Great food and view! I would recommend ordering your main course when you order your appetizers, service was a little slow b/c we waited to order our main course.

We visit Aruba every year for the past 12 years and this was my first time to try this restaurant. Like everyone says you can't beat the atmosphere. Stunning. Food is good, have had better Italian on the island, however, the staff and service was great. A lot of the items on menu were covered with white out. What? I... More

Visit this place during the day, take some pictures and book your dinner on a outdoor table and if it is full moon time you won't miss the opportunity, it is the perfect scenario for a romantic dinner with a terrific view.

Year after year we return to Aruba, know the island well, know the resturants very well, yet only one calls our hearts and our appetites with such strength. Rarely do you find a resturant in such a perfectly beautiful location, with such great food. Our party dined on the calimari, Caesar 's salad, lasagna, and unbelievable sauté shrimp, plus two...

My sister said this was a must when we went to Aruba. Thank goodness, that we went there for lunch instead of spending too much on a terrible dinner. We had a seafood pasta. The noodles were chewy - just shy of crunchy - with what tasted like a watered-down diced tomatoes poured over it. We split this, had a... More

I go to Aruba every year but never tried this trainwreck of a restaurant until recently. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation but were told to go to the bar and wait to be called while the terrace that we requested was almost completely empty! Why???? They did this to every single person who walked in the door... More

Best restaurant view I can recall. If you are looking for a chain restaurant atmosphere and speed, this is not the place. My family got a little restless at first, but once I explained it was different, they understood and we proceeded to have a wonderful time. The food was great. Drinks were nice. Dessert was yummy and the presentation... More

This was a beautiful Italian restaurant with phenomenal views. If you eat here you should definitely come early for the sunset views and happy hour specials. We ate here with another couple and their son. We had cocktails at the bar and watched the world cup while the sun set. The owner saw us taking pictures and was incredibly nice... More

Highly, highly recommended. We went to Aruba 10 years ago and had dinner two nights in a row. Had to go back again during this visit. Food is fantastic, breathtaking sunset views, alfresco eating. Service was impeccable.

I've visited Aruba and La Trattoria several times. This trip was a girls trip. La Trattoria in terms of scenery is by far very beautiful. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Our group was able to sit outside on the patio. In terms of service, our experience goes down hill from there. It took forever to get our food.... More
