We have been coming to Aruba for 18 years with a seasoned crowd of discerning foodies and we all agree that Anna Maria's is one of Aruba's best. Hidden away on a quiet residential street, the backyard ambiance of Chris and Anna Maria's home is elegant, relaxing, quiet and a welcome respite from some of Aruba's other well-known but crowded...

Having had two good experiences in the past, we returned to Anna-Maria's, only to have an awful evening. The $64 pitcher of sangria was terrific, as were the meatball appetizers, but it was all downhill from there.The service was a disaster. We arrived on time for our reservation, but frustratingly our entrees were not served for one hour and forty... More

My husband and I are Aruba fanatics. After our 2-3 weeks yearly visits we can't wait to go back to everything fabulous that Aruba has to offer, including great restaurants. Anna Maria Restaurant is certainly not one of them. Infact, I can give a dozen raving reviews to deserving restaurants in Aruba, but this review is a warning on many... More

This was a very pleasant dining experience. The service went above and beyond and their willingness to accommodate any request was a plus. One drawback is that it is difficult to find. I suggest a test run for anyone who wants to be on time for their reservations. The food is coined to order so one should be prepared to... More

Recently had the pleasure of dining at Anna Maria's in Aruba. I was there with a group of 10 friends and we all had a fantastic time. Maria, Christian, and the rest of the staff make you feel at home in the lovely setting at their private home. We have been there before and once again we totally enjoyed our... More

My wife and I have been visiting Aruba for the last 8 years and only heard of Anna-Maria's Restaurant this recent trip. We read the reviews and actually considered not keeping our reservation given the negativity of these reviews. But we still "took a chance" and our experience was out of this world. We endeavored on this trip to try... More

I had to pleasure of visiting "Ana Maria's" during my annual trip to Aruba. This is a smaller, more quaint "ristorante," located in Noord on the island of Aruba. At first, you would never know it was a restaurant from the outside. I was referred here by a friend. He and his family had enjoyed it so much they took... More

We were able to watch the sunset and have an incredible pasta dinner. The table beside us ordered spaghetti which they made the sauce right at the table-open flamed! My daughter loved watching it!

Let me start with saying that Anna Maria's is a unique and special place. Yes, it is in their backyard of their home, but it reminds me of when I lived in Italy--It still amazes me how they open up their home to welcome us in for dinner. Anna cooks authentic Italian cuisine..this is not a typical pizzeria or your... More

We dined at this restaurant on our first visit to Aruba several years ago. After finding the unmarked house we expected to have the same experience we had had several years earlier. Not to be. We found that this is not the best Italian restaurant on the island as word has it. Highly overpriced for very ordinary dinners. Will not... More
