“The best pasta ever!!”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Just after one month we went back to Marco, I ordered a pasta with shrimps and asparagus, fabulous, the best pasta I ever eat in all my life!!!
The service as usual is good and the atmosphere is relaxing.

It’s a peaty that we live at 4 hours away…if not we’ll eat more often here, and anyhow for a pasta like this is 4 hours of driving is nothing!!!

“Tasty & varied Italian Menu”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

Thought the food was scrumptious but service left a lot to be
desired. Hate it when you are out for a nice, casual and hopefully long-lasting evening to enjoy dinner and the waiter
virtually throws every course down one after the other, even
before you have finished the first one. Will not return for this
reason. Also knowing we were American's and just moved
here, waiter spoke not a word of English nor did they even try
to bring anyone else over for us to communicate with and that
particular evening we were the ONLY four people in the restaurant so it certainly wasn't because they were too busy.

“pretty average”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

The food was pretty average overall. We were most impressed with the caesar salad that me and my husband shared. It was huge and had sardines in it which to me makes it an excellent caesar salad.
My husband got the Talapia gnocchi - seemed a little under cooked.
I got the gorgonzola sweet pepper ravioli - was good but not amazing or anything

We were staying about 5 minutes away so it was a nice option for us. I wouldn't travel any farther than that but if you're staying close by it's a nice choice.

“Grande!!”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Amazing restaurant, great wine list and an amazing champagne!!
Great Italian experience!!!!!! Cosy Atmosphere, perfect Service.
Anyone who is travelling to Costa Rica and San Jose should stop in this restaurant and enjoy the cuisine of the Chef Marco.
It is perfect for business lunch or dinner, great with family or to have a great evening with friends. The outside area is also very comfortable.
Grande ristorante Da MArco.
