Food is delicious and fresh. Home made daily and presentation of food is good. Friendly service and place is very clean. You could run into a few undesirable people in the area, but it's really safe. Best Puerto Rican restaurant in New Britain in the center of town.

My husband J and I dine out all the time. The owner was very friendly. The staff was on point and the food was tasteful. It reminded me of Mami's cooking. I highly recommend this restaurant above all in the Hartford area. Lisette Santiago

I've mainly had their takeout, but tastes very good and is plentiful. They do have tables as well.

If you're in the mood for some Latin Food and cooking it at home is not an option, then Criollisimo Restaurant is the place to go to. Brenda, the owner, offers a good variety of typical Latin meals like rice, beans, salads, soups, meats all at reasonable prices and deliciously cooked..... Love their pernil (roast pork).
