Very nice Italian eatery in the center of Old San Juan. Nice decor for an upscale Italian restaurant. Food was very good and nice portions, great wine menu. Service was excellent and will return when in Old San Juan.

Event though we have visited the restaurant several times before, today was our first visit after Hurricane Maria. We went with our oldest son and his family. The food and service were excellent.

Great Italian restaurant, the food is traditional Italian served Puertorican style.Large portions, so you always have something to take home. It is always better the second day. This restaurant is now located on Fortaleza street. Same menu and great service.

This is a small restaurant with delicious classic Italian meals. The main menu is small, all the traditional dishes you'd expect and crave. But the daily specials could be a lot more, diverse and unexpected dishes that make you forget the traditional one you had...More
