We stumbled across this place on our way down to beach after a day at the spa across the street. It looked so inviting we decided to stop in for "one drink" before we continued our adventure. We ended up sitting at the bar for 5 hours! We were having such a great time mostly becuause Juan and Luigi took such good care of us and were so accommodating! We ended up having dinner and we came back the next day for lunch. We will definitely be be back!

As said, this charming trattoria is al fresco which is dreamy with the sound of the sea and a soft breeze to enhance your visit. Excellent service too. I had the seafood pasta special of the day. Sadly the clams were "unchewable" but the octopus was the best part..tasty. The raviolis were on the thick side. Bruschetta..yummy! Hubby's rib eye steak (after the med well being qickly replaced by the as-ordered med rare) was lacking in flavor and devid of marbling.
Presentation is really nice and the wine list is straight forward with several bottles total and all for $28. Prices are reasonable and portions are rather huge.

A bit on the noisy side, but it is outdoors and to be expected. Our waiter was very attentive and tuned in to our needs. Good selection of wines also and we thought the pricing was reasonable, especially considering the neighborhood, which is definitely upscale

I love this place. Hidden next to the La Concha is this little trattoria next to a park near the ocean. It has mostly outdoor seating with a small bar. Since it was an early Friday afternoon we were able to sit at the bar which was air conditioned. But in the evening it is packed.

I was surprised by the number of rare rums and whiskey's they had. Most bars in the area have the standard offerings, but if you are looking for something more upscale and unique, this is the place to go.

As for the food, we had a pizza which was an authentic Italian style with thin crust. Ours had brie and prosciutto and goat cheese. I have tasted many pizzas like this in high end establishments in new york and san francisco and this pizza was just as good if not better than any of the pizzas i had there.

Melvin and his staff were very friendly and hospitable. They made us feel like we were one of the regulars. I come to Puerto Rico at least once a year and will make this a regular stop.
