“Our favorite family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We take everyone to Tuscani. We love the owner and chef, Walter. He comes to your table and helps explain the menu. He takes great pride in his culinary talents, as he should. He received great training and experience while living in Texas for 7 years. The menu has something for everyone. We all leave happy!

“Best Italian in Guate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Walter is a great chef, and will modify any plate you´d like changed. Best Margaritas I´ve ever had, too.

“Amazing...a word I rarely apply to food in Panajachel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

My review is directed to a limited audience: the traveling vegans of the world.

It's hard to find really good vegan food in Panajachel. To look at the menu, you wouldn't know there are vegan options available here. But owner/chef Walter took great care of us, offering three options: vegetable fajitas, enchiladas, and a focaccia bruschetta.

The fajitas were good, but the focaccia bruschetta was truly amazing. Thin, crispy crust with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, and spinach. A perfect combination. I could have eaten two, but I restrained myself.

Mmmmm.
