This is definitely the best Italian Restaurant in Havana and they make the best Daquiri naturale (no frappe por favor). The Anti-pasto with meats and cheeses is delightful. Ask for your pasta el dente here and they actually understand you and pick a tomato based...More

Very good restaurant in Havana. Service is also very good and waiters are very friendly. Fair prices ! Had a arancini siciliani as a starter and lobster as main and both were delicious. In the end, we’re rewarded with a cigar and a rum añejo.

Cuban food done in high style. Super service. Beautiful setting. Generally, the price of food in higher end places is about half of what you would pay in the States.

Must visit dinner when in Havana. Just blocks from the Habana Libre hotel in Vedado. Food, ambiance, and service were 5 Stars. Choice of outdoor or indoor air conditioned seating. Meals come with after-dinner cigar! Just go, you will not be disappointed.

El “joven” restaurant abrió sus puertas el 13 de febrero del 2011, luego de meses de una ardua labor de sus dueños y de todo el equipo de trabajo. Enclavado en el patio de una hermosa casona del Vedado estilo años `40, tiene un especial magnetismo que se aprecia desde su amplia y fresca entrada, sus salones (al aire libre y climatizado), su singular cocina y la excelencia del servicio.Con un selecto menú se complacen los gustos de toda la clientela. La variedad es amplia y va desde nuestra comida tradicional hasta recetas únicas e innovadoras de una total tendencia gourmet; siendo el factor común la selección cuidadosa de los ingredientes y las atrevidas presentaciones que realzan las texturas, sabores, colores y aromas.
