Gem of a place

Wow. What a gem. If you're a veggie or vegan, or like Italian food, this place is worth a visit. Sylvia is an incredible chef and knows her Italian. We had the most delicious bruschetta ever followed by an aubergine lasagne. Don't bother with the soya substitiluts for meat, plenty of other... read more

…i absolutely cannot understand why a travel guide like lonely planet recommends a "restaurant" like this… the gnocchi were nothing special for the quite high price, the curry was served cold & kindly heated up with a microwave, wow very professional! both meals had not really a taste & everything seemed frozen & simply heated up, ups, no sorry the...

We were a group of 13 people and had made a reservation, but when we arrived, they were not ready for us. The service was very slow. The food was ordinary.

My daughter and I arrived in Samara in the dark and needed a place to stay on our drive down the coast. I met the owner (Sylvia I think was her name) and she was super nice. I didn't get a chance to eat because of my picky daughter but it looked and smelled amazing. Sylvia made me feel like... More

This was our second trip to Samara and we were happy to find this restaurant, especially a vegetarian restaurant. The pasta was delicious and fresh and the service was really friendly. We ate there twice. The 4 cheese gnocchi was so good. We also had the plantain/chive gnocchi and the mushroom fettuccine. Everything was good.

We were passing through town and we ran out of daylight. The road to Nosara is treacherous at night for the unfamiliar. We were in a bit of a bind and needed a room for the night. Our host was super nice and gave us a very good deal. The rooms are quite basic. My wife and I only had... More

As veggies we wanted to try this place. We did and we were very disappointed, especially given the high prices. I had the pumpkin ravioli which was good with a plain white sauce that needed more flavour. My wife had the chive gnocchi which was bland. The Salad was OK, but lacked verve. My cheese cake dessert was almost inedible.... More

We are so glad we got to eat at this restaurant during our brief stay In Samara. The Chef/Owner is Italian (recently came form Italy) and her food is just like eating in Italy. I am gluten free and can no longer eat many of my beloved foods, especially when restaurant eating, and she even made me a gluten free... More

Super fresh Italian inspired vegetarian food for everyone. LOVED everything that we had. The pumpkin ravioli with a cashew cream sauce was amazing. We had big carnivores with us and they were totally happy with their pasta dishes and wanted to go back for a second night. Service is wonderful and the chef really cares about what she serves and...

Went for a vegan dinner, we were the only people in the restaurant and it took 45 minutes for my husband to get his meal and then my meal came about a hour later. The service is the worst I have experienced, I had to get up and go to the bar to get my own drink. Will NEVER go... More
