Beautiful, romantic sunset dinner. This was undoubtedly my favourite dinner in Aruba. Kingsley did an amazing job serving us and gave us useful information about the menu. It was our anniversary and we were given a complimentary tiramisu which was delicious. Couldn’t recommend it more...for anyone visiting Aruba.More

had a lovely dinner here and watched the sunset. Good Italian food, great service. Reservations are required. NOTE: don’t know why people think it’s ok to take photos in front of/next to other peoples table while they are trying to enjoy dinner??? Walk outside the...restaurant to the side of the building there’s a dirt lot where you can take all the sunset pics you want without bothering others during their dinner. (had to say it) this young couple had the sunset spot for dinner, I felt bad that so many people kept interrupting their meal.More

Been visiting for many years and this place is outstanding. Recently they added a couple of new items to the menu and the risotto balls are excellent. We always love the osobuco, the seabass and pasta with shrimp and vodka sauce. They also have an...excellent chocolate lava cup cake. The pan player is an extra that makes the experience special while the views take care of lovely family pictures. See you again in August.More

Sat there for over 2 hours and still didn’t have food. Had to leave with our food to go because our young kids were so tired. We got there at 6pm and left at 8:20 and had to basically beg for our food. When we...left our family of 13 stayed and their food was gross. The waiter got very aggressive when they questioned the bill. They were charged for things they didn’t order and the waiter yelled at my brother in law to talk to his boss. What a far cry this place was from the first time we went there in 2018. Would not recommend.More

Should have read recent reviews before returning to this Aruba favorite. The decline since our last visit is shocking. Don’t bother to show up early, they will not seat you until your reservation no matter how many open tables are in plain view. The hostess...was not very nice. Service was prompt once we were seated but it went down hill from there. Bruschetta was tasteless. Terrible quality of tomatoes. After 35 minute wait pizza arrived that had clearly been baked, forgotten and then had some mozzarella cheese thrown on it and thrown back in the oven. It was brought to us half melted. Crust was obviously frozen. Ate a few pieces but left over half. Told waiter it was disappointing and he just smiled and nodded then said it’s not what most people order. Then take it off the menu. It’s terrible. For a restaurant that has $40 and $50 entrees, we expected much better. The view is great at sunset but once the sun goes down, there is no need to spend these prices for a below average meal. Also, you have to get on their WiFi then get the QR code for the menu. Really? With the prices they charge, they can afford to print a few menus.More

One of the most beautiful spots on Aruba. Cozy restaurant with nice service, but the Italian cuisine is below average and poor price-quality ratio, even by Aruban standards. Terrible combination of pasta on a chicken schnitzel. Shame.

Just missed the sunset but a beautiful place to be even after dark. Calamari was a bit rubbery, meatballs ok and the ceasar salad was very good. The penne vodka chicken and lobster tail and ravioli were pretty good however our food was barely warm...and sent back to reheat only to come back pretty much the same temp. We chalked it up to the very windy conditions perhaps cooling the food quickly. Service was underwhelming. We had to flag over the wait staff to request a second beverage and basically felt like the staff was waiting for us to leave. All in all we are happy to have experienced this place for its location on the island but we’ve had much better food during our stay here.More

Food was not great. This is our third time here -- 2005, 2017 and 2024 The food was much better in those years prior pandemic. Now I think the quality of food has significantly declined and we are just paying for the view Kid-friendly foods...are not available at all. Not much vegeterian options anymore either.More

I must say that the restaurant came highly recommended by our tour guides for the northern island. He said it was the best Italian restaurant on the island. I have eaten a lot of Italian food around Philly and gotta say this place was amazing....The start with the rolls with the garlic butter had my eyes wide with anticipation. Followed with an unforgetable Caeser salad, really made my night. That was all before I got my chicken Parmesan with linguine that was to die for. I was full by the time it come to desert however I had to try the hot chocolate cake that was unique to the restaurant. What a great choice. A bit pricey but so worth it overallMore

Our service and the staff were both pleasant and courteous at the bar and at the table. Appetizers (Orcine balls, and Caesar salad) were very good, however our Entrees arrived lukewarm warm at best…they were the Salmon and OSSOBUCO DI VITELLO CON RISOTTO MILANESE (...Chef’s Signature Recomendation). Requested a reheat but as you can imagine, it took a bit of time and the Veal was so so. View is spectacular. Ladies…bring a hair band.More

One of the worst meals we have had in aruba. I had a glass of wine knocked into my lap by the server. No apology. My appetizer had to be returned and so I watched my husband enjoy his appetizer while I waited for mine....Both the appetizer and main dish arrived luke warm to the table. I complained to management who assured me a glass of wine would be taken off the bill. When the bill arrived, I was charged for the full bottle of wine. We had to go to management again to have the bill adjusted. We live on the island and have gone to this restaurant many times over 10years. We won’t be returning to this restaurant again.More

Great location, beautiful sunset spot, but a reservation is a must. Service was a bit poor. Got there 15 min before my reservation and they made me wait 15 min to sit me on a table that I could see was already ready. Then the...service was super slow and rather cold. That being said, their pizza was deliciousMore

The view of the sunset was impressive - very beautiful. We were seated promptly but service was quite slow throughout our meal. Food quality unfortunately was on par with the Olive Garden - not very good compared to some of the other meals we enjoyed...during our stay in Aruba.More

Estimating for comfortable seating: indoors with AC - 30, upper overlook balcony - 50, lower overlook balcony - 60. But email them for the actual. I’m just eyeballing. Great breezes!
