“A little slice of Italy in PR”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Our group had a true Italian meal at this restaurant. From antipasta, to a cappuccino to top the night off. The service was phenomenal as well. You can also share many of the dishes as the portions are quite large, but that way you get to try a variety. We had the fried tortellini to start in a truffle sauce, it was delicious and we ate every last drop. Next we had the arugula salad with tomatoes and parmesan, also very good. By the time we got to our pasta dish we were stuffed, but we squeezed in some room for linguini with pesto and prosciutto (they let us add this into the sauce). This was on par with pesto from Italy, really delicious. Don't think you can go wrong with this restaurant. Plus it is different than your average Puerto Rican fare and in the same price range as other restaurants in Old San Juan. Enjoy!

“Good food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Their biggest asset is the patio. It's cozy and charming excellent for a nice conversation. The service was really good, attentive and professional. To eat, the server recommended me pappardelle with lobster and it I was delicious although I have to say that the pasta was not cook enough. I love pasta and I always at it "al dente", but I still believe it was way too chewy. The wine list is very complete. Price range ok.
