Set in what was an interesting private home, this place enjoys a good reputation here and among tourists. That said, while the setting was delightful and the service prompt and attentive, the food was so-so. The pumpkin/squash soup was wonderful. The entree -- served family...More

Cubans know how to cook for sure. Unlike that of most Caribbean Islands, Cubans emphasize rich flavor over pepper heat and have learned to make the most of what is available. We had heard La Moraleja was good and we were entirely pleased with the...More

This is definitely the best Italian Restaurant in Havana and they make the best Daquiri naturale (no frappe por favor). The Anti-pasto with meats and cheeses is delightful. Ask for your pasta el dente here and they actually understand you and pick a tomato based...More

Very good restaurant in Havana. Service is also very good and waiters are very friendly. Fair prices ! Had a arancini siciliani as a starter and lobster as main and both were delicious. In the end, we’re rewarded with a cigar and a rum añejo.

El “joven” restaurant abrió sus puertas el 13 de febrero del 2011, luego de meses de una ardua labor de sus dueños y de todo el equipo de trabajo. Enclavado en el patio de una hermosa casona del Vedado estilo años `40, tiene un especial magnetismo que se aprecia desde su amplia y fresca entrada, sus salones (al aire libre y climatizado), su singular cocina y la excelencia del servicio.Con un selecto menú italiano de la mano del cheff italiano Marco Lansa se complacen los gustos de toda la clientela. La variedad es amplia y va desde la clasica comida italiana hasta deliciosas pizzas artesanales; siendo el factor común la selección cuidadosa de los ingredientes y las atrevidas presentaciones que realzan las texturas, sabores, colores y aromas.
