“An awesome option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I loved this little restaurant as a change from eating in my casa. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food well-priced, and always delicious. They have a good variety on their menu.

“A surprisingly nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Definitely a good place to go. To Cuban standards a 'real' Italian restaurant with good food. Try the croquetas and the lasagna. Bon aproveche!

“Always enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I love their desserts, salads, chicken and especially the lamb. High ceilings, tastefully finished decor, and friendly staff. Pricing is very reasonable. You could afford to eat here on a regular basis.

“At last - Salad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

One and only place we found real actual lettuce included in the green salad in Cuba. Excellent pasta. Quick service. As good as a European restaurant!

“Ordinary food in an ordinary setting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

It was busy and from the outside it promised a lot, especially after the waiting staff moved a table to make space for us. But when the food came it was the same old Cuban fare - flavourless grilled meats and a paella whose ingredients seemed to have been cooked some time in the last week and then thrown into a pot that day. And it was really really hot, which is probably more the fault of the climate than the restaurant, but measures can be taken to ease it a bit. The waiting staff were diligent and well-mannered, but couldn't rescue the food.
