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

Enjoyed dinner here the first night of my stay. Decor is beautiful and sofisticated. Waiter staff was very pleasant. We opted for the 2 course meal special which included soup or salad and an entree selection of about 6 choices. We ordered the 6oz filet mignon and ceasar salad. Dish all came out with a side of pasta. Food had... More

I'm skeptical when the concierge recommends a restaurant in their own hotel but I shouldn't have been. My husband and I dine in many Italian restaurants and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was also delightful.
