Stopped by while visiting Arenal Volcano, lovely decor, relax and modern, fresh herbs and perfectly cooked pasta, the pizza made in brick oven is a must try. Andres is a perfect host, well versed in the menu and ingredients, congratulations to the owners and the the wonderfully staff.

We had the pizza and it was so good. I didn't think we would finish it all but we managed to. The kids loved it too.

Pizza (baked in a wood-oven) was yummy and my nephew enjoyed the pasta. The service was great and we enjoyed the change of pace from traditional Costa Rican food
