Had lunch here. Welcome drink and then a beautiful salad followed by a wonderful lobster dish. Others enjoyed the steak or chicken. Pleasant restaurant for lunch In a busy city.

The place was full and lively, a good sign. We had a brilliant dinner of lobster cooked to perfection which we had ordered beforehand. The main menu is Italian, you can't go wrong in an Italian restaurant in Cuba - but I would definitely recommend the lobster

Near the Cathedral, this Italian restaurant has pleasant waiters, good drinks and excellent food. I visited twice, having gourmet pizza and a fish dish: both were well above average.

We went here for lunch as we were wandering around the Old Town and it was really yummy. There is quite a lot of Italian influence in Cuba – you’ll find pizzas and pastas on menus and they are really good. This is an Italian style restaurant. We sat outside on the street listening to a local band playing some... More

We ate here twice! The quality and authenticity of Italian food is quite good! The pizza crust and toppings were really done well. The pastas and appetizers were equally good. The location is absolutely lovely if you sit outside in the square! The service was fine, typical 'island' time, you have to get your servers attention. They are certainly not... More

We had a nice meal hear with a fabulous band. Good sized portions of pasta and the pizzas looked like they had lots of toppings. The service was very good and friendly and the prices reasonable. Great live band was playing.

We ate lunch here twice during seven day and six nights in Habana. They serve a marvelous seafood pasta and have a good wine list.

This is a good restaurant, with a varied menu and good value. The food was very tasty and the service was good too. Inevitably, there was live music. Every bar and restaurant in Havana, it seems, has musicians performing and we never encountered a poor musician in any of the bars.

Chosen from guidebook because of location and not looking for anything fancy but really loved the (nearly) all women band playing 3 sets from 6pm. Food and service OK but definitely worth checking to see if the band is on, they seem to have a residency.
