“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went there as it is close to the posada hotel where we stayed.
Not the cheapest place but the price is worthwhile!
Quality and taste of the food is amazing. Chef is Italian and you feel it. Pasta are homemade and delicious. Pizza are excellent too. I recommend this place to anyone.

“Great Pasta and amazing service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We went there thinking about a good italian restaurant but not that much. But what a surprise... First the restaurant is beautiful and the menu has a lot of choice... but what we ate was amazing!!!! Really good pasta. We didn't think that it would be that good.

We didn't regret our choice and we would be back there for sure!!!

“Great Food and Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The menu is excellent and they take great pride in their wine list keeping all wines at appropriate temperature. Clientele run from families to couples enjoying a romantic evening. The chefs prepare seafood exquisitely.

“The best pasta ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Just after one month we went back to Marco, I ordered a pasta with shrimps and asparagus, fabulous, the best pasta I ever eat in all my life!!!
The service as usual is good and the atmosphere is relaxing.

It’s a peaty that we live at 4 hours away…if not we’ll eat more often here, and anyhow for a pasta like this is 4 hours of driving is nothing!!!

“Tasty & varied Italian Menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Thought the food was scrumptious but service left a lot to be
desired. Hate it when you are out for a nice, casual and hopefully long-lasting evening to enjoy dinner and the waiter
virtually throws every course down one after the other, even
before you have finished the first one. Will not return for this
reason. Also knowing we were American's and just moved
here, waiter spoke not a word of English nor did they even try
to bring anyone else over for us to communicate with and that
particular evening we were the ONLY four people in the restaurant so it certainly wasn't because they were too busy.
