“Good Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The place was recently renovated. It is located at Playa Linda Beach Resort. I'm always chasing an italian restaurant to eat pasta carbonara. They know how to make it here. The menu has a very good selection of cold antipasti. The service was good, althought they had correct the check three times until they got it right.

“Excellent choice”

This is one of our favorite places to have dinner. We have brought friends over the years and everyone has loved it. One trip we ate there 3 times. Excellent food, great service, nice location. Try the white sangria- yummy!

“Better than expected”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Often these hotel-based restaurants with great views fall down on other aspects - like service, food, and value - but Azzurro surprised me. The food was very good and the prices were not outrageous. The service was very good, and we definitely had a great view of the ocean. My Scampi Italia was very good, with four sizable shrimp and a tasty sauce. The portion was adequate, but with pasta there's not reason not to pile it a bit higher. My wife had paste with clams in red sauce, which she enjoyed, and the teens also liked their orders. We did have to all donate food to my 18 year-old; again, a bit more pasta would have been welcomed.

“Great!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Thankfully this restaurant is at the Playa Linda, where we are staying. We decided to go here for our second night, and were seated in perfect view to watch the amazing Aruba sunset. Unfortunately there was a cloud cover so we only got bits and pieces but it was the best seat in the house! Out waitress was incredibly helpful, especially regarding my gluten allergy. She said that all the pasta dishes can be made gluten-free (to my shock and awe, it's not often that a restaurant is that accommodating!)

My husband and I ended up ordering the escargot to start (always a must) which was a large portion and awesome! Even with the wonderful gluten-free pasta options, I ended up going with the seafood risotto which was very tasty. My husband had the 4-cheese gnocchi and said it was great. We loved this meal, and the scenery is wonderful. Try and time your meal for the sunset, you won't be disappointed!

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have been to Azzurro several times over the years, and apart from one instance where the pasta was a bit too al dante (underdone) we have nothing but praise for the entire experience. Wonderful ambiance overlooking the ocean, attentive staff, reasonable price. We will be back.
