Great food

The food was definitely A+ but it was very noisy and we had to insist on being seated on the side since it the other patrons were extremely loud. The shrimp were huge and the Chicken Parm was one of the best I ever had

Recommended by our hotel concierge,we made a reservation and arrived on time. The hostess walked us into the main room which was lovely however several table were filled with loud, loud diners. We were there to talk to each other and would never have been able to hear each other. So we refused the table and asked to be seated... More

We dined here for dinner with three young children. I would not recommend this. You can probably tell by the pictures that this is not an environment for small children. The food is good and the price is what I would expect for the hotel but I felt they were not happy with our young children. I'm guessing they thought... More

Highly attentive staff. Food is delicious and you should request extra guava butter for your bread--it is amazing! Pricey menu

Every time my husband and I travel to San Juan, we eat at this restaurant. The food is always incredible and the service is amazing. I don't have enough good things to say about the food and the staff. The decor is also beautiful. NOTE- THE RESTAURANT IS LOCATED AT THE EL SAN JUAN RESORT AND CASINO!

My husband took me for our anniversary dinner last night and we had an amazing experience! The food was delicious and the service was great. A very friendly waiter named Angel made sure we had a great time. Very attentive and cordial. The food was fresh and had good taste. Loved everything about it!! Definitely going back!!

We should have done our research before going we know. The staff was attentive and mostly friendly although we began to feel uncomfortable about reactions to our attire. We weren't slobs but definitely under-dressed. Entrees don't come with sides so be prepared for paying more than just the price listed for an entree if you want a full meal.

We always eat at La Piccola Fontana at least once during our stay. This time we found an entirely new menu. I did not think the changes were for the better. The caprese salad left a lot to be desired. The mozzarella was not great and the tomatoes were in chunks instead of slices. We had to ask for cheese... More

We wanted to eat Italian...at the suggestion of the R C concierge we walked a few blocks to the El San Juan hotel...dining at its finest...smallish place but nicely decorated...I had veal parm...my wife had shrimp pinot grigio over linguini...both were outstanding...the service was perfect & Matteo made our anniversary dinner so special

Ate here when this restaurant first opened up, and have been back several times, however this trip was very disappointing, the pasta was hard, the veal was not tender and very overcooked- very disappointed as this used to be on par with Italian restaurants in NYC- now it is just an overpriced average at best dining experience
