We are very spoilt in Australia with the quality of our food, but this restaurant has to be one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. The pasta was amazing.The staff were excellent as was the wine list. I highly recommend it.

We dined here with several friends. It was absolutely fabulous in every way. The dining room, food, wine, and service were all top notch. It was a wonderful evening. My husband claims the rack of lamb is the best he's ever had. We all chose different dishes and everyone was more than pleased. Bravo! We'll be back.

We went here with friends while in PR for the holidays. We had a hard time getting a reservation due to the season and had to book on the early p.m. side and sit in their covered but heated outside area (a little chilly). This is a fine dining spot with the expected professional service, extensive wine list etc. Everything... More

Overall, a wonderful experience. The food was excellent, especially the grilled Branzino and the lobster ravioli. The menu offers several choices for the more adventurous eater and traditional Italian favorites. Service was excellent and the room was more conducive to conversation compared with its sister restaurant, La Cosecha. A big city dining experience in Paso.

We had an excellent dinner experience here. The staff was friendly and attentive, the atmosphere nice, and the food was interesting and delicious. We started with two antipasti : the poached egg polenta and the crostini con burrata. The presentation was quite attractive, and both had interesting textures and flavors. Very good. We both decided on first course entrees. I... More

We found this place on Yelp and it was very good. It was a cold night, so we sat inside, but the outside (tented for winter) patio looked nice for the right weather. Service and food rocked.

Excellent food and service....comparable to larger city upscale restaurants. Homemade pastas were especially outstanding as was the bronzini special.
