  • Claudia F.This is probably the best Cuban I've ever eaten. Everything was amazing - from the food to the service. Verdi Empanadas are the bomb. So is the gnocchi!!

  • Rachel AThe ceviche sampler is a good deal if you don't want to commit to just one. They do seafood so well! My seared sugar cane tuna was great

    55555 by Rachel A
