The ambiance of the restaurant is very beautiful and intimate. The food is pretty good -- except I had the filet which was one of the worst filets I have ever had. The place is pricey.

There is nothing bad to be said about this restaurant. Service, food, ambience were all very good. This was our third time in the restaurant and it has been the same every time. An enjoyable meal was had by all.

We ate here on a Friday night after a full day of sightseeing and beach time, not wanting to go out of the hotel. We enjoyed the décor and the service-very friendly and professional without being overly intrusive. The menu is pricey, but with a bottle of wine, appetizer and two entrees, we felt the total check was no more... More

I have been dining at this restaurant inside the El San Juan hotel for more years than I care to admit to. It has always been the go to Italian restaurant in the San Juan area because of the quality of the food and the service. I was there with some of my family in late January. The food was... More

I love this restaurant that is located in the El San Juan Hotel and Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is so elegant with its white sparkly decor and romantic banquettes. The food is another reason I like to eat here. Fantastic pasta and traditional Italian dishes served by highly professional staff that make you feel right at home.... More

Great food but when they said "semi formal" attire on a Saturday night we were a little ticked. We went and there were families there in shorts and sneakers. I would have worn flats!

My wife had stayed at the El Juan Hotel 40 years ago with her best friend. She wanted to return to the hotel on our trip to relive past memories. That meant a reservation at the Piccola last night. Trying to interpret the Italian as best I could, I was unable to find good ol' spaghetti and meatballs. But I... More

We ate here during our stay at El San Juan resort. The service was top notch from the moment we walked in. I order the veal chop on the recommendation of our waiter. It was the best I ever had. My wife had the lobster ravioli and it was decent. I am not a big pasta eater so decent is... More

The food was very good but definitely not worth the price paid. The portions were adequate but again the price. Service was excellent but again the place just had a snooty vibe.

The snapper special was excellent. Large portion and very filling. I don't know everything they cooked with the fish, but it was very tasty. The snapper was so good, I thought their take on tiramisu would be special as well. It wasn't. Way to creamy, and frankly didn't even taste like tiramisu. Great selection of wines by the glass, and... More
