We eat here often and consider it the best Italian in San Juan. It is in the El San Juan hotel and it getting a complete make over. Cant wait!

Pricey, yes, but well worth it. Staff and food and ambiance - superb in every way. One of the best meals I ever had. Even if you are not staying in Isle Verde, I would go to this restaurant. Perfectly cooked calamari, osso bucco, rissoto and dessert we had! they have traditional Italian cousin as well as chef specials.

We dined her for our anniversary celebration the night before we left Isla Verde. We were looking for a more upscale restaurant to go and we decided to go to El San Juan hotel and didn't realize they had so many restaurants to choose from. I'd have to say that service was excellent (they treated us with great courtesy and... More

Service is great. Staff are all wonderful. Food was not prepared as expected, to be fair, they do use good quality ingredients though. My risotto was grainy under cooked. Lamb was salty and not tender enough. Fish (I forgot if its halibut or seabass) was nice but the vegetables and sauce was very salty and mushy. Steam clams was great... More

This restaurant is very expensive but the food was good. I would not eat there on a regular basis but it is a nice restaurant for special occasions. Staff was awesome but with drinks we were at $60 a person for dinner and one shared appetizer.

Took family and friends to dinner here. Ordered the sausage and spinach risotto for an appetizer to share. It had a weird flavor and was not good. My wife ordered the egg plant parmigian. It was soggy and mushy. My chicken parm was the best thing of the evening. The staff was very friendly but for the price I would... More

I have given this restaurant wonderful reviews in the past, but no more. I recently went with my family and we were sadly disappointed. We understand that the economy in Puerto Rico is very bad, but this restaurant seems to be trying to make up its losses on one meal. The food is okay. The staff is awesome. The high... More

Lovely, intimate restaurant at the E San Juan but NOT cheap! The fried calamari was light, crispy and delicious. I had fresh pasta (cooked to perfection) with mussels & clams; my friend had a beef and red wine risotto that was "over the top" delicious and my husband had the Chicken Marsala with a side of pasta that was absolutely...

The food is delicious, and they have escargot, which you have a hard time finding in PRico. If you can make a meal of appetizers, you will be happy. However , the price for spaghetti, for example is outrageous when you can buy a jar and a box for $3.00. This means there was nothing special about it; could have... More
