The best Eggplant Parmesan ever! Service is 5 star. Beautiful deco and great sunset view. Just happened to find it a wonderful discovery.

We are locals here and we live this place. It is fantastic and the food is delicious😊 we come here at least 2 times a month and we always have great service and a great experience. I 100% recommend coming here if u are on vacation. Even though it is a little pricy it is worth the money

We are staying at the San Luis and didn't want to go out for dinner. This restaurant shows professionalism from service to food quality. My wife had the lobster lasagna and I had the lamb shank. Both were cooked to perfection. Presentation was excellent also.

Four adults and three teens had terrific dinner in this upscale restaurant. Shared bruscetta and antipasti appetizers followed by terrific meals of spaghetti bolonese, chicken parmigiana, fish, and pizza. Shared very good bottle of Valpolicella recommended by Priscilla. Finished with several shared desserts with coffee, tea and espresso. Highly recommended.

I was a little nervous about a last minute party of 20 looking for a business dinner. We left a message on the machine letting them know we were coming. Italian is their specialty.

First time at this location. Our waiter, Stefan, was great! Great view, right by the pool! The pizza we had as a starter was delish. The pasta was prepared wonderfully.
