“Denny's style resto with a wine list”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

A part of the Intercon hotel, they offer an Italian-oriented menu that is solid, but hardly imaginative. The wait-staff, however, were superb and customized my order extensively without complaint. If you are on a bit of a budget, and speak no Spanish, try this place.

“For me it was just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I ate for lunch on a Sunday and took advantage of the pleasant outdoor seating. Service was good. The restaurant had a steady steam of patrons. But, I have to admit that the pasta just didn't do it for me. I thought the sauce was fresh but I just didn't care for the noodles (I had a spaghetti). Maybe the locals like it, but I'm accustomed to better.

“Excellent location and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The food is excellent. The pasta selection is great and serving portions are generous. The locale ambience is relaxing. The area that the restaurant lacks more is in the service department. The staff is slow and unresponsive. If you have over an hour for lunch it might be an excellent idea. Just don't go if you have limited time.

“Gnocchi with pesto sauce was bland”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for lunch. Got a table right away. Service was fast. But US$20 for bland gnocchi in pesto Sauce is very dissapointing
