This is a beautiful Italian restaurant & the food was excellent. The wait staff very attentive. Wish we had more tie in Boquete to return & try more of the delicious food.

Just go!! The food is local, fresh, inventive (I’m from Melbourne Australia, which has some of the best food in the world; a city voted top city in the world 6 times in a row) Each course was a delight. And they gave us a...passionfruit-cello which was amazing The waitstaff are fantastic! And We thanked the chefs as we left - wow. . A perfect dinner out.More

We had to cross the Atlantic and come to Panamá to eat the best pizza we ever had eaten. Staff was as great as the food. Highly recommended place to spend a lovely evening after a hiking day in Boquete.

Very glad I tried this place. I have Celiac and need to eat gluten free, and they knew just which meals they could prepare for me. We had a nice view at the back of the restaurant, away from the noisy main room. I ordered...the risotto and really enjoyed it, and had no gluten reaction at all. My only complaint would be that the staff were overworked, and the meal took a while to arrive. They also forgot to bring the bill when I asked, an easy mistake to make when it was so busy. I don't think it's a regular occurrence, and I would definitely go back again.More

RetroGusto provides for all culinary interests. The staff are friendly and cheerful, and attentive to all your needs. They also work as a team, to support each other when everyone is enjoying their meal! Yes, sometimes the music can be a little noisy, but, hum...along, lol! Enjoy!More

This is a busy place, why, the food is scrumptious. I had the gnocchi and it was light and fluffy with a beautiful creamy sauce. If I had room I would have had more. The bartender had his own version of Mojito, great flavours. The...owner was present and spoke with almost everyone, a great touch! The back of the restaurant has big windows with a view of the jungle. Don’t miss eating here it’s excellent!!More

I hesitate to even write this review because I fear they will become so busy i can't get in. The food and the service at RetroGusto are both excellent. I had the gluten free pizza one night and the gluten free pasta another night, both...were the best i have ever had. The staff was very knowledgeable on which dishes contained gluten and how they could be modified to meet my needs. Loved it!!More

We enjoyed the tagliatelle with homemade sausage, bell peppers and Parmesan cheese. We also had some local IPAs and the sangria. We finished our dining with almond parfait with hot chocolate fondue. The location and panorama is second to none. I absolutely recommend this place...for your visit to Boquete!!More

Restaurant with view of lush hills of Boquete from enclosed terrace. Italian food is flavorful. Best known for their gnocchi. Can serve large groups. Had the tagliatelle with homemade sausage ($14) which was tasty but not exceptional and a balboa beer ($2). Service was quick...and efficient.More
