Three of us had a late lunch celebration at Di Bartolo and it was wonderful! We started with the grilled vegetable antipasti complimented by Italian cheeses and an amazing honey that was lightly spiced, and warm focaccia bread. We chose a Chianti that was delicious. I had the salmon entrée and had to bring it to go as I was full from the delicious antipasti. Our friend had ravioli and he loved it and my husband enjoyed a ceasar salad. The chef owner spoke with us and made recommendations, he is a delight and cares about the details. Highly recommend Di Bartolo- this is our favorite in San Jose!

The owner, Carlo, is an expert chef. He runs this fine dining restaurant with his wife and the family pride shows in the food. Portions are generous, perhaps too generous. The seafood is always fresh and they also make he best pizza in town.

The place is elegant but the food is not that great. The service is average. Good parking and well located on one of the main streets in Escazu. The restaurant has recently been remodeled.

Thank you for your visit and your feedback! We are pretty sure this is not something that happens often, since we NEVER receive comments like these. We only use top quality ingredients on our food (organic fresh vegetables, homemade pasta, fresh premium meat and sea food, imported Italian ingredients, etc.) which is prepared always by our top chef. Also, we usually pay keen attention to details like service, something that is backed up by our Ospitalità Italiana Awards among other recognition towards our excellent service, so we don’t know what would've been wrong when you visited us that made you feel like it was not worth it. Please accept our sincere apology, hopefully we will see you back soon and we will be able to make it up to you.
