We actually came back here twice the food was so good! Amazing pasta and service, definitely the best ravioli I’ve had. Henry and Nirobi were amazing as well. Beautiful environment and authentic food!

Hostaria is my go to italian restaurant, I enjoy their pasta, risotto, bruschetta and chicken parmigiana! Their outside seating is quite cute in their garden adorned by red LED hearts. My family has been coming here for years. Special shoutout to all the waiters there,...especially Ricardo, who by this point has our orders memorized haha.More

Ignore the “Best-of” ratings from years past. This place is no longer relevant as an Aruba destination. To start with, we had a reservation of 20, which was divided into three tables. One table is already getting appetizers while another had just given their drink...order. Myself, and four others ordered the “famous Veal Chop”, (yes, we described it just like advertised, and as we always did,,. And also pointed to it on the menu). After a long wait we received our meal ,.. which turned out to be standard veal Parmesan (not even on the menu,..!) As it turns out one of our party checked with the kitchen, and lo and behold,.. they had NOT gotten their chop delivery for the night! We had our meal, which was “nothing famous or special”,.. then brought this up with the owner. He mumbled something,.. and walked away ,.. but did speak with the waiter. After some weird body language between the two,.. we finally received our bill ,.. which included full charge for the order. This for the “famous chop” we didn’t get. I even had a photo of the chop from years back to compare ,.. so they really did pull one over on us! In addition, the next day my cousin let us know that she was clearly overcharged for her pasta meal ,.. and they also did nothing with the bill. Unfortunately, because the gratuity is automatically added to the bill for large parties, we couldn’t address the poor experience in the proper way. With all of the outstanding restaurants in Aruba (including about 6 within one block away!) it’s Time to let this place die a quick death,..More

Watch out your bill, prices are misleading, first you are informed that it’s on Florijn but dishes are on dollars. Don’t dare to complain because the owner it’s the most ignorant person I’ve met in Aruba. This because I am not even talking about the...below average dishes served (I am Italian myself), salty dishes, risotto overcooked. Poor waiter did his best to serve the table, but I do NOT recommend it.More

We read the reviews prior to going. The pizza was soggy. Meatballs were hard as a rock and cold. I ordered the grouper, it wasn't cooked, I sent it back and although they made an effort to cook it more it was still mushy. The...gnocchi were hard. We did give it a try. We will not be returning.More

Always check out this restaurant when in Aruba, may be the best authentic Italian food on the island. Like all businesses in Aruba now, they were getting cranked back up after Covid so a few menu items were missing and server was sweet as could...be but a bit green. There was also a 16% service charge (just a party of 4) added to our check which the server insisted was for “the staff” but not a tip for her. Sounded odd but we had a great time and didn’t feel like stirring things up on a wonderful vacation the the happy island.More

Saw it from hotel. Was short walk. Was seated in their outdoor section. Veal was best that I’d had in some time. Very friendly staff. May be where we go for our last meal before leaving.

We visited for Valentine's Day, maybe on elf the busiest days on the Island. We had a 6pm reservation, and were sat right away. The service is a bit slow, but polite and very professional. I think most places are a bit under staffed right...now just like the States, so we didn't mind. The menu offers a great selection of Italian foods. We had ate lunch late so we were not that hungry. We enjoyed a cesear salad which was fresh, with homemade dressing that was excellent, bread on the table was fresh, lasagna & ravioli with meat sauce. Both were piping hot, looked delicious and tasted how they looked! Thank you, we had a very nice evening here! I would recommend going, and will go back next visit in Aruba. (4 stars out of 5 due to service. )More

We have eaten as this restaurant many times. The food is amazing! The sausage fusilli was cooked to perfection! The Oso Bucco was fantastic. Close to the high rise hotels and very reasonably priced. This restaurant should be on everyone's list to try. You don't...need Giannis' when Hostaia is so close by!More

Was very surprised, as an Italian, how good and authentic the food was. The pizza was cooked perfectly. Pasta was al dente and delish. Off the strip, but it was so very good. Owner spoke Italian, so we knew that it would be good and...we were not disappointed. We tried the pasta, excellent, pizza excellent, the Veal chop parm was delish as were the apps. Portions are a very good size, you will not leave hungry and cost is affordable. Trust me you will enjoy your meal. I will definitely go back on my next trip...just an FYI we stayed at an all inclusive resort and visited this restaurant twice, that is how yummy it was!!!!!More

My wife and I own a condo in Aruba and have been coming to the island for about 25 years. We know this restaurant. We are somewhat regular customers. We know the food to be good, if not the best, and the pizza was once...the best that Aruba had to offer......not so anymore. We tried to make a reservation on December 30th. The phone went unanswered each time we called. When we arrived we asked for an outside table as we were being careful about COVID. We were told that "people are eating now but come back in about 15 minutes to a half hour and there should be a table." He didn't want our names. When we returned, he didn't recognize us and after again explaining we had been there before and wanted an outside table, he ignored me and tried to lead us inside. We didn't go. When I recalled our earlier conversation with him, I was told there were no cancellations. However that was not said in our original conversation when we first arrived, I challenged his lie but to no avail. He was insulting and rude; there was no customer service on display that evening. After all of these years, we are done with Hosteria Da Vittorio.More

They do take reservations. After 8 they get busy. You also need them to call for a cab after because there is not much traffic down that street
