This restaurant sits across the JW Marriott Hotel. If anything you want to do in Caracas nowadays is to stay put in a safe place so it is perhaps the safest place to walk to from the hotel. (Sorry for being so blunt, I hope I was exaggerating and didn't read as a gringo that thinks only the safe parts... More

Been a couple of times and always eat well. Food is consistently good. Service a bit subpar but efficient. Suggest sitting outside in the terrace.

This restaurant has a great location - opposite the Marriott and directly above the Juan Sebastian Jazz bar. We sat on the terrace in the balmy Caracas evening and enjoyed some really good food. The menu has lots of Italian standards, with pasta and risotto dishes coming highly recommended by the staff. I had the cerviche (fresh and tangy, without... More

Came here for a quick lunch before setting out to the airport. Opted for the set lunch given time constraints. Food was fairly average: the pork steak a little tough, and the mozzarella with the starter not so great. But enthusiastic service, and great value: the bill was less than 400 Bolivars including a beer and a water!

Opposite of the great Mariott located this restaurant is a MUST. Excellent food, fresh and with good quality. Unfortunately the service is very bad and not efficient enough for such a high standard. The waiters have no interest in their guests, because they are badly paid and just do what is asked for, but very slowly too. The prices are... More

Well how to start...This is my first review ever and I have to say that I have been in +700 restaurants and these range from Michelin's and St Pellegrino's to eating standing on the street in places that most of people would not even consider as safe to have food I had to provide you with my background and say...

Good option if you are not looking for a sophisticated italian restaurant. Food is just ok, services are fine and price is a little high, but everything is becoming quite expensive in Caracas, so price is comparable to other similar restaurants. The onion soup is actually quite good! Well located if you are staying at JW Marriott hotel.

There is nothing good about this restaurant, except the location which is in front of the Marriot. Waiters were rude, food is extremely bland and tasteless, service took forever (90 minutes to get our entrees even though the place was not full) and food is overpriced. Net nothing good..... If you want to eat Italian, go to a different restaurant... More
