The food was excellent and service was decent. I ate here a few times and tried the pasta, salads, and sandwiches. Good location and can accommodate groups.

Food okay, not the best ever...but find. Well done, clean and good service. I ate a carbonara, quite heavy with lots of bacon. If you are into heavy and sort of american pastas, this place is gonna be awesome! If you are more like a Italian kind of pasta person, then you're gonna feel kind of disappointed. But as I... More

We dined here on a stop over on our way to lake Atitlan on a recommendation and we were mildly surprised to find such good Itialian food in a rather small Central American town. Both the dinner and breakfast menus were well balanced with breakfast being a bit more international as the dinner menu. You are sure to find something... More

Still the best and the only restaurant for me in Huehue where I feel its safe to eat. The food is great, the interior is really nice and looks like a big barn. Pizza and pasta is great and portions are big. The soups are great too ( and here you get a real onion soup ) Good salads too.... More

Took a break on a long day of driving for lunch here. It is a big, light, airy barn of a place with pleasant staff and a casual feel. The menu is an Italian/Guatemalan mix and vegetarians and carnivores alike had plenty to choose from....although because we were eating lunch we mainly consumed the foccacia and quesadilla type options. The... More

On one hand, I am picky about Italian food, but we are in Guatemala and I thought it was quite good. Try the diablo marinara with shrimp, it was very flavorful. The wait staff is less than friendly, especially compared to the Guatemalans in general, and they do add a tip to the bill. But overall, I would definitely go... More

We have actually eaten here twice and enjoyed it very much! Great porcions of food! The service was about as good as most places in Guatemala! Good parking area! As in most restaurants of this quality a 10% tip was charged on the bill! The food is a little pricey but worth it!

Yea, I know, it is an Italian restaurant in Guatemala, my expectations should reflect this fact. However I had read reviews on here and other sites and was hoping for something special. I did not get this. The Cabonara was a nice creamy-based pasta, it was not cabonara however. The bread that came out with the meal was tasteless and... More

I had two dinners here and both were fantastic! Well, since they serve breakfast all day, one of those dinners was a breakfast! The chorizo that came with that was excellent!! They have an amazing cinnamon tea, rosa de jamaica, and limonada con soda! The decor is great to see! They have broken plates and cups made into parts of... More

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and well located, but the roofing is poorly designed and the temperature inside is unbearable. You literally feel the hot temperature coming down from the roof on to your head. Food is overpriced, our plates were over seasoned and one of our chicken plates was undercooked. Service is very good.
