Horrible spot with terrible food. We have visited many times and this was e worst meal we have had in Aruba! Wife and I got Lobster Risotto. Lobster was tough and rice was over cooked and more like mush. One daughter had Salmon and it did not taste good and only thing somewhat edible was the gnocchi. Salads were fine.

Food mediocre at best and very limited menu. Had the lobster risotto and had a very tiny lobster tail and couple of small pieces of lobster. Wasn’t expecting large quantities of lobster but this was disappointing. Risotto was okay. Tiramisu wasn’t good either. Food at LG Smith and other Italian places in Aruba much better in terms of prices and number of menu items. Doubt will return.

The food is quality. The pizza is wood fired and the pastas were cooked perfectly. Coming from NYC I would consider this good Italian food. Carmen was a superb waitress and was very attentive and friendly

We thought we try this out since we were staying at Renaissance Marina. When we arrived, there was no recognition that we had a reservation. The staff person tried to sit us next to the hot ovens, but we insisted on a table overlooking the ocean. The drinks were a disaster. My amaretto sour tasted very weak, like there was no amaretto in it. My wife was unable to order either chiantis on the menu (out of stock). When it came, it tasted like vinegar. We sent it back.

While ordering we changed our minds and asked our server not to bring us minestrone. While waiting for our food, the server sprints out and sets out a soup spoon and races back before we could reconfirm that no minestrone should be sent out. Our server came with the minestrone. We sent it back. The pasta course was very good. My wife’s salmon was bland and tasteless. I thought my beef should have had more red sauce to accompany it. The amount that it came with would hardly accommodate one bite.

There are better dining options in and around the Renaissance. Please seek them out.

The salmon was delicious. It was the best Salmon of all the restaurants we dined in Aruba.
