This was an excellent restaurant and well worth the short taxi ride from Habana Vieja to Miramar. The ambience is excellent both in the front and side of the restaurant as well as the back. I ate there twice and found that the food was exceptionally well prepared on each occasion. The pasta is homemade and absolutely delicious. We had excellent service on both days. For cigar aficionados, the outdoor format of the restaurant allows smoking outdoors without disturbing other patrons. I would select a tomato based rather than a cream based pasta sauce. I tried both and found the tomato to be better. There is a wide selection of cocktails so you can explore these while enjoying your dinner. There is a selection of homemade tropical ice creams for dessert, which I also recommend. Overall, it was an excellent dining experience.

The best Italian restaurant in Havana. A very good bruschetta, just like the Italian one. All the ingredients I tasted were directly imported from Italy in order to ensure the best quality.

The pasta was off the charts. My South African friend suggested this place. The sauce, the pasta, the ambiance, the service was all fantastic. I found the prices to be very fair, actually I was expecting the bill to be much more. Highly recommend ! The chef is outstanding.

I had the costilla de cerdo when I really wanted the pierna de cerdo. After being told what was the difference between costilla de cerdo and pierna de cerdo. I choosed pierna de cerdo but the waiter kept insisting on costilla de cerdo. Fine, bring me costilla de cerdo. I must say that it was excellent. One of the best coffee that I had in Cuba.
