We were a group of 15 and they handled our individual requests very well. Fish was excellent and many said they enjoyed the pasta dishes too. Good wine list.

Delicious, traditionally-prepared Italian food. Attentive service and well-designed interior. It's in the Zona Rosa, and near the Sheraton.

The level of service, the quality of the food and the ambience far outweigh the prices, which aren't very high. I would recommend anyone in the mood for some amazing italian to give it a try!

I love the atmosphere of this restaurant and the food is really good too! The prices are great for the good quality that you get. I recommend the pizzas, they are delicious!! Although all items in the menu are good, I am addicted to their pizza which is made in their brick oven and has a delicious thin crust. We... More

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
