Felt like being served out of a can. Italians would be ashamed of having their culinary used as a reference.

I had read that this restaurant was "very expensive" so I waited until I had a special occasion to go. News Flash: The restaurant is fairly priced for fish and pasta, and not nearly as expensive as I had thought. Entrees range from about $15-$20 for pasta and fish to $30-$40 for high quality meat. The service is spectacular, and... More

Very attentive staff. English-speaking abilities were not that good, but they offered tablets with pictures, which helped immensely. Their recommendations for appetizers, entrees and wine were also quite good. I would go back here again if I ever return to Panama.

Ordered many plates and there were some mistakes. Order meat medium and comes well done. Out of many wines on menu. Put 20 % over bill in envelope and the waiter told me there was a 15 percent charge for small private room which is not true. There is a $150 consumption min for small private room. Very disappointed with... More

Great Italian Restaurant, located outside of downtown. Great ambiance that created a cozy and romantic feel. Extensive wine list and authentic Italian Cuisine. The wait staff is excellent, very attentive without being over bearing. Great steak and seafood. The tiramisu is amazing! Will definitely return to this restaurant, well worth the price.

Went to Ditrani's for a business dinner on Tuesday and came back for lunch on Wednesday and dinner on Thursday. Everything was great! My compliments to the chef. The wait staff was attentive but not over bearing. Been working and eating in Panama for nearly 10 years. I'll be back on all of my future trips.

You will immediately fall in love with this restaurant when you enter the door. Amazing design and beautiful rooms. The bread and butter are simply perfect! And the food is perfect. Excellent pasta and risotto. It's not cheap... But the quality is amazing. Great for business or romantic meal.

I hosted a business dinner here and was impressed with the food. We ate in the main dining room but you can also have your meal in the bar, in a private room or in the patio. For appetizer, we tried the carpaccio, and the cheese plate and for main course, I had the Penne al Forno ,which was also... More

I have lived in Panama and eaten at about every restaurant here in the past 35 years. I called and requested a private room for 6 people and they told me there was a min of $350 consumption.

Emanuel D, Owner at Restaurante Ditrani's, responded to this review

Sir, First, we apologise for any inconvenience caused about the policy of reserved rooms. The reason why we ask for a minimum consumption is because it is considered a VIP space and therefore represents an added value. In your case, surely it isn't necessary to make this kind of clarification, but often the restaurant is forced to do it. Sorry... More

Ditranis Its a place where the freshness of the ingredients is our main concern, always being truthfull to the traditinal italian cuisine. Our food is simple but yet sophisticated.
