This long-standing local favorite serves up excellent pastas and entrees in a convivial open-air setting. While there's some indoor seating, the best tables are found in a large covered courtyard just off Calle Santander that's lined with plants, palms, and bamboo. The proper tablecloths and candlelight are offset by the plastic lawn chairs. The homemade fettuccine is available with more than 15 different sauces, and other pasta options include lasagna and cannelloni. For something heartier, opt for grilled fish, chicken parmigiana, or steak pizzaola. When you order, the waiter will ask if you want your pasta "al dente" or "normal." "Normal" would be overcooked for most people accustomed to good Italian cooking. This place also serves up good, standard breakfast fare most days.
