“An Italian oasis in Cuba”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Good food ... a nice break from traditional Cuban fare. Thin crust pizzas are great. Linguine and spaghetti are fine. I would avoid the Lasagna in future. Pleasant atmosphere but keep your distance from the air conditioner.

“Great Italian food in theme restaurant.”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

Because we like Italian food and because of the good reviews we chose this restaurant. It was just one block from our hotel (Camino de Hierro). They don't take reservations, but we were lucky enough to have a corner table, looking into the kitchen through a glass wall. Clientèle included couples, families and young people. It was a surprise to see that the theme here was 'movies' and although we didn't see the connection with Italian food, we liked it. There was some authentic film equipment on display and it was fun to see which Director’s chair we were sitting in. What we could see of the kitchen was very clean and the staff there were working efficiently. The menu offers a wide choice of pizzas and pastas, but also a special that combines several dishes. We were pleasantly surprised by the prices; a lot cheaper than restaurants in Havana!
Our waitress was very professional, she served our bottle of wine like a real sommelier. Service was smooth and faultless, which is quite exceptional in Cuba.
The pizzas were yummy, and the special was delicious. We had a great meal for a very good price; absolutely value for money!

“Great Italian Option”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

My wife and I went here a few months with some friends. We found the food to be quite good, The place serves up strictly Italian food, Thin crust pizzas and fresh pastas. Everything on the menu reasonably priced well under 8 cuc per person. Also when we were there their was a nice selection of wines, none of the bottles over 15 CUC.

I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Camaguey city centre.
