Great place downtown. We love everything they serve, specially the spaghetti allo scoglio, linguini vongole and carpaccio di manzo... Awesome desserts as well, plus it's pet friendly.

Our amazing Pizza is made according to ancient Italian traditions by young and talented pizzaiolo Danilo and Chef Piero Spinelli's delicious and authentic Mediterranean cuisine is often referred to as "better than in Italy" and is complemented by great wines, Prosecco or the traditional Italian cocktail, the Aperol Spritz....a must try !!! Head waiter Israel's staff is friendly and knowledgeable and strives to offer one of the best dining experiences in Panama City. To add some spice to the ambience, Thursday nights we offer live music (international, jazz, bossa nova, etc...) with a special dinner creation and Fridays, starting at 7pm a very lively After Office cocktail and appetizers party with DJ house music on our recently renovated garden terrace where you can try bartender Dennis' fabulous cocktails and relax in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
