Restaurant details

We went to this place early for breakfast two times and loved the food both times. Each time we had the place to ourselves, perhaps because we arrived right at 8. The second time the staff was having their breakfast and we asked for some ice (hielo), and we overheard a member of the staff, a teenage girl, say "maricons," the Spanish equivalent of "faggots," followed by a round of hearty laughter. We finished our breakfast, a bit out of sorts in this "city of peace." Before paying the bill, I told our waiter what we'd heard, and he acted surprised, apologized, etc., but it ruined this restaurant for us.

We asked if they made empanadas ...the waiter said "yes, cheese"., we said we were looking for a place that had beef or chicken. He said "it will take an extra 5 min." And so he made them fresh for us... 2 for $1.00. We assumed they were small so we ordered 2 beef and 2 chicken each....he laughed.. They were huge and we could barely eat 2! They were delicious . We walked down to the town park and fed the stray dogs.... Which by the way are very friendly...don't be afraid to approach them! Also had fresh pineapple juice. My bill was $3.00 ! Highly recommend .

I started out eating breakfast here every morning, but quit when the matronly owner turned out to be an overbearing idiot. I quit eating there after that, even though they served a good breakfast for an excellent price.

The food was okay. The service was very good. It was late and we thought we would give it a try. Not as Italian as the flag would have you believe.

D'Anita has created a wonderful courtyard atmosphere for her restaurant. I had the special of the day which started with Ceviche, soup, juice, chicken with rice and beans and a lovely dessert.
I will be back soon!
