Just next to the Tryp Centro. This was a great find. Worked perfectly for a romantic tete a tete and the live music really was an unexpected bonus. The pasta was very good, the thin crust pizza outstanding. Dinner for 2 with wine was $30. Couldn't have asked for more.

We had dinner here several times when we were in Panama City 10 years ago. Glad to know that they still are serving up some tasty but basic Italian food. Portions are massive and even though the price has increased somewhat (which is to be expected), it is still a great value. For us, a salad and a main would... More

While staying at the Tryp Hotel, we were looking for a close spot for lunch. Caffe Pomodoro is right down the sidewalk. We are so happy we stopped in! Daniel greeted us and immediately brought ice water, bread and olive oil and balsamic to our table. The bread and oil was very tasty. We ordered some bruschetta Pomodoro and Caprese... More

This cute little cafe is right in the Congrejo district of Panama City, right down the street from my hotel. I was in the mood for a pizza and had read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. I walked up to a little window off the main street where you can order and was greeted by one of the... More

Just arrived at our hotel in Panama City and we were really hungry. This Italian restaurant offered a great menu and great service. We had gorganzola bruschetta, caprese salad, spinach and ricotta cannelloni and lasagna. THIS IS A NOT MISS RESTAURANT NEXT TO THE TRYP HOTEL PANAMA CENTRO!

I've never had a complaint eating at this restaurant. There is a nice atmosphere and the service is good. I have ordered various dishes and they have all been very good. The (made right there) bread service with their mix of olive oil and balsamic vinegar is delicious and I love it!. Very good sauces, the lasagna is amazing, very... More

Went with friends for late dinner Saturday night. Had the Margherita pizza, spinach cannelloni & calemari. The server was anxious to take our order but then didn't come back to check on us, never offered wine, desert & had to ask 3 people for more water. The fid was mediocre at best. The pizza did not have fresh sliced mozzarella... More

While on vacation we decided to try out this restaurant as it was recommended to us. I am sooo glad we went there. I could not believe the atmosphere as there were actually three different areas we could eat in. There was the wine bar, the cafe and the outdoor courtyard. We decided on the courtyard and had an awesome... More

The gnocci and other pasta are very good. A little oasis between the big buildings. Depending on who serves you, the service can be nice. Good location too.
