Personality of the owner was super. Italian food is very good. The place is a hidden gen and doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside is fun; located on a creek. Its further than indicated from their road signs.

Our last few visits to Boquete, we did make it here as they were closed the days we wanted to visit. This trip we checked with them upon arrival to find out their schedule. It is a neat little place, almost like going underground and backs up to a stream or water fall. I couldn't see as it was dark... More

Authentic Italian food in a remarkably gorgeous and exotic setting. This charming Sicilian restaurant will shock you, because it is so authentically Italian/Sicilian and located in Palo Alto...a few minutes drive north of Boquete town. The owner and his family welcome you to this little gem beside the waterfall and treat you to fabulous homemade specialties. The wines are all... More

I had the opportunity of visiting this cozy restaurant in the mountains of Boquete, the have one of the best traditional Italian pizza I have ever tried, the restaurant is just by a beautiful creek that made a harmonically sound combination with some nice jazz from the restaurant. a great selection of wines and rums and delicious Garlic Bread.

The food is great and the ambiance is fine. No complaints in that department. However, if you do want to dress up and wear high heels this is not the place to go. Their access is a slope full of rocks and when it rains its slippery. Once inside you forget how hard you had to try and avoid falling,... More

We had a late dinner at Il Pianista and enjoyed every minute of it. The food is delicious, authentic and filling. A little pricey for Boquete, but worth it. The setting by the river is beautiful during the day or at night. It's a very special spot, secluded and romantic.

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.

This small and attractive restaurant is located just next to a river and in the entrance of the Pianista trail of Boquete, it's about five minutes by car from the center. We always look for this place as the first choice for dinner, food is very good, I love the pasta and my kids the pizza, prices are reasonable and... More
