Tried al dente when it was new and mixed reviews from party of 8. Gave it another chance and glad we did Party of six. we arrived shortly after opening for dinner but it filled quickly. A few appetizers, salads and then dinner for 6. Servers pleasant food was delicious one very picky eater in party of 6 not entirely happy with meal. Wine selection menu was limited. But we survived . Pastas very good, Osso bucco was excellent. Gnocchhi was excellent. Pasta with shrimp and portochini mushrooms in creams sauce was so rich and delicious calamari appetizer was perfect If you don't know st Martin this may be hard to find, amd it appeared to be a largely local crowd, but that's a good thing. The locals know where the good food is.
