After two months in Costa Rica, finally found a true Italian restaurant with wonderful food and amazing view in the jungle! Feel like home.

Hard to see if you are looking for a sign or light from the dust road, but once you parked your car and walk up you are welcomed by the friendly staff. We were the only guests that evening and enjoyed the food. Lasagne was good (though the plate was hotter than the pasta) and the canelloni with spinach/ricotta was... More

Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Homemade pasta was cooked to perfection. Sauce a bit lacking in flavor. Try the Three Milk Cake...to die for!!

Never thought of having pizza in the jungle, but would do it again in a heartbeat! Sampled 3 distinctive flavors, all delectable!

Took the family here for pasta and pizza and it was a great hit! We were sorry there were no leftovers to carry home! We had the carbonara and it was delicious. Definitely homemade pasta, too. The pizza crust is thin and crispy, just like we like it. Very sweet people and we've been back again.

Had a nice meal of pizza here. Lots of selections. The pizza was solid. Worth the trip if your kids are wanting pizza for a change from rice and beans or fish.

We were shown a table on the terrace after which the owner almost immediately asked if the white light above the table didn't bother us too much and offered a better, more intimate, candle lit table. An authentic warm welcome can always charm us. The menu choice is well balanced and offers a range of typical italian antipasti, primo's with... More

This is a lovely restaurant which has a relaxed atmosphere and serves wonderful authentic Italian dishes. We loved it so much that we ate here 3 times as there was so much on the men that we wanted to try. If I could give it six stars then I would!
