This is one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Costa Rica. We go there a lot for lunch on weekends as it has a lovely open feel in the middle of a garden. The service is excellent, and Marco the owner is always there. Great food.

This place is a hidden Gem. It is located within a hotel near the hotel we stayed at. It has a genuine home made Italian food. The owner is ever present. The setting is extremely charming and cozy too.

We went there as it is close to the posada hotel where we stayed. Not the cheapest place but the price is worthwhile! Quality and taste of the food is amazing. Chef is Italian and you feel it. Pasta are homemade and delicious. Pizza are excellent too. I recommend this place to anyone.

The menu is excellent and they take great pride in their wine list keeping all wines at appropriate temperature. Clientele run from families to couples enjoying a romantic evening. The chefs prepare seafood exquisitely.
