Great find tied to Pomodoro

This was one of the best finds on our trip to Panama. The Wine Bar was just around the corner from our hotel. When we went there, we didn't realize it was tied to Pomodoro which has very good ratings on TripAdvisor. To be honest, we probably wouldn't have went to Pomodoro either because from the... read more

The date says June 2015 because there is not an option for "very often". Wine bar is next to Pomodoro, so it really depends on one's mood but if it just to catch up with a friend, or relax after a day's work, or to have fun on a Friday's night, this is the place to go... of course, if... More

The wine bar has a very pleasant atmosphere, with lots of bricks, wine labels on the laminated table tops and all the decorations you'd expect to find in a little Italian trattoria. I was pleasantly by the variety on the menu. They had pizza, but they also had a great variety of pasta dishes, including a couple of specials. The... More

The neighborhood isn't the best in the world, but this was a great find for us as we are staying at the Riu Plaza, next to which is basically nothing except KFC/Pizza Hut. The pizza here was pretty good (I give it an 8/10, crust could have been a little crisper), but our Pinot Grigio was perfect. Two medium pizzas... More

I had been to the Wine Bar a few times before and always thought the food and drinks were great but this last time was a bad experience. I had ordered a reasonably priced pizza and my friends had ordered a lasagna and the other a seafood pizza. Before the food came we were brought bread that was mixed and... More

We ended up eating here three times, service was good to great, food was good (salads to pizza to pasta -- tried them all and no complaints). The best sangria I had in Panama -- and I had quite a bit! Reasonable prices. My favourite was the caprese salad and the bread basket with the oil/balsamic for dipping. Husband said... More

Have eaten at the wine bar many times - the food is aways great and the price reasonable. Excellent choice for business or pleasure and almost always some live music.

We have eaten there a few times, but last time we left we decided not to return. The first time was fine, it was comfortable and there was a nice view to the passing traffic and the ocean across the street. The food was fine - not great, but passable. The second visit I ordered an individual pizza and it... More

If you're looking for a nice little "off the beaten path" restaurant that really separates you from the outside world... then this is a good choice. It's a completely different and unique Italian ambiance on the inside. Lots of choices to eat but honestly when we walked by the first time, the aroma of the pizza was captivating so we... More
