“Use to be the best Italian restaurant in Costa rica .. What happened???”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

I know this restaurant for more than 10 years. Use to be the best Italian restaurant in Costa Rica. Last month while in Costa Rica I return. Big surprise .. same menu but the quality and quantity of the food is very poor. The Carpaccio is a collection of lettuce … hard to find a piece of salmon ... pasta was not “al dente” and the filling of the crab ravioli was mixed with some thing ... but sure it was not crab. Renso the owner was not present so I'm writing this review to let him know my experience.

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

If you want a decent meal try this place. Service is ok. Waiters don't speak much English, but you should be ok reading the menu. Try it, good food.

“Best pizza in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

We are New Yorkers living in Escazu for the past 2 years and the one thing that we havent missed is pizza because there really is a good amount of excellent pizza scattered around the country BUT we have Sal E Pepe exclusively in The San Jose area. If you like real, thin-crust pizza, this is your place!

The only problem i have ever had here was that I once ordered carpaccio and it was frozen.
The pastas are ok but their shine is really pizza.
