Super sandwiches

We visited this place for lunch. It is a sandwich, coffee, ice cream bar - as well as an italian restaurant (can not judge that). The sandwiches we had (tuna, veggie, ham/cheese) were all very fresh. Juice as well, and the coffee very, very good. Nice service, and we sat outside. It is just outside... read more

The setting and service is what makes this restaurant stand out because Italian food in Costa Rica is really not what you're coming for to experience the culture.

After eating at Que Rico the night before my kids were asking for more pizza for lunch. We tried this place and it was average. The cheese pizza had ricotta cheese on the pie. The kids ate it but I wouldn't go back.

Very tasteful pizzas! Service is good... Trotter said that it are Italian pizzas and so it is... Recommended if you're a bit tired of the local food... :)

Pizza's were amazing and the gnocchi was very light. The spaghetti and tomato we ordered for the child was nothing great. Despite that, I'd still rate it the best Italian restaurant in La Forturna, mainly because of their pizza.

Great atmosphere. Friendly service. Native language and English speaking. We received a delicious free welcome shot along with our yummy meal! Joseph, our waiter, was a great! Locals and tourist claim this one as the best! Highly recommend.

This place was very close to our hostel, so the heavy downpours of the rainy season made it all the more appealing. We've eaten here twice already in our five day stay in La Fortuna. And, heck, we'll probably be back tonight, looking at the thunderclouds. Pizzas, pastas, wine, desserts. All good, and reasonably priced. Really friendly service. Can't fault... More

This is a really good restaurant. The pizza is very good. But the best...is the Brownies...it's really the best brownies that I ever eat.
