I have been to the new site a few times, most recently last weekend. THat confirmed my impression - the place seems to have lost its edge. The ambience in the new site is quite different - but could be fine. But the service seems to have got worse, and, although they are still working to the same menu, I... More

We stopped in for a quick drink and appetizers. Food was pretty good, beers were really cold, and service was excellent.

Greatly recommend this place for food. I had spaghetti bolognese and wife had Filet res-a filet steak with pomodora spaghetti. Also received fresh bread with oil and balsamico dip. All very tasty. Service as usual in Panama needs improvement.

Very relaxing Italian restaurant directly across the street from TYRP Wyndham hotel. Busy, but tables available both indoors and out. Never felt rushed and the staff understood our very limited Spanish. They were very patient with us as we ordered. Food and drinks were good.

Two of us had been in this restaurant 4 years ago and were so impressed we made the effort to locate it again this trip. They have moved across the street. We both liked the ambiance of the old location. It does not seem cozy this restaurant. The food was good but I believe prices are much higher than the... More

The service was meh, the bread had no flavour, the mains were Luke warm ( not prepared fresh) and not a good value for the money at all. We were overall ver very disappointed, never saw a wine list even. Overall... More

We visited this restaurant twice only because it was raining out and it was close to our hotel. It was very busy the evening that we first arrived and the service and food were just okay. The server was in a hurry and he was not very personable. I ordered the beef tips and they were covered with a very... More

It is not a fancy place but the food is excellent and the prices are fair. The seafood Spaghetti alfredo was the best! The house sauce was also great. Hot fresh bread and a lovely salad. All for the price of an average meal.
