Wow!

A little off the beaten path, located in the backyard of what looks like a beautiful home, Anna-Maria's is definitely worth the trip. The food is Italian with a little bit of a Latin twist, the Sangria is definitely worth having. Don't fill up on soup or salad as the entree portion is generous. I... read more

Out-of-the-way and hard to find. Best to take a taxi to get there but well worth it. Husband and wife run the restaurant out of their home. Feels more like having dinner at a friends house then at a restaurant. Food was delicious, well prepared and done just right. A little pricey but well worth it. Will definitely be back... More

This was my favorite restaurant during my visit to Aruba and in my opinion the best Italian on the island (coming from a NYC Italian). The restaurant is located in the chef’s backyard and reminded me of a piazza in Italy. My boyfriend and I thought that the food was amazing minus the wonder bread at the start of the... More

This restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere, soft music, a water fountain, very pretty patio. The food is absolutely delicious. Very fresh flavors. The waitstaff are so polite and attentive. The portions were just right as was the service. It is must if you are in Aruba!

This is our second visit to Anna-Maria's and this time we brought our family. While researching other restaurants on the island I reviewed some of the comments made here since our last visit back in August of 2014. I was shocked to see some of the negative reviews that Anna-Maria's received. It almost made me change my mind about going.... More

Anna-Maria's was recommended to us by my friend's aunt who had been to Aruba a few years back. She told gave us the number and email address so that we could contact them. When they emailed back, we decided to make a reservation. They replied with directions to THEIR HOUSE which included such things as turn at Wendy's, go over... More

First things first: the food is definitely ok. Nothing special, but absolutely not bad. Service was speedy - even too speedy sometimes :-) (like when wanting to wait the glasses when they were still half full, and bringing out the bill before even finishing the coffee). What's really (and I mean _really_) mind blowing is price/quality. I'm more than happy... More

Anna Maria's is a small restaurant hidden away. The atmosphere is wonderful and the wait staff were very helpful and attentive. The menu was primarily traditional Italian cuisine. The food was very fresh. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the desserts (tiramisu and profiteroles). Prices were fair. The staff even called a cab to take us back to our hotel....

It's our 5th night in Aruba and so far every place we've eaten has been good, but nothing has been fabulous... until tonight. Anna-Maria's was excellent! Our taxi driver got lost... it really is kinda hard to find if you don't know where you're going. We had their homemade meatballs and bruschetta for appetizers - both delicious! For entrees -...
