I am big on reading reviews myself, and I have to say it was our favorite meal after eating out for 7 days. Cristina, the owner was lovely and the service excellent. I was surprised at the great wine selection and all of our dinners were excellent. We had ordered the Tuna Carpaccio, several pasta dishes as well as several Steak dinners. This restaurant is pricey but worth the money in my opinion. Great overall experience and the place is adorable inside..looking forward to returning.

It is a ok restaurant. They claim they have egg pasta even though it tastes just like any other pasta in a pub that was probably bought in a shop. The food is ok at best, the atmosphere is very pleasant but they charge too much for their performance. I'd say lower the prices by 25-30% for it to be enjoyable experience. Other than that it was a pleasant dinner/lunch place, the food good be magnificent if only they really had real egg pasta but sadly they didn't

We found this lovely little jewel accidentally on the night we arrived in Bonaire last February. I am a bit late writing this review! Cristina found us a little table in the back room and served an incredible dinner cooked to order with wine pairings. After the first night, we couldn't stay away (3 nights in 7 days and each of these experiences was as good as the first!).

The nicest meal I've had all year! The wines are amazing and such a warm and inviting space. The pasta was fantastic the service was tops. Many high end restaurants focus too much on being trendy, but Italy in the world is totally committed to the simple elegance of the food they serve.

This restaurant was one of best we visited while in Bonaire. The owner was able to get us a table as a "walk-in" on a very busy Friday evening. The food is amazing, the service was excellent and the wine cellar type of atmosphere made it very romantic for a last dinner for us on the island. The owner is an Italian expat, so the food is authentic, well portioned and presented with all of the wines served coming from Italy. This experience (Yes! Our meal was so good that I will call it that) is a bit pricey, but totally worth splurging yourself for.

Enjoyed the excellent service and good food. Drank and enjoyed the house red wine. Visited this restaurant twice on our short vacation. Our last visit I enjoyed the creamy pea soup with scallop. My main dish mushroom tattaliani (spelling?).

Lovely food beautifully prepared in a very intimate space. An amazing wine selection at good prices and attentive service round out the evening. Highly recommended if you are seeking wonderful authentic Italian food at a reasonable price.

Stunningly delicious Italian restaurant with wine distributor and club along with top notch service. Set inside a refurbished house and office, there are several intimate rooms with dining tables that give you sense of having a private chef and wait staff - even though it's a full restaurant. The wine list is world class and not be missed. Smoker Marlin, truffle ravioli, Bolognese, etc. Better than what I had in Rome.
