 Excellent food, wine and service. We visited Italy in the World on our final night in Bonaire. A perfect end to a perfect vacation. Carlos was attentive and engaging and his homemade pesto was some of the best we have ever tasted as were the two pasta dishes we selected. Can't wait to come back and try the Tiramisu. A must try for anyone visiting Bonaire.

Four of us, all seasoned travelers ate dinner on Jan 9, 2019. From the second we walked in to the time we left we were so amazed to find an Italian restaurant of this quality on a small island in the Caribbean. The ambiance, hospitality, wine selection, service and gourmet quality of every dish was exceptional and reasonably priced. Near the end of our meal we were greeted by the owner/chef Christina De Palma who personally made sure that our experience at her restaurant was as we expected.
We all personally recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Bonaire as a, not to be missed, truly wonderful dining experience!

 This was beyond what I was expecting. My wife is from Manhattan and we travel all over the world and are serious foodies. Wow! This was definitely one of the best Italian restaurants I’ve ever eaten at (including those in Italy and Sicily). The food was so flavorful and fresh! The appetizers were so unique and tasty. We had the smoked marlin and Vitelli Tonnato (wow!). Then the pastas. So fresh and flavorful. I had the truffle ravioli and Thankfully my 6yo daughter doesn’t eat a lot so I ate her tagliolni bolognese as well!
One of my daughters is very picky and wasn’t happy that her penne pasta had shavings of Parmesan cheese. They noticed her face and switched it out even though we said it was fine. My wife had the spinach ravioli Which she loved. For desert we had the house dessert (tiramisu, pannacota, chocolate roll, chocolate salami). We devoured it and we don’t eat much dessert usually. The service was outstanding. So nice and attentive. This was the highlight of our trip! We will likely come back later this week again!
