The pizza was passable at best, and the rice dish our daughter had was dreadful. Service was friendly (which is normal here), but that was not nearly enough to make up for the quality of the food. We should have known when we saw the place was empty in the middle of the dinner hour!

Despite a charming interior, the pizzas were below average, not in size -one for two is big enough- but they were undercooked and covered with tons of poor mozzarella cheese -disgusting-. Add to this the insistance of the cashier to pay cash instead of CC and you'll understand to pass your way.

My fiance and I read the reviews and decided to eat here. Due to the raving pasta reviews, we decided to both order pasta. The result was very disappointing. My pasta was still uncooked and it didn't have bacon but rather ham. My fiance's carbonara was made with white alfredo sauce. They also charged us $8 for a bottle of... More

We happened upon this restaurant when we first arrived in Monteverde after a long and unnerving drive up the mountain road. We were the only people in the restaurant, but it was about 1:30 p.m. We ended up having a very good lunch. The pizza was OK, but the pasta dishes were the true highlight. Fun drinks are available for... More

This restaurant was fantastic! After looking for a good meal at a decent price we decided to just bite the bullet and spend a bit more for good food. To our surprise this restaurant was both great food, outstanding service, and a better price than we have paid any where in Costa Rica to date. Advertise, advertise, advertise! This restaurant...

After 2 weeks in Costa Rica and mostly eating in cheap Sodas we ended up in Monteverde where you hardly find a "local" restaurant. We chose Dikary a Restaurant and Pizzaria located a bit outside the center. The price was normal for a tourist restaurant: 18 dollars for a meat dish and 8-10 dollars for a pasta/pizza. We had Pizza... More

They played a very nasty game. Prices in the menu are given in USD (excl. service and taxes). When you pay they translate it into Colones using one exchange rate, add service ans taxes and then translate back to USD using another exchange rate. In total, this way they wanted me to pay 5 USD more (on a bill of... More

For $8 you get a very large and tasty homemade pizza. We thought it would be a "personal" size, but definitely large enough for sharing with many fresh toppings. The pasta was also a very generous portion and freshly made. Service was friendly and good. Definitely worth going.

Although the pizza was pretty good, all our entrees were overly salty, so much so that I couldn't eat mine.
