There are lots of Italian restaurants in Havana but very few that manage to maintain great quality and innovative cooking. Sergio and his team offer delicious food in a simple restaurant. Highlights are definitely the starters - focaccia piled with prosciutto, rocket and thinly sliced parmesan or langoustines with lemon and olive oil. Pasta dishes are cooked al dente and... More

The mojitos are... More

What a thrill to stumble into very high quality fresh pastas and pizzas. The chef is Italian, there are no menus and the quality of the food is on level with a nice trattoria in New York. Reservations mandatory as the word is out. So thankful we found this place!!!
