Great variety of wines by the glass, good pasta, good service

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... read 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

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

This is a nice place which was near our hotel. We ended up eating there 4 or more times due to its nice ambience and good food. We enjoyed the pizza, salads and some of the pastas. The indoor courtyard is pleasant and the staff is accommodating. I probably would not go out of my way to eat here but... More

We were looking for an open restaurant on New Year's Eve and happened to find The Wine Bar. Were pleasantly surprised to find great food in an Italian restaurant in Panama. The seafood linguini was among the best I have had and the pizza was also delicious. Charming and helpful waitstaff.
