When served the freshest, tastiest food by the Tina Turner of Bocas you are guaranteed the best experience. When in Boquete I never miss a meal here.

Have eaten here several times. Portion sizes are large and beautiful, not to mention very tasty. Family owned and operated. Wine selection that is adequate. Love the river running right outside the windows.

Friends had recommended Il Pianista, and it was even more than we had expected. The food was unbelievably delicious, and the building is a lovely stone structure. Service was friendly and very good (the owner is the chef and his wife serves. Great team.)
