Amazing food

May 6, 2019 - posted by
The food was exquisite. My friend and I wnt to this place on a wine tour. We werr served these amazing raviolis with a truffle sauce. So we went back thw next day to look at the menu only to find that the Raviolis were not on the menu
When we told the hostess, she said one moment let me go speak to the Chef. Needless to say, he accommodated us and it was to die for. The service was great, the atmosphere was pleasant. However, the only reason i gave the 8 rating was because we were seated outside (at our request) and the city was doing paving on the street.

Outstanding dinner

Have been to this restaurant several times each visit over the last 5 years. I can not believe people giving this restaurant negative reviews.
We are From long island ny where their are many great italian restaurants, and this restaurant is superb. I admit some nights are extremely busy with large parties but believe me it worth the wait
Food is authentic, fresh and delicious.

Far suprior to any local competitors

Avoid!

Used to be a great restaurant but now you will get better service at a fast food place. Food was mediocre but service was non existent. We have to serve our own food and the waiter never came to us once he took our order. Dirty dishes were piled on empty tables like it was the kitchen. Best yet, service is included and they refused to remove the service fee.

Being a true Italian myself, I must say our meals were amazing. The pasta is handmade, the sauce is spot on, the veal was So tender... Fresh ingredients, authentic Italian food. Keep up the great work!

courage rewarded

May 7, 2015 - posted by
A couple of nights ago, we too decided to dine here despite trepidations due to recent reviews.

It has been very windy during our stay, so we chose to eat indoors (if I brought young children I'd opt for outdoor seating; the noise level was low inside and kids just aren't always able to adjust their voice to their surroundings (what kid wants to be shushed all the time anyway? that's no fun)).

The kitchen is open and the meat is on display in a chill case. Their kitchen was clean, orderly, and running fast and smooth. I mention this all because I find those points generally tell me I can look forward to a great meal.

My husband and I were not disappointed. He had beautifully cooked baby lamb chops and I had delightfully flavorful bucatini all' amatriciana.

Service was professional and timely overall.
A person might detect some seemingly, thinly constrained condescension (maybe more noticable because of the incongruity in appearance (we barely give a second thought to certain behaviours if a person looks the part)), but I am only interested in execution of food and service done well; in our case it was.

We both left the restaurant telling each other, "that was really good!"
We'll definitely be back, next trip to Aruba.

Great as usual

It was with apprehension that we went to dinner tonight after the recent negative posts. This is a restaurant we frequent every year we are here. We must state that as usual, the staff was courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. The meal was delicious, preparation and presentation was flawless! We will continue to recommend this restaurant to our friends and others.

BIG DISAPPOINTMENT / NAZI INSULT

Mar 28, 2015 - posted by
My husband and I have been visiting Aruba since 1998 which is prior to the opening of this restaurant. We remember the service and the food being much better.

We made our reservations online and dined inside just a few nights ago.

We were greeted and seated in front of the kitchen.

The server, a tall, bleached blond young man finally came to our table and asked us, "Are you ready?" No good evening, welcome to the restaurant, just very curt.

The salad I ordered was very bland, no taste as the only dressing offered was olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

After adding parmesan and salt and pepper and eating my salad, the server, who was right to the side of our table (Mind you we were right in front of the kitchen) raised his arm and blurted out "HEIL HITLER!"

I lost my appetite and wanted to VOMIT!

I wanted to get up and leave, but not wanting to cause a scene, my husband, daughter and I finished our meals and left. He did notify the owner and manager who appeared horrified. They must do something about this server!!

All I can say is that we will NEVER be back and that they have lost very loyal customers who visit Aruba every year.
