We walked to this restaurant based on a friend's recommendation and we were not disappointed. The location of the restaurant is a bit sketchy, and last night we walked to the restaurant, and caught a cab when were done. The menu is extensive with tons of choices. We ordered the grilled octopus and it's probably the best pulpa I have... More

It was good, although I have had better experiences before there. The place is lovely and the food was plentyfull. Very low on salt, I guess that is what I missed.

Difficult to find and getting there, but after eaten in the place is worth the effort. Try the chef suggestions, the italian food is their speciality, try the octopus, raviolis and the shrimps with risotto.

Hard to find but well worth it. This Family owned restaurant serves EXCELLENT Italian food. The only thing better is the service. It was second to none. It is located very close to Hotel Colon.
