Enjoyed this plaza restaurant/bar for a beverage and a meal from the "italian" menu options....caprese salad was excellent, pasta average....I ordered a racion of cabrito (stewed)...(OK, not exactly Italian I admit) that was quite flavourful but more bones than meat.....great place to relax and people watch, and would not hesitate to order the caprese salad were we to return.
