One of the best meals I had in Playa. The Bruschetta isn't the best but the pasta with Italian sausage in a whiskey cream sauce is gorgeous. Fresh tuna, great scallops - you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant is easy to miss, it is tucked into an alley off 5th Ave, just look for the iron gate and hotel sign. It is worth the search, it is a hidden gem. The restaurant is small and open air. The service is extremely...More
