Very good food, strange service

Went here for dinner one night when this very small restaurant had only two other tables with guests. The food was very good and their pastas homemade. We went with a Caesar salad, the eggplant parm and a fresh pasta with veggies. We enjoyed all of it very much though the service was a bit odd. The... read more

Had the caprese, ricotta ravioli and seafood linguine. All tasted good but not worth it for the price. The seafood linguine was packed with a lot of seafood but for $55 no thank you plus it didn't look like handmade pasta.Service was decent. Good food but way overpriced. We all know the food cost on pasta.

This restaurant was amazing! The only thing the hotel did right was recommend this place. Food was delicious service was even better!!!! The ambiance is perfect for a big group or intimate date night. Thank you for accommodating our crazy group of girls. Francisco was outstanding!!!!

The food was excellent and the portions were a good size ( by American standards). Service was also very good as it rotated between three different waiters. Food is a bit pricey ($40-50) for an entree but on vacation so it was ok.

I dunno, I really liked it. I will say I had the carpaccio and it wasn't entirely to my liking, I prefer it a bit more "meaty" and this was a little mroe "mushy", but that may just be their style. My main course was delicious, as was the dessert and coffee. But for me the best part was the... More

The restaurant itself is very small, and we felt a bit cramped since we were in a big group. My gnocchi was a bit too cheesy and heavy for me, but the rest of the girls in our group loved the food. The staff was also great! See pictures on my blog CandidlyKelly.com

The service took forever. The service not especially friendly. It is a bit pricey for what is served. The pizza was really decent and you can order out and eat by the pool. My family loved that and believe it or not tye take out service was quicker than eat in.

We ate a wonderful Italian dinner here one night on our vacation to San Juan. The service was phenomenol - really enjoyed being pampered for the night. The food we ordered was all home made - I had a veal ravioli that was so delicate & delicious! We sat near the front window & really enjoyed the "people watching". We... More
