Family-run, casual restaurant in downtown Somerville; Cuban/Mexican/Caribbean influenced cuisine, with delicious sauces; beef, chicken and seafood, but vegetarian-friendly too; BYOB; greeted by Martino himself on most evenings. The portions have gotten a bit smaller over the years but the prices remain modest.

For authentic Cuban food and other Caribbean offerings this is a great place. I enjoyed my lunch very much. Service was prompt and courteous. Great for a lunch time change of pace.

Absolutely fantastic food. Chicharrónes, Tostones, Coquettas, Cuban sandwiches, Empanadas. Had them all and they were all perfect!! Casual and clean. Inexpensive as well. This is a must stop place in Somerville.

I have eaten at this restaurant twice, when passing through the area. Having lived in Miami for years this is the closest to the Cuban food we were accustomed to back in South Florida. The pork was tender and not dried out. The black beans...More

I live in South Florida so I know my Cuban food. I did not expect this small place to meet my expectations but it did. A good barometer to determine how good the food could be is to order the asado (lechon). This typical Cuban...More

Yes, they have a lunch buffet. I haven't done it but I've seen the setup for it. I believe it is 8.95 per person. Probably only weekdays.
