The restaurant is located in a nice area close to what I would call the financial district/downtown. It is nicely decorated and nice atmosphere. The service was ok, but I was disappointed with the food.The raviolis I order were not fresh, and the sauce had no taste. It is not easy to messed up a pasta and they did. I... More

This is a very pretty, small restaurant in downtown Panama City. The service was both polite and attentive. The food varied from excellent, the eggplant rolatini was among the best I've ever had, to the pasta, excellent but a bit too salty. That said, well worth a visit.

The eggplant specialties are outstanding; eh pasta is very good. We ate there twice for dinner and found it very satisfactory. The atmosphere is upscale and rather intimate. The service is good.

This restaurant is close to our hotel. I love the decoration of this place. Our host had a great customer service. The food was delicious: my husband had a pasta with sea food and olive oil. I ordered Raviolis filled with pumpkin , and my son had a pasta filled with cheese. Everything was great! The strawberry juice so good!.... More

My wife and I had fettuccini Rossini and fettuccini Primavera at Tre Scalini this evening. The sauces were delicious, the pasta was just right, and the service was very good. We recommend this restaurant for those who like good pasta served with good Italian sauces. The prices were roughly $20 per person for the main course including a tip for... More

All the food was homemade and tasted delicious. This is what a good italian should taste like! We were with a group of 8, all dishes were evenly perfect. We tasted each others dishes, because everyone was so enthousiastic about their own dish, we wanted to share!! Service was very good, kept pooring our wine glasses, no long waiting time,... More

Found this place on crawling distance from the hotel. Decided to check it out. They do their best to look, feel, taste posh and good. The food is great, service good, but I do believe a bit overpriced (perhaps not overpriced as this suggests too expensive for not so good food) for local standards. But i don't think you can...

So far the best Italian food in Panama: risotto with seafood and a pesto spaghettini. Also receptive waiters and good service. Not so cheap, food for two plus dessert and a glass of wine by $80.
