Amazing!

This place was very, very good! When you're in Costa Rica you must have the pizza. Happy cows here make happy cheese! Our 3rd time to Flamingo beach area and very impressed with this restaurant! We were married at the Flamingo Resort in 2012.

We've been coming for years, but sorry to say, we think food has gone downhill. Portions are very small and selections seem limited. No longer can get small fried calamari, which was delicious. Now they are medium size and some fried some grilled. Yuk. We won't be going back. Too bad, was always a fave for us.

Something changed since last year, and not for the better. The tropical caprese salad used to be something special and delicious, but they changed it completely and now it's a disappointing mess. Of the three entrees we ordered, one was good, one just competent, and one very disappointing. We didn't stay for dessert and won't be back.

We ate there twice. We had pizza the first time and it was so good we came back again. The first time we ate there was a slow night and the service was impeccable. The second time we ate there it was fairly busy. Our waiter (a little gruff) only took our order and then disappeared for the rest of... More

We had the pizza for about $14 which was very good. It was a thin crust margharita pizza with buffalo mozzarella. They had other food on the menu but it all looked a bit pricy. We also got take out another night - pizza with prosciutto , mushrooms, and arugula. It was very good also. Will definitely go back for... More

The service at Angelina's was friendly, helpful, and efficient. We ate dinner there three times. Each night we had a different meal and neither one disappointed. The food tasted great; fresh and well prepared. The atmosphere was nice; dimmed lights, open air but not hot at all. It felt airy and comfortable, wasn't very noisy either. You could easily have...

This was the best service we had all week. My husband ordered steak with extra char and it was delicious. I ordered a seafood mix plate, and it was better than I ever had even in the states. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone. The service is exceptional

Our party of 10 including 3 families traveled out of our way to this most exquisite restaurant. The whole restaurant is open air and beautifully decorated. The food is on par with any of the fine gourmet restaurants we have been to in our travels. Carolinas, the owner, greeted us with warmth and made sure we were all taken care... More

Nice little place. Open air, bar, TV and good local dishes. Their attempts at American food, not so much. Maybe we caught them on a bad day but their french fries were, well different. The burger was cooked within an inch of it's life. Fish sandwich was fantastic as was CR slaw. Very reasonable prices.

We ate here over the New Year's holiday with 10 people -- adults and kids. We went early, and they were very accommodating. The kids really enjoyed the food, especially the steak pizza! Some of the pasta dishes were on the heavy/greasy side, but still good.
