“Surprisingly great pizza with lacking service”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

First we stood at hostess booth for five minutes as three staff members looked at us passed by. We finally stopped one of them as they made their fourth lap past us. Once seated the waiter gave us menus and left not to be seen until the end of our experience. The only way we got to order is that i had to search out a waitress and order while she stood at the wait station and entered in our order. The restaurant had a 2 to 1 ratio of guests to wait staff but it took 35 mins to order. The order of 1 pie and 2 adult beverages came out in 10 mins. The drinks were pretty good but the pie was delicious! Being from the metro New York area that is a great compliment!

“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The only time we had to wait and you don't mind, so many shops around you to kill the time, there is a bar too. Great pizza, pasta and sangria!! Very good.

“Good food, bad service ”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Went here twice while on vacation at the Renaissance Marina Hotel. The food is pretty good, and the location is great, especially if you can get a table during a performance at the band stand. However, once we placed our initial order, it was pretty difficult to get our waiter's attention again. We watched our drinks sit on the bar for probably 10 minutes getting warm before they were delivered. Avoid the coffee too, it was pretty terrible.

“Great food & ambiance!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Like the other Casa Tua in Palm Beach, the portions are generous & priced relatively cheap. The food is excellent and the servers are attentive without being overbearing.
During the evenings, you may see some of the cruise ships leaving the port (which is kinda cool if you've never seen a giant boat sailing away before).

The Renaissance Marketplace area was also decorated for the holidays, which looked nice.

I would definitely recommend dining at Casa Tua (either at the Oranjestad or Palm Beach locations).
