This restaurant has 2 locations and La Gran Via is probably the best one. They have a great selection for lunch at reasonable prices. Just ask for the executive lunches menu. Good music and great service in both locations. You also have to try their pizzas! A nice place if you're looking for a good diner.

Had a great visit for dinner at their location in Avante. Place is big and nice music. One of the best italian food restaurants in San Salvador. Prices are fair but you get great taste and flavor dishes.

Very little authentic Italian at this place - it is ok to go to if you are hungry and want a meal but the quality and preparation of the Italian food needs improvement. Thin crust pizza - they say they have it but is not really thin crust - cheese of course, is processed. Bread as an appetizer is fine.... More

The pasta is good, comes with a great bread, the pizza is a bit thick, the ingredients arent that good, had the peperoni pizza, wont go again for that! The service was good... Must order the creme brule when visiting

I was staying at the nearby Courtyard La Gran Via, so this was very convenient. I was looking for a seafood restaurant, but there weren't any nearby. The menu offers a wide selection. I had the seafood pasta. It was okay. The service was slow, even though people were seated at only three tables. Prices are reasonable.

Great service and good food. It's right next to the Marriot hotel, which makes it very convenient if you are staying there.

I went to the new restaurant at the business center building. Nice atmosphere. Music at decent level. Waitress was nice and suggested a few dishes. I ordered ravioli with ricotta and spinach including puttanesca sauce. It was delicious! Great choice If you plan to dinner with sign octant one or business this place is a good option.
