Great Italian and Quality Service

I read the reviews and figured I would see for myself. Well....Very nice staff. An attendant (watchman) helps you park on the street. The service is not slow, it is paced. Remember, it's Costa Rica and Tico time is the norm.

I believe this is one of the most italian-like pizza you can get in Heredia. The prices are okay for what they offer. Awesome pastas, great wine, lovely environment. The service is marvelous and very fancy too.

I've been to this place many, many times throughout these years and I keep loving the veggie pizza named MANAGUA. Thin pasta, well sort out veggies all cooked in the fire oven, and a great garlic & olive oil as a dressing... fully recommended! Great value price spot. The mushroom risotto is also worth trying

Pizza, antipasto, salad everything delicious. Probably the best place at Heredia for Italy cuisine. The price is ok and the place is quite and nice. One of my favorite places.

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

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.

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!
