Very surprised on how tasty the Italian food was- we shared the "spicy" Ceviche. Excellent! Then had the Canalones stuffed with beef-and linguine with olives capers and anchovies- everything was very good! Definitely would go back again. Mucho gusto!

We were wandering the charming streets of the old city for the fourth time, loving it here, and stumbled upon La Bruschetta. What a treat the steak was! As tender and delicious as we can recall. Every. Melt in your mouth memorably fine. One of...More
