This is the worst restaurant this reviewer has ever been! The food, although pretentious was diner food at the best. I ordered a NY steak medium cooked that the restaurant argued was imported Angus Beef. The waiter brought a grey colored steak, dry and tasteless, that was simply inedible. When I explained the situation to the waiter, Da Marco the... More

Since we were staying at the Hotel Posada Grande (great place!) we wandered down the road to this italian restaurant which is on the same property. We were greeted warmly and the helpful service continued through our meal. We decided on the daily specials - a duck risotto and a shank roast - they were both rich and tasty. For... More

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.

The tomato sauce is by far the best in Costa Rica. Fishes are always tasty and fresh. The new niccoise salad with fresh tuna... More

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.
