Italy enjoys La Piccola Fontana


Just off a luxurious wing of El San Juan Hotel, La Piccola Fontana delivers plate after plate of delectable food nightly. From its white linens to its classically formal service, it enjoys a fine reputation. The food is straightforward, generous, and extremely well prepared. You’ll dine in one of two neo-Palladian rooms whose wall frescoes depict Italy’s ruins and landscapes. Menu items range from the appealingly simple (grilled filets of fish or grilled veal chops) to more elaborate dishes such as tortellini San Daniele, made with veal, prosciutto, cream, and sage; or linguine scogliere, with shrimp, clams, and seafood. Grilled medallions of filet mignon are served with braised arugula, Parmesan cheese, and balsamic vinegar. It’s like a piece of Italy in the Caribbean.
