ok place with average food. I had a beef carpaccio appetizer and a seafood soup. Others had a pasta and salmon. The place is kind of cold, like a italian wannabe decoration. Not worth it unless is your only option.

Excellent experience... Atmosphere was delightful, food was delicious, service was on point, price is very reasonable. Appetizer selection is deadly good - especially the salmon carpaccio (Wow). Considering this is Panama, it is quite nice to have a good Italian option within the city.

My husband enjoyed a lovely dinner and nice wine at this restaurant while staying at the Panama Marriott. It is very close so we actually walked. Very reasonably priced wine and of course great seafood selections. No reservations were necessary on a week night.
