The owner greeted us and we were seated immediately. The restaurant reminds me of sitting down in a restaurant in Europe… not in Panamá.
I ordered Embutidos as a starter … it is Milano salami and smoked ham… along with two sodas. It was served with a basket of sliced fresh French bread. I knew we were going to need some time for my wife to decide as the menu offers a large variety of dishes.
She decided on fettuccine pasta served with Bolognese sauce. I ordered the Chicken Milanese with a side dish of sautéed artichoke hearts.
The owner explained that the pasta is made fresh every morning. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner (closed Sunday night and Monday). No pizza served here… just great pasta dishes with some excellent meat or chicken plates.
My wife was surprised, and very impressed, that there was an Italian Restaurant of this high quality here in Chitré.
For dessert we shared a slice of Torta Napoleone.
Unfortunately, the restaurant does not accept credit cards… just cash.
We will be back as this is the only place in town to get great Italian dishes…
