Al dente pasta made daily by hand, this authentic Italian restaurant is outstanding. The ambiance is very nice with seating outdoors under a "palapa" thatch-roof.

Not very impressed with the food, the service was ok. The waiter fails to explain the special and we end up ordering too much food.

Maybe we went on an off night, but it was the worst meal we had during our stay. The staff was not particularly friendly. The food bland. My daughter found a bug in her pasta, and her shrimp were so old tasting, that it has...More
