I have been to this restaurant 4-5 times during my stay in Hotel Posada Canal Grande and all of them were a success! From the 1st visit with a BDay celebration dessert on the house to every one of them with a little treat bone for my dog, the chef of the restaurant and Minor who always was there... read more

Had a wonderful experience, with great food and cordial efficient service for our wedding and the party after. Marco and staff did an admirable job of putting it together with the assistance of my bride.. The food was perfect and uniquely flavorful. The surroundings classical Italian paintings and formidable furnishings added to the flavor of this fine restaurant...

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.
