This is my 7th trip to Aruba and my wife's 2nd.. and we finally came back from a ten year hiatus. In the past I have had mediocre experiences with Italian restaurants on the Island. After consulting TripAdvisor I decided to book a reservation Anna-Marie's. I emailed hem and they were extremely prompt to confirm the reservation. My one and... More

We had dinner here on August 14th & went because people we met at our resort highly recommended it. Are we glad we did - one of the best meals we've ever had in a restaurant. The service was impeccable, atmosphere so relaxing as you are dining in her backyard. The shrimp & asparagus was to die for. A fabulous... More

It's tucked away in an un-assuming neighborhood that looks kind of run down, but the place looks like a mansion. There is no advertising or even a sign so you have to know your way. You can't get through the gates without being buzzed in with a reservation. It's all homemade and fresh as the food is prepared in the... More

We ate here our last two nights on the island. We found the whole experience very enjoyable. This restaurant is in a private residence in a well established residential area and was a challenge to find. There are no signs to guide the way but with persistence we finally located it. Once buzzed inside the gate we were guided down... More

My family (of 12) and I absolutely loved this authentic Italian restaurant! This is our 4th time going to the restaurant, and it seems that every time we go, it just gets better. The food was absolutely delicious-by far the best Italian on the island! And the service and atmosphere could not have been any better! I enjoyed the caprese... More

Anna Maria's serves delightful and tasty authentic Italian food on the Island of Aruba. Not an overly advertised spot, seek out this out-of-home restaurant for a lovely and enjoyable evening with an Italian atmosphere. Your meal will be served fresh from the kitchen not more than 10 feet away. Hospitable staff with a desire to satisfy your stomach and make... More

I made a point to bring my husband to Anna-Maria's on his first trip to Aruba. I have been going for years with my family and could only pick my top 5 restaurants to bring him to on our brief trip to the island. (Which was difficult to do on an island with such amazing cuisine). Being a foodie I... More

A family restaurant in a family's home but with the quality of a five star restaurant, lasagna is the best, but all other dishes are authentic. Our family of eight thoroughly enjoyed the fine food and excellent service. Hats off to the Saponara fanily

This was our second visit to Anna-Maria's. We were led out to the patio and shown to our table. We had the bruschetta and insalata caprese, which were excellent. Even the oil served with house bread was delicious. We had shrimp and grouper dinners. All the food was extremely fresh and flavorful. Followed up with a very generous Grand Marnier.... More

I know taste in food is subjective but I cannot understand the rave reviews of this restaurant. You have tasted better food in neighborhood restaurants a thousand times......and $63 for a pitcher of sangria, $29 for spaghetti and meatballs and listing a daiquiri for $8.50 on the menu and then charging $13 because you want alcohol in it is a...
