“Just okay - nothing spectacular!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2009

Had a pizza. Very thin crust. Was okay. Nothing to write home about. Oudoor seating. Lots of flys. Too busy waving them away with one hand and trying to eat with the other.
On the street, cars and fumes to contend with as well.

“Great thin crust pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2009

Located behind the Renaissance Marina hotel and above Rumba (another great restaurant), Casa Tua serves a great thin crust pizza and a nice assortment of salads and pasta. We shared a pizza and each had the Insalata di Pomadoro (tomatos, balsamic vinegar, basil, garlic and romaine lettuce). The outside deck is covered and surrounds the restaurant. We needed a break from the sun when we were there for lunch so we opted for the A/C. The inside seating was airy and kind of artsy. Great choice for families; children would have several choices on the menu. We would return.

“Great outdoor location, reasonably priced, excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2009

This is great little location on the corner which serves good Itlalian food and pizza. If you like thin crust pizza and a tangy sauce, this is it. Priced well and nice to come to in between your more expensive meals you will encounter. Service was very good and attentive.

“Could make better pasta myself!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2009

My husband and I tried Casa Tua in downtown Oranjestad our first night in Aruba and it was awful. The food was just so bland. We had just had pizza at the airport, so we both tried the pasta. He had the Rigatoni with Shrimp and Vodka and I had the Penne al Pesto. I could have made both dishes myself at home and achieved better taste. We were both completely dissatisfied. It was missing all flavor.

We also had two starters - one a salad, which was fine. It was a typical salad - how can you go wrong with that? We also had a chorizo omelette - which looked like an empanada. However, it was a little burnt on the outside and was extremely dry. I couldn't stomach more than two bites.

All in all - a very bland meal. I wish we had gotten the pizza - anything but the pasta!
