Took my family here on our most recent holiday vacation. The food was very very good. The 6 course tasting menu was fine dinning although the meal was very lengthy because of it. unless you have a lot of time I would select something else. The menu is not written but told to you by the chef himself. that was... More

The personal touch from the chef and his desire to personally cater to you, make this restaurant an excellent dining experience. Although it was busy because of New Year's Eve, and the ambiance was festive, Chef Crostelli made every effort to maintain his personal touch and be present at every table to explain his menu and make his recommendations.

Fine Italian Dining close to Condado Tourist Area. Food taste and quality are prime. You can choose from a 4 or 6 plates degustation menu or you can order from the regular menu. Parking space is limited, so your best bet is use a Taxi from the tourist area. It is a small restaurant, so reservations are a good idea.... More

A very special little restaurant in a pretty cobbled back street of Old San Juan. Six of us had a wonderful meal, and we were all more than happy with our choices off the small but varied menu, helpfully described to us by Vinto, who made our experience all the more special. We all live locally on a neighboring Island,... More

The most authentic carbonara that I have tasted. No bacon or alfredo sauce. The food was great. The service was outstanding the ambiance was romantic and the saxophone player took the mood to another level. The menu is small but great. If you are a couple looking for a cosy romantic piece of Italy this is the place

Excellent Italian cuisine, very creative dishes not found frequently in other Italian restaurants. The Chef creates and presents a menu at the table not written anywhere but in his head. Good variety for different tastes. From more traditional to more daring fares. Everything was excellent.

Every time I go to this restaurant it gets better than the previous visit. Pasta and bread are homemade and very fresh. The "Burrata" is served with greens and cherry tomatoes in a perfect dressing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Of the pastas I prefer the raviolis, done with different fillings daily. The "Branzino" ( for 2 persons) is... More

This is our favorite restaurant in SAN Juan, we actually are looking forward to the next visit to Puerto Rico. I love the flavor that all the dishes bring forward. I usually go with 2 appetizers octopus and scallops. My husband loves their pasta. The panacota is out of this world. Will be back soon!
