Il Perugino, San Juan

105 Calle Cristo
Old San Juan
San Juan
Puerto Rico 00901
Tel: 787 722 5481's insider take:

It's a few blocks from the trendy eateries on Calle Fortaleza, so this elegant Italian restaurant in Old San Juan is off the radar of the cruise-ship crowd. A favorite with well-heeled locals, Il Perugino is traditional in all the right ways. Dishes like marinated salmon with fresh chives and pork fillet with blueberries are deliciously simple; and even in more complicated dishes such as ravioli with chicken liver, spinach, and black truffles, the individual flavors shine. The mostly Italian wines, stored in an old cistern, are expertly paired with the food.

Open Sundays through Fridays 6:30 to 11 pm, Saturdays noon to 3 pm and 6:30 to 11 pm.
