This is our ninth time in Aruba and I don't know what took us so long to visit this great restaurant. The food is fabulous and the owner Chris is the best host, he makes you feel like you are eating in his home. although no children's menu they couldn't have been more accommodating. This will be on our list... More

What a perfect ending to our family vacation ! We heard nothing but fantastic reviews all along the beach in Aruba and made reservations for our last night on the island. We were welcomed into a beautiful "home", served by the most attentive waiters and had wonderful conversations with Chris (owner)! The Chef, Anna Maria, (owner) served us the freshest,... More

We've have had the best Authenic Italian dinner ever at Anna Maria's! The ambiance of her home/restaurant made me feel like i was in my kitchen! And getting to meet and speak to Anna Maria, speaking in our true Italian "Dialetto", made it even more special! Her kitchen is Immaculate! Reservations are a must and so are her most delicious...

Tonight my family and I had one of the most enjoyable culinary experiences at Anna Maria's in Aruba. The owner Chris was a most gracious host. He was incredibly personable and described the food perfectly. We went inside the kitchen and met Anna Maria the chef and she was equally as pleasant. The seafood was completely fresh and prepared to... More

We had a great meal at Anna Maria's. We go each year we travel to Aruba. It is in the backyard terrace of a home but it is designed very well. We often are afraid that it will be very warm there but we had a really nice breeze and it was very comfortable. The food is excellent! This is... More

While it is exceptionally hard to find, once you do find it you will thoroughly enjoy your meal and the service! Christian and Anna Maria are delightful hosts, and the lasagne as to die for! One of the only and best "experience" restaurants on the island, second only in that category to 2 Fools and a Bull. Bring a group... More

It's a hidden gem in the middle of a neighborhood. We had an early dinner reservation on a Thursday, and to my surprise we were the only ones there. A large table of people arrived as we were getting ready for dessert. We enjoyed some wonderful bread in an awesome garlic sauce. My son said his spaghetti and meatballs were... More

This was the first time that I visited Anna Maria's Ristorante and was not disappointed. I started out with the Crepe appetizer which was fantastic. We enjoys four dishes; Lasagna topped with eggplant, Spaghetti Carbonara, Spaghetti Puttanesca and Spaghetti alla' Vongola. Every meal was great. My wife said that the Cappuccino was the best anywhere.

We loved our dinner at the beautiful home/restaurant of Anna-Maria and Chris. They were welcoming and friendly hosts, and the food prepared by Anna-Maria was delicious. True authentic family recipes served with care by an attentive staff. We will definitely go back on our next trip to Aruba.
