Recently visited Puntarenas..Great little coastal town. Referred to this restaurant by a local and was not lead astray. Started with the wine list..in a country of "We have Sauvignon Blanc", this little gem of a restaurant had Pinot Grigio. Nice option. Ordered Caprese Salad and Pizza. Delicious. Service was spot on.
