We tried this resturant while in Bonaire. They bill themselves as a 'Trattoria', which in Italy means a small, family style eatery with reasonable prices. We popped in on a whim without reservations, but they seated us outside. The service was terrible - took forever to even get a drink, no refills on the water, the waitress disappeared and the owner had to come out and give us the dinner options. The gentlemen sitting next to us had eaten at this owner's previous resturants and assured us the food was 'magic'. Well, the chicken was tough, it was over salted and the pasta was undercooked. Interestingly enough, the two gentlemen next to us were unhappy with their food (fish of some sort) and apologized to us for recommending the resturant! To top it all off, the food was very pricey. When we paid the bill, the owner asked us 'how was the food?' - when I told her what we thought, she was very rude. (Don't ask if you don't want an honest answer). She acted like it was our fault the food was bad because we didn't have a reservation! We go to Bonaire fairly regularly, and we will never eat here again!

We know Donna and Giorgio since their first restaurant, since they sold their waterfront restaurant they have changed their concept to a small cozy colorfully air conditioned eatery.
They serve breakfast and lunch every day from 9.30 to 3:00 serving lunch from 11:00 on
Excellent huge variation of pastas ciabatta's salads to die for, fresh fish, it's wonderfully !
Dinners are at reservation on Tuesday's and Friday's. They are now serving theis famous pizza's
All can be taken to go. Love it ! Bravo Donna and Giorgio !

We came here the other day for lunch and we left VERY full and happy! We were a bit frustrated at how long it took to receive our food, but once we started eating all was forgotten! We just got a burger and a chicken sandwich but they were both so delicious. It is a very unique atmosphere as well! Very cute and quaint. The food is a bit pricey if your ordering more than burgers and sandwiches, but if their main courses are anything like their sandwiches, i'm sure you would not be disappointed.

Few restaurants are open for lunch on Bonaire. This restaurant was recommended to us and we went with another couple for lunch. The fish was fresh and with a side salad we had plenty for lunch. Everyone enjoyed their selections and the air conditioning-which is unusual for Bonaire. Then we headed to Gio's for dessert because is just down the street!
