“Divine food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

An intimate Italian restaurant offering gourmet foods - fantastic service with a personal touch. Nice modern yet warm decor.
Parking may be a bit of a problem.

“Special place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

You always know you're at a special place when the owner (Stefano) comes over to chat & tell you about the evening's specials. Needless to say, I didn't spend much time looking at the menu. Things got started w/ a small bowl of hearty lentil soup.

Next on the table was simply the most delicious eggplant parmigiana I've ever had; the sautéed variety, not fried & accompanied by a tomato sauce that was just divine. My main dish was an amazing linguine w/ fresh langostinos & a light sauce w/ vegetables that went beautifully.

Last on the list was a great expression of a traditional tiramisu washed down w/ a tasty limoncello. If you're looking for traditional italian in bustling Panama City, this is your place. Can't wait to go back!

“Good taste and affordable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

With a good list of Italian wines and short but delicious menu, you can expect also personal attention from his owner. You gotta have reservation if you want assure your table.

“Top notch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Great service, awesome cuisine and a wonderful setting. We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we returned the next night for the Osso Buco special (Friday nights). It was just as good as all of the other dishes, pasta dishes were cooked perfectly, the Caprese Salad was fantastic and the carpaccio was second to none. The wine list is limited but offered excellent quality at reasonable prices. We would return at the first chance. Very small venue and if someone brings small children (as was the case in our second visit) it can
