I don't mind paying for a great meal but here the food was fair and the prices were high. For example Shrimp fra diavlo was $49 and it wasn't great. However Service was excellent.

This wonderful restaurant was full of energy and happy waiters. The food is amazing. Several pasta and meat choices. Great apitizers. The veal chop is a favorite. Reservations a must. Close seating proximity to other tables. Service was good, the resaurant was filled. Dessert menu is varied.

This is a great place to bring a date and have an amazing time. I had dinner with a friend and it was very nice. The food was great and the service even better. The server was very knowledgeable on the menu. Will recommend it!

The special was beef tenderloin ravioli with truffle butter sauce, and it was great. Wonderful menu and great wine selection. The were able to seat us with no reservation and we were very happy we tried it. Will be returning every time we are in San Juan!!!

Food was decsent, but did not justify the high prices in this very cramped and loud restaurant. You pay for the location in the El San Juan hotel. We had much better, more reasonably priced food elsewhere.

We went on a friday night, arrived just in time for our reservation and they sited us immediately. They have one of the best services that you could find in any restaurant in San Juan. The food was very good but not great considering what you pay. homemade pasta is a plus.

Very busy evening with a large private party going on. Staff did a wonderful job of muting by moving us and in addition to soft music compensated with excellent service. A grouper proven ale and veal scallopini with porcini mushrooms were nicely prepared preceded by an arugula salad with marinated tomatoes and dried prosciutto. The evening came together with a...
