“Best Italian in Aruba”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

One of the best seafood risotto I ever had, beats the ones I had in Italy, the atmosphere is okay, place kinda small, has an open kitchen you see where your food is coming from, the food is very authentic in my opinion.

“What happened to this place?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

When I still lived on the island, I'd visit frequently. I remember waiting times to get a table, jam-packed restaurant inside and out, and good, fresh, food. Our experience today, being back here after 5 years, was less than satisfactory.

When we got there at 18.30, the place was empty. Like, first ones there. So that was a bad sign from the start. Friendly staff, except one. This waitress was hanging over our chairs while talking loudly to collegeas (we weren't her table), grabbed our half-eaten plates without asking if we were done, and was very arrogant overall. We told the maître d, and this waitress was reprimanded.

After that kerfuffle, the appetizers were ok (one was forgotten and handed to us a little later, lukewarm), and the entrees were edible, to say the least. We had to ask for an extra bowl of tomato sauce to add some flavour and colour.
The Ossobuco was ok, though. A very tough brick of risotto was served with it as well, so make sure your dentures are in tight.

Dessert (pannacotta) was good, though, so that's a recommendation.

All in all, a less than stellar experience. We drove past a Wendy's for some burgers on the way home.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We went a few times on our last trip. It is a great place to eat. The prices are a bit high. The food quality is good. I would recommend the lasagna. The desserts are great and the wine is very good.

“Don't miss.”

Attentive service. Big portions - when the food arrived, we thought we'd never finish it but it was so delicious, we scraped our plates.
