Very likely the best Italian food I have ever eaten and for a time we lived near New Haven Connecticut where the Italian food is very very good. This is a gem of a restaurant. I can't believe it's not yet on trip advisor. A...More

We have been here twice this week. Covina Marinara was wonderfully topped with shrimp and other seafood delights in a rich marinara sauce. Panacotta for desert made it perfect.

The owner and chef is always there to make sure you like the dish you ordered. Great egg plant parm, all variations of pasta, including lasagna. The owner often sets a whole table with free appetisers which are always delicious.

If you've visited Panama, you know there is a surprising number of Italian restaurants. This is out of the way near the Canal Administration building on Cerro Ancon. The food is excellent and the wait staff are very friendly and patient with our limited Spanish.
