Our experience was Excellent, we will definitely be back. The mix of taste was out of the ordinary. The service started slow, but they caught on during appetizers. The setting is as beautiful as can be. The Lobby of the Popular Center and the Restaurant are exquisite. We had the price fixed 4 course and was plenty of food. Keep it up

The food was amazing. Every dish was prepared with detail and the decor in the restaurant is spectacular. The restaurant is located in the business district so lunch time tends to be busy while dinner was quiet.

This is my second visit. Both have been great dining experiences; they have excellent food plus a very ample wine selection. The price-range for wines is acceptable.

Their ability to cook and present pasta dishes is overwhelming. But aside from the excellent risotto, tortellini and main courses; the ambiance is the key for this restaurant.

It is also a very safe place to spend the evening as there is valet parking available and the restaurant is located in the building of one of the main banks in the financial district.

This restaurant is highly recommended.

By the way, the reservation process was very smooth; everything was set and ready for us when we arrived.

I must say that I was skeptical after hearing that Franco was gone, but was extremely pleasantly surprised. The chicken liver and spinach ravioli with brown butter and safe were out of this world!!! The service was fabulous and the wine list was extensive. Super happy and will definitely go back.

Very attentive host. Knew my name as soon as I mentioned my reservation time. Excellent service. Great food! Pastas were extremely yummy! Everything tasted fresh and homemade. Restaurant had a nice eclectic, lounge type design. Music was good and the walls are very cool looking!

Definitely a place to go and consider if you want to a have a nice, fun relaxed dinner with close friends or a special someone.

This is the only negative review I've ever written but honesty is the best policy. 1. Difficult to find and long walk through a professional business center. 2. Waiter was insincere & pompous 3. Didn't have have items on menu. 4. Freezing cold dining room. 5. Our dining check was incorrect and explained in a suspicious manner 6. Sterile atmosphere

You must eat here at least once. There is no better Italian food in San Juan. The service, atmosphere and views were top rate. The owners are proprietors of olive fields in Italy and they serve unique and tasty portions of it. Unfortunately the prices are a bit high and the restaurant is hard to find because it is in a large complex. Two visits a year are affordable.

We definitively enjoyed our time at this restaurant. Everything was spotless and excellent food. In the other hand to our opinion service was a little slow but we can not complain about the way we were treated which was very polite .Souffle ! That's the star of the menu! The best ever!!!

The interior design of this restaurant is a feast for the eyes. The beautiful waves created by bent wood are extremely pleasing and create a quiet acoustic. The tables have linen tablecloths, candles and a small cactus (fake). This simple layout is also pleasant visually. The service was outstanding and warm. The food excellent.
