We had dinner here on our last night in Placencia and were pleasantly surprised! My husband had the hogfish special which was great! Our server was very attentive, the food was great, and we would definitely return!

Ambiance was different than I expected, it was very casual. However the food was delicious and the portions were GIGANTIC, we ate it for 2 additional meals afterwards. Definitely a cool twist on Italian
