The service is great. We shared a big pizza and it was good. The natural juices were also very good.

Best rustic brick oven pizza! The pasta is good too. Very nice decor and ambiance. One of my favorites restaurants in El Salvador, and a classic for me.

Not cheap, but less expensive than other italian restaurants in San Salvador. I always order grilled octopus, and my wife spaghetti Bolognesa. The pizzas are good too. Service was just OK, sometimes a little slow. The only negative was one time I asked for the bill, we waited 20 minutes, we have already paid, and the bill was never ready,... More

Did not expect such good food at very reasonable prices. The zucchini carpaccio with mushrooms, capers, thinly sliced onions, lemon, olive oil and Parmesan was excellent. Fish in parchment with shrimp was also very tasty and not over cooked. Wine list not extensive but at very good prices. Nice decoration and very good service. I would recommend this restaurant.

Excellent food, rich flavors, and lovely presentation. From the decor to the service, this place was worth it. The prices were very reasonable, service was fast, efficient and friendly. I was happy to see so many choices on the menu. Everyone in my party ordered a different meal, and not one person was disappointed. We actually spent the rest of... More

I really enjoyed sitting in the terrace at night. The decor of the terrace is charming, making you feel like you are in a small town in Italy! The salads and pizza are very tasty! The dressing on the salad I tried had honey in it, which made it very savory.

The first thing you notice when you walk in, is the wall-art it is definitely something out of the ordinary, in a good way. But starting there it is a good experience, staff is very friendly and attentive. Food (at least the steak and pizzas) were all very good and reasonably priced. If you are looking for a good Italian... More

This is a famous reataurant but i believe it is very plain for what they offer. Food is ok, nothing amazing. But service is terrible and extremely slow. I would come back only if i have to as the location is convenient.

On a recent business trip, we stayed down the street at the Sheraton Presidente so it was nice to find a great Italian restaurant within walking distance. The place was beautiful inside and the food was really good. The service was a bit slow at times, but overall I would definitely eat there again. I cannot have dairy products and... More
