“Our Favorite Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

My Veal limonese was so good this year. We went with a party of Eight and everyone raved about their meals. The gnochi was also homemade and best ever. All veal and pasta dishes were oustanding. Service was very good but not excellent as large groups always frequent this restaurant. We happened to be near a table that took very small children and one screamed part of the night. We all ended with a good choice of desserts. Tiramisu and creme brulee were very good.

“Not what we expected!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

This place is right around the corner from the condo complex we stayed in. We thought we'd give it a try, since its located away from the pricey touristy hotel area. The food was fresh and flavorful, well prepared and beautifully presented. Awesome seafood! However, the prices were unreasonably high. I mean $22 for the Rigatoni alla Vodka, which was pretty much vegetarian dish. Also, no kids menu, but they offer half portions, which are pretty good size themselves, but still, $10 for the plate of spaghetti with 3 medium size meatballs for the kid. With all do respect to the chef, how much does the bowl of pasta cost? The waiter, of course was irritated with us because we took time making our selections, but then forgot to bring our drinks and needed to be reminded. And the last, but not least, Martini for 12 bucks! I am sure that there was no gold mixed in it. The glass of Pinot Grigio for $9 was not even of 2010.

“Excellent Italian Food! Early Birdies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Early Bird Special was the best meal I have eaten in Aruba so far.
Salad, Chicken Parmazen and desert. $25
I would have paid more for this dinner because it was just the way I like it back in Jersey
