Laid back, homestyle and quaint, would describe the restaurant. It is ideal for lunch or early supper. Once the food runs out, that's it for the day. I love their pesto. Everyone in the restaurant raves about their freshly made pasta, salads and pizzas. Make sure you order the focaccia. Deserts look lovely too Enjoy!

Manuela is a great host, she makes the best home made cakes (and healthy!) and they are definitely worth a try. Her lunch menus are excellent fast and cheap options. Goes without saying that the pasta and pizza are delicious.

Try the open omelette, this could be the best omelette I've ever had. The place has a nice friendly atmosphere too.

Caffe Per Due has a nice variety of Italian food and daily specials. I never tried the pizza, but they certainly have a long list of pizzas on their menu. I had the pasta parmigianino and spaghetti pesto lunch specials, and I also had the provolone panini. Both pastas were great, and they also came with tasty herbal bread. The... More

I had the pizza here and was totally disappointed. I make much better pizza at home and I'm no expert at it! This place is very small and super cute but what they served was lame especially for the price. Tasteless pizza needs much work and I was surprised because I believe the owner is Italian. Go to Napolis Restaurante... More

One of the best value eats we spotted in Panama City old town. Nice size portion of tasty pasta from the specials board at $7.50. Lovely server who I think owns it too. So sweet - when two guests accidentally left without their left over pizza in a bag which they'd requested, she ran after them to make sure they... More

We had an early dinner here while walking around Casco Viejo. It is an adorable cafe, and the pizzas were good, authentic (neopolitan style). They have a little back patio and AC seating inside.

We accidentally walked in here and were charmed by the owner/manager, Manuella. She made custom paninis for us which were delicious. Could have used a side of chips or coleslaw. They also had pasta specials and offered to customize as needed. Their real speciality is pizzas and home made deserts. Manuella had us try a chocolate cake. Ummy! Reasonably priced.... More

If you are in Casco Viejo for just a couple of days, it makes it challenging to find a restaurant that offers a nice date meal on a budget. We only had one dinner out while in Panama, choosing instead to have our lunches out and eat at our hostels at night. We scored with Caffe Per Duo. It may... More

Visited this small but uncrowded cafe several times. Suprisingly few tourists, bilingual, friendly staff. Delicious coffee, tropical fruit plates, and outstanding open omlets (loved the tiny tomatoes). Also excellent deserts and homemade pizza for later in the day.
