We had a very warm welcome and some great, thin-crust pizza. The staff speaks English quite well, and you can even order dessert from the bakery next door if you want more options than the restaurant offers.

Pizza was awesome. Service was even better. Setting is right next to the road, so it's not a perfect setting, but the food and service make it worth it. I would head back to this place in a heartbeat. We had 4 different pizza's and they were all great! Don't drive by this without stopping.

Anchio Restaurant we rate as the BEST Welcome we had in all our travels throughout Costa Rica.... The wood pizza was excellent. We returned the following evening for more.

Had some pasta and pizza here, which was quite authentic Italian and very tasty. The service was very friendly and helpful, so we can recommend this place to anyone looking for fine Italian food in La Fortuna.

My girlfriend and I stopped here for an early dinner while in the Arenal region. We sat on the patio, where we greeted by a terrific waiter who spoke excellent English. While we sat on the patio, looking at the beautiful mountains, rain began to pour all around us, but we stayed dry as we watched the people on the... More

We had the pleasure to enjoy a great Italian pasta and calzone with a glass of wine in Anch'io. The waitress was super friendly and from the start we felt very welcome. The portions are huge (and you receive a complementary salad and garlic breads). I definitely recommend it!

Pizza prepared in a real fireplace (brick kiln). Good taste!!Free appetizers, also nice free drink at the end. Limited choice of desert. No special coffee like cappuccino or espresso. So go for the main course and enjoy.

Off-season and nearly empty, but very nice waitress and delicious pizza, welcoming atmosphere on the edge of town. Received complimentary glass of limoncello and a 15% discount at the end of the meal (no idea why). A nice break from the rice and beans food.

Just a block or two away from the hubbub, [thankfully], we were thoroughly satisfied with this meal. Checkered tablecloths, lovely ambience, attentive and quick service. Someone working in a local hotel mentioned this place and we wandered over with low expectations. The wood fired pizza brought us straight back to our Italy experiences and the pastas, all made in-house were... More
