nice place for a quiet dinner

well located in Heredia Downtown close to the National University. Prices are not too expensive. Pizza is their specialty for sure. Not too impressed by the pasta dinner.

Good food, nice atmosphere, terrible horrible slow service. Waitstaff was terrible! We felt that we would have been better off serving ourselves. Food was good, pizza was unique and tasty. Time for food to come out was too long though. You should only visit this plave if you have time to wait for the food and patience to deal with... More

Pleasant restaurant in downtown Heredia. The menu is varied, but primarily Italian fare, with an emphasis on their crisp crust pizza. The pizza is good and basic, and pretty typical of the type of pizza made in Costa Rica. Good wines, service and prices.

From the very few options for dining in downtown Heredia, this is a good choice, however not outstanding.

This was a hidden gem! The food is fabulous- we had rigatoni primavera and a simple margarita pizza topped off with tirimasu. The staff was awesome and on a Sunday afternoon this place is full of local Costa Ricans out in their Sunday best. No need to go all the way to Rome!

I love this place. I go several times per month. They have fabulous pizza with sides of terrific flavored oils. I also like the attempts to appear Roman. Lots of great old photographs. They will be happy to talk with you in English or in Spanish (perhaps others). A great place for pizza and beer. I've also had various pasta... More

It is nice for having a pizza that is not either home made or Pizza hut. Try the pasta as well, it is great, the prepare it right there.

We ate a regular pizza, 2 glasses of wine and a Cheese Cake. Price is high if you compare with others similar restaurants. It's not an spectacular pizza. Service is good, the restaurant was full but we get our order fast.
