Located at Fortaleza St. near to Plaza Colon. Great service, excellent food at reasonable prices. Small menu with daily specials. Italian music, nice ambiance. Watch out, they serve a lot of food so one item is good for 2, perhaps 3 persons.(main course)

Very nice atmosphere, good service. I must admit the portions were large! Pretty reasonable price too. However the food was a bit more bland than expected.
