It's the best Italian restaurant in Panama. You should try: La burrata, aguacate con camarones and the tiramisú

We went for lunch and had delicious appetizers and pasta. It is not easy to find it, once there you find a clean, well appointed restaurant with its owner in attendance. Service is excellent.
