a big difference while eating here. Recommended: lasagna, pizzas,... More
