Last nights meal out with our family of 9, a birthday treat, was delicious from start to finish. The pastas were all wonderful, we had a great time selecting different dishes from their impressive menu. We all thoroughly enjoyed this gastronomic experience. Thank you Villa Italia.

this wayyyyyyy-out-of-the-way restaurant is a treat. One fellow is the maitre d & waiter for the whole evening. This is so clearly a labor of intense love for the craft--the menu is carefully selected, everything is homemade, and I'm pretty sure that the entire restaurant is the maitre d, the chef, and helper in back. and WOW. a dozen or...

We were looking for a nice Italian place and found this on trip advisor. It was a little scary getting to the restaurant but this place was amazing. The appetizers were to die for, we each ordered extra dishes to pass and everyone one was mouth watering to say the least. Dessert was very good as well. The total cost... More

So while on a family vacation to Playas del Coco, we ran into a expat from Canada operating a Soda Hamburger stand. He clued us into some great local spots, one of them being Villa Italia. We tried going on Thursday night without reservatons but the place was packed and does not take any walk-ins. We were able to get... More

The place is fantastic, a jewel in the middle of Playas del Coco. The owners run the place, the personal service that we got made us feel as if we were having dinner with friends.

Only 8 tables here, with nice atmosphere on covered outside patio. Andre took good care of us, very gracious service; his wife Susanna does the cooking and man, can she cook! It was probably our favorite dining experience in Playa del Coco. The homemade pasta and ravioli are EXCELLENT! We dined here 3 times because the mouth watering dishes were... More

Charming atmosphere, even down to the ladies room. Great Calamari Salad. Part-way through dinner, we were surprised to see familiar new guest entering - recent CR Presidential candidate John Araya !

It is definitely off of the beaten path but well worth it. Food wine and service were excellent. I would say it is a must, especially for those who are traveling to the area and are looking for the hidden gem.
