Delicious Italian food, served in an open air secluded restaurant away from the town. We tried the spinach rotolo. It was a small portion, but very tasty and the homemade pasta was a treat. Friendly server and restful atmosphere.

My husband and I stopped in for a fresh pasta dinner and for the impressively-delicious mojitos. We were pleased by the atmosphere but even more so by the attentive and friendly staff. I can't say enough nice things about the service. Thank you!
