I ordered pasta vongole and It was okay. A lot of clams were emtpy and there were not so many. The pasta was cooked good.... More

We have been coming to Aruba for 4 years and this is without question the best dining experience we have had. The Italian food rivals what we have in New York and the service and intimacy makes for a memorable night out. This is an absolute must in Aruba. The lasagna above all was the best I have ever tasted!

Anna Maria and Chris are putting their hearts and souls into their foods, and you can taste it. They have a flare for seasonings and flavors that are second to none--and the relaxing time spent having a leisurely dinner is an experience in itself. My personal downside is that this wonderful visit is only a once a year thing; I... More

We have been dining at Anna Maria's since it opened about 5 years ago, and have never been disappointed - to the contrary, every meal seems to be better than the previous! Anna Maria and Chris make every effort to offer home cooked meals, and every course demonstrates that. My wife can't resist the puttanesca, which she had on our... More

This is our fourth visit to Anna-Maria. How wonderful to dine in the beautiful backyard of a private home. We started with light crepes filled with spinach and ricotta. We drank their excellent red sangria mixed with fruit. For a main dish my husband had the lasagna bolognese - which he said was incredibly good and the pasta melted in... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. What an incredible dining experience! The restaurant was a short cab ride from our hotel. The wait staff was friendly and nice. You really felt like you were eating at your friend's house. There aren't a lot of tables, so it feels intimate. We sat by the patio... More

This place doesn't advertise and the only way we new about it was a recommendation of friends. It's located in a private residence very nicely appointed. They don't turn tables so when you are seated it's yours for the evening. Our food was good and fresh and the service was outstanding. It's great for Aruba but if you want fantastic... More

My husband and I visit Aruba every year and a visit would not be the same without a trip to Anna Maria's Italian restaurant. The food is homemade prepared by Anna Maria and her husband Christian. The food always comes out hot and delicious. The ambience is also wonderful. You actually feel like you're in an Italian Villa. The wait... More
