Fodor's Review

This high-profile restaurant has continually attracted a clientele of well-heeled residents and international visitors, including former President Leonel, Andy Garcia, and Sammy Sosa. This trio of restored, 16th-century buildings is a landmark in the Zone. The historical ambience, with seating in the brick-arched, Spanish courtyard, continues to be the magnet—much more than the food. The menu has not kept up with contemporary trends, nor are the plates garnished artistically. Still, if you go with the carpaccio, a house-made pasta or ravioli, Italian cheeses with onion jam, and a grappa, you can have a lovely and romantic night out. The professional, Italian maitre d' and the man playing the baby grand (9 pm–11 pm) and the white twinkle lights add to all this.
