The menu has an excellent selection of delicious dishes prepared with great quality and good care, including warm homemade bread and pastas, steaks were particularly tender with... More

This restaurant is among my top three favorite in the country. The service is friendly and professional. The food is delicious and their wine selection is fantastic. A must visit for anyone staying in the Escazu/Santa Ana area.

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 to... 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.
