This was a very pleasant dining experience. The service went above and beyond and their willingness to accommodate any request was a plus. One drawback is that it is difficult to find. I suggest a test run for anyone who wants to be on time for their reservations. The food is coined to order so one should be prepared to... More

Recently had the pleasure of dining at Anna Maria's in Aruba. I was there with a group of 10 friends and we all had a fantastic time. Maria, Christian, and the rest of the staff make you feel at home in the lovely setting at their private home. We have been there before and once again we totally enjoyed our... More

My wife and I have been visiting Aruba for the last 8 years and only heard of Anna-Maria's Restaurant this recent trip. We read the reviews and actually considered not keeping our reservation given the negativity of these reviews. But we still "took a chance" and our experience was out of this world. We endeavored on this trip to try... More

I had to pleasure of visiting "Ana Maria's" during my annual trip to Aruba. This is a smaller, more quaint "ristorante," located in Noord on the island of Aruba. At first, you would never know it was a restaurant from the outside. I was referred here by a friend. He and his family had enjoyed it so much they took... More

We were able to watch the sunset and have an incredible pasta dinner. The table beside us ordered spaghetti which they made the sauce right at the table-open flamed! My daughter loved watching it!

Let me start with saying that Anna Maria's is a unique and special place. Yes, it is in their backyard of their home, but it reminds me of when I lived in Italy--It still amazes me how they open up their home to welcome us in for dinner. Anna cooks authentic Italian cuisine..this is not a typical pizzeria or your... More

We dined at this restaurant on our first visit to Aruba several years ago. After finding the unmarked house we expected to have the same experience we had had several years earlier. Not to be. We found that this is not the best Italian restaurant on the island as word has it. Highly overpriced for very ordinary dinners. Will not... More

We were there in January 2014. Poor service and below average food. Chicken parm was burned. Appitezers average nothing special. Took over 30 minutes after we ordered our drink to get the drink. Food was over priced. Resturant was not full. Will not return too many other good resturants in Aruba.

I was recommended to go here by a friend. To make the reservations should have been my first clue. It was a problem getting her form done and she was far from nice when it didn't go through the second time. It was supposed to be someones house but we never met the owners. There were 6 friends. 3 of... More

2nd year in a row that we had dinner here. Both times food and service was excellent. Wonderful fresh food. Perfectly cooked. Could not have asked for a better dining experience.
