Italian with great service

All thought I did not want Italian I was interested in the talk about this place. Greeted quickly. Seated quickly. Met by a very attentive waiter. Although he missed that I am gluten free. It was ok not an allergy just a preference. He helped with suggestions. I ordered the gnocchi. Simple but... read more

We've eaten here yearly when we visit Puerto Rico. We keep coming back because the food is excellent- high quality ingredients, well prepared, with huge portions - plus a fine wine list. Given that, the service can be a bit inattentive & sloppy ("forgot" our vegetable side order this year), the tables are very close together, and the room-while very... More

I love risotto and without a doubt their's is the best by far. It has BIG chunks of lobster and it is as creamy and cheesy as can be. They also have wonderful lobster tails in a honey truffle sauce (8 oz. each!) that my grandson devoured completely. Have been going there for years and the food is always impeccable.... More

Francisco, our waiter, was amazing! He provided our best dining experience of the week, and made for a very memorable meal. The food here is fantastic! Definitely worth trying if you are staying at or near the resort. Every staff member was extremely helpful and very polite. Overall, this was one of the best dining experience we've ever had!

Although as others have stated it is a bit over priced. However, we ate there twice during our 7 days in Puerto Rico and enjoyed our meals tremendously each time. I had swordfish puttanesca and the veal chop Milanese. The fish was fresh, firm and the first time with puttanesca sauces. It was simply outstanding. The veal was tender and... More

Right in the lobby of the El San Juan. Excellent service; excellent Italian food. Probably on the expensive side.

This restaurant has a very romantic and cozy atmosphere although it was extremely cold. I had the twin lobster tails in a honey truffle oil. They were cooked perfectly and delicious. The lobster came with a side of pasta which was cold upon arrival (probably due to the air conditioning being set on 55F ?). We also had the eggplant... More

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.
