My wife loves the spaghetti that’s tossed in the wheel of Parma cheese. We really enjoy the atmosphere of dining on the beach. Everything was fantastic as usual. The entire staff was very accommodating. Every time we vacation in Aruba we always go to Azzurro for a great dinner. Can’t wait to go again.

We enjoyed dining at Azzurro on our last evening in Aruba. Loved the al fresco dining with views of the beach! Food was amazing and perfectly prepared - the calamari was outstanding; eggplant melanzane appetizer was delicate and flavorful; the short ribs in red wine was rich and perfectly cooked, the chicken with prosciutto was to die for! Just like our grandmothers used to make! Every dish was perfection! My husband said the tiramisu was the best he ever had. We're definitely returning to Azzurro the next time we visit Aruba!

Great dinner! Portions aren't huge, but we had appetizers, so we each had leftovers. My sister and I shared the burrata cheese antipasto, enough for 3 to 4 people. Was very good. I loved the decor, the view and the violin player.

There's no shortage of italian restaurants in Aruba, but most feel like your average, "run of the mill" places that are tourist traps and overpriced. Azzurro is the exception to this rule. A quality italian restaurant, Azzurro is tucked away at La Playa Linda hotel and overlooks the beach. Be sure to ask for one of the tables closest to the beach walkway overhang when making your reservation, and if you get there before 6:30, you can catch a decent view of the sunset. The food is excellent, with a wide range of offerings, and of course the famous spaghetti al formaggio (spaghetti pasta prepared inside a flaming parmesan cheese wheel with whisky). The ambiance is terrific as well. There's a violin player who is outstanding. He'll play anything from Sinatra to Top 40, and if you give him a nod and a smile, he'll even stop at your table for a more personal performance. Just be sure to bring some cash and show your appreciation. Please beware of the "daily specials" being overly expensive. They will often tell you the specials but not the price. For example, one of the specials that evening was a burrata antipasto salad/appetizer. It sounded delicious, but when I asked how much it was, the waiter told me $38, and I thought that was way overpriced. Be sure to ask for the prices on the specials before ordering.
