Event though we have visited the restaurant several times before, today was our first visit after Hurricane Maria. We went with our oldest son and his family. The food and service were excellent.

Great Italian restaurant, the food is traditional Italian served Puertorican style.Large portions, so you always have something to take home. It is always better the second day. This restaurant is now located on Fortaleza street. Same menu and great service.
