“Great fun, great food.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

While staying at the Hyatt, we stumbled on this gem by accident one evening. It is just a short walk up the beach at the neighboring resort. Not satisfied with the food at our resort, we decided to give this a try, and it could not have been better. Azzurro bills itself as authentically Italian, and it shows. The pasta was freshly made and perfectly al dente. The mozzarella was made in house as well. There is not a bad choice on the menu, but I am partial to the carbonara with a nice chianti. Perfection. And I'm Italian, so that's saying something. The interior is a mix of italian statues/fountains, crowded tables, and boisterous, happy servers which manages to mingle with the gorgeous beach views and breezes. Somehow it works. I used to dream of going back to Aruba, but now I dream of going back to Azzurro. Sigh.

“Very Noisy Food was poor”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have been here before and it was very good. This time it was not good. my special black linguine with seafood was bad. The seafood was tough, overcooked and not at all appetizing.Our appetizer, seafood salad was no better. My wife's Veal dish was tough. The noise level from patrons was very high. Background music was loud making people talk even louder. We barely were finished picking on the appetizer when they came literally running with our entrees. We had to pour our wine and drink it quickly because the meal was so rushed and food lousy . Some thing has drastically changed here since last time

“Best dinner in Aruba”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Hands down one of the best meals we had in Aruba in terms of service, quality and taste of the food, and atmosphere. Definitely an adult crowd but there were some kids. Wonderful fresh grouper and a crazy good fettuccine carbonara! Excellent choice.

“Our Favorite !”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We have been vacationing in Aruba for more than fifteen trips now and have enjoyed many restaurants but Azzurro has become a favorite. The setting is romantic ... on the beach with ocean views ... the food is delectable ... never disappoints ... and the service is attentive and personal. Lyn is always our server and greets us with her beautiful smile, making us feel welcomed and special ... and always returning for more.
See you next trip,
Paul and Elena
