We just got back from Aruba and one of the highlights of our trip was Anna-Maria's! We had made our reservations the week before we left by emailing Chris. He was super nice and helpful! My husband is Italian-American, and he is very discerning about Italian food. Even though they have an extensive menu, they are also very accommodating with "mixing and matching" items. For example, DH wanted the gnocchi but also a meat with it, so he got the chicken parm with gnocchi and a bolognese sauce on the gnocchi. I also got the chicken parm and included an order of ravioli. We also got the bruschetta and a spinach-ricotta crepes for appetizers. Everything was great! DH LOVED the food, especially the gnocchi. For dessert, I got this flan-creme brulee type dish (I forgot its name) that was fantastic and DH got the cannoli -- Chris came out and said they had just made the cream filling, and DH could definitely taste it! The shell was crunchy and the filling amazing.
Overall, we loved the setting of Anna-Maria's and it's small, family-like atmosphere. It was so great to not be in a big restaurant surrounded by tons of other people, and I think Chris has a true gem with Anna-Maria's. We told at least 6 other people about Anna-Maria's before we'd even left Aruba, and we have friends going to Aruba soon that we gave Chris's card to. We will definitely be back on our next trip!
