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... More

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.

Caution before you come here. The overpriced boiled pasta, ridiculously high prices and inexperienced staff will make you wish you just opted for McDonald's instead. Half the things on the menu are 'no longer served.' Plus you have the opportunity of being served by some of the rudest most stupidest people to ever deal with customers. I suggest going to... More

Even though we where somewhat challenged by the language/ordering, we were in no way mislead about the excellent cuisine! The service was great. The food exceeded our expectations, & they even catered to the kids! This was the most memorable restaurant on our trip! Highly recommended & well managed!

We were actually on our way to another nearby restaurant when we attracted to the crowd and decor of this smallest street side Italian restaurant. In fact we were in Panama City for only four nights and had dinner here twice. Both nights we started with the Neapolitan Salad, which is by far one of the best salads we have... More

Looking for someplace for Sunday dinner outside of the Marriott Hotel in Panama city. This was just about a block away; an easy walk. Good food; good value for the quality and service.

Beautifully decorated and highly accessible restaurant. Loved the food and the service. Reasonable priced and every dish I had was awesome. Will definitely go there again.

I can't tell you about the food because we sat down but waited ages for a menu even though the restaurant was fairly empty. Then someone dumped some small bottles of Perrier on our table which we did not order and when we asked that they be removed the waitress walked away. Finally, we walked out and were chased down...

We looked for a really good italian restaurant in the city and this place was suggested by the hotel we stayed in. We got there early, first actually, so it was a bit "cold" in that regard. Service was very attentive and we both enjoyed the pastas we had. I would say it is nothing exceptional though, well done within... More

Not an inexpensive option but the price justifies the food and atmosphere. Ordered the Neapolitan Salad and the Al Capriccio Pasta with Penne and it was all delicious. They also offer a whole wheat pasta option for the pasta menu which I thought was a nice option to have.
