I think honestly if I could have, I would have rated it a 4.5, but decided to round up since they took good care of my 2 year old during our visit there tonight. We decided to try the place out based on a recommendation of some people we have become friendly with here at the Marriott Surf Club, and I'm glad we did.
The service for the most part was very good... They got my daughter's penne out in less than 5 minutes, which was great since she is 2 and doesn't have the patience for the Aruba restaurant timing. But then later my husband and I sat for several minutes with empty water glass before I finally flagged someone down to get more water... Overall I'd give them a 4.5 out of 5 for service.
The food was also very good, although the mussel appetizer we ordered was a bit overcooked, so I probably would skip that next time. My husband got the linguini with seafood and I got the linguine with lobster. My husband said his was really good and the shrimp in it was cooked perfectly, although the calamari was a little over cooked. Mine was also really good and the lobster was cooked perfectly, and there was a good amount of it in the dish (which I would expect for $39). The highlight of the meal was definitely the canoli though. My husband said it was the best canoli he has ever had, and he eats a lot of canolis because they are his favorite food. So overall the food was definitely a 4.5.
It wasn't the best dinner of Italian food I've ever had, but it was definitely pretty high up on the list, and was better than any of the other Italian restaurants we've tried here (which is probably most of them since this is our 6th visit to Aruba).
