Great view!!! Feels like your in Italy!

We booked our reservation at 6:30pm and enjoyed the sunset. It felt like we were in Italy while eating outside. Calamari was excellent and the kids spaghetti bolognese good was good. My chicken alfredo wasn't that good but it wasn't something on their menu. Overall I would recommend this place.

This was my first time eating at La Trattoria. We had a sunset dinner time and it was absolutely incredible. You just wanted to sit back and watch the sun set over the Caribbean because its not something that you get to see everyday. Definitely a special feeling. However, I can't say the same about the food and service. The... More

We have eaten at La Trattoria 2 different times, on two different trips to Aruba and we have had two very different experiences. Our first experience, we were enamored of the view and felt that the food and service were excellent and therefore we made a reservation for our second visit. Unfortunately, the positive experience of our first visit was... More

The group I was with rented out the restaurant for the evening. We were able to take some of the most beautiful pictures at sunset. We had a limited menu, but what we had was wonderful! Servers were very attentive and helpful. Bring a sweater though if you are there in the evening. It can get quite windy.

Good food with an outstanding view. The California Lighthouse is also at this point. This is the farthest you can go on the island.

Our party of 6 had a great time at La Trattoria El Faro Blanco Restaurant. We made reservations via their website and had an excellent outdoor dining experience. Great wine selection and fantastic variety on the menu.

This is our 3rd visit to Aruba and it would not be complete without dinner at La Trattoria El Faro Blanco Restaurant. It has the most beautiful view for sunset and the atmosphere is awesome. It is mostly outdoors with terraced views of Aruba. We made our reservations for 6:30 so we could watch the sunset. We were seated promptly... More

If you're looking for a GREAT sunset, this is the place to be. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a GOOD Italian meal, look somewhere else. My friends and I have enjoyed sunsets at this restaurant for the past 10 years so I feel qualified to submit this review. In my humble opinion the food, service, and prices... More

This place is located at the lighthouse. Spectacular views and a great place to see the sunset while dining. We went in a group of 8. The food was exceptional and pricing was very affordable. Wait staff worked hard to make you feel happy.

I recently stayed in Aruba for two weeks. I had dinner at La Trattoria 3 times. The meals were consistently excellent, especially the Osso Buco. This may be my favorite restaurant in Aruba and is "must" for lovers of great food, great services and a beautiful view, especially at sunset.
