This is a must try if you visit Coco. I've lived here for 2.5 years and there are a handful of top restaurants in the area, this is one of them. The food, service and atmosphere are incredible and we are always treated as family. There are many great dishes but my wife and I love the truffle pasta, need... More

We went on the 29th of December for dinner and loved it. The pasta was the special of the day, gnocchi with Pinot Grigio and salmon and really I can't remember ever having a better one. The starter was very good too and the main course excellent. The panacotta awesome as well. The owners are great and even the assistant... More

I visited Villa Italia after hearing a recommendation from a friend, and had a truly amazing time and a delicious meal. The restaurant has wonderful, authentic food and a beautiful romantic setting and is well worth the visit if in the area. The owners truly welcome you and make you feel as though you're in the heart of Italy -... More

We were looking for a good Italian food restaurant while we were at playas del Coco, Guanacaste, I tried to search using my trip advisor app and found several places to go. Unfortunately we chose to first look at this place (Villa Italia) and when we got there the place was almost empty and as we entered this little place... More

Although the food was excellent, dinner was not time well spent. The service was poor at best. We were ignored and felt uncomfortable asking for anything. We were there with our young adult children so maybe we were not cultured enough for them to bother with. Reasonably priced. Reservations are a must.

Portion sizes were great. Get an appetizer because they were all great additions to the meal. Don't miss a chance fir a great... More

Excellent entrees well prepared and presented, the pastas were great , the filet was under cooked but was quickly corrected, all in all an enjoyable meal in a hidden location beautifully decorated, limited seating though , as it is husband / wife operated , only about can handle about twenty so I suggest reservations

Definitely not the best choice in Playa del Coco, but worth a visit if you're in town for a while and need variety. The atmosphere is great, the food basic, and the service staff rude.

The four of us are visiting Costa Rica for the first time. We met some folks who own a condo here that told us this was their favourite restaurant in Coco del Playas,Costa Rica. The restaurant is not easy to find, tucked away off the main drag in a back lane. But don't let the location fool you. The restaurant... More
