Good sanwichew

I ate a L'Angolo sandwich and really liked it. The bread is not dense or cake-y and the ingredients are light and taste authentic. The only downside was the drink: I ordered green tea and got a refrigerated, sweetened bottled tea, which is not what I'd expect. The food took a really long time... read more

As a lot of others have stated, the service here was terrible. A friend and I went becauae every time we passed it, it smelled great. Although we didn't have to wait very long for our insanely OVERPRICED (not only overpriced quantity-wise, but quality and taste) food, but it took at least 30 minutes to receive our bill (after the...

I have been living here for a few years as this is by fay one of my favorite places. The food is always fantastic and so fresh. Everything is cooked to order so be prepared to wait a bit for your food if it is busy, but so worth the wait. The bruschetta wit tomato and ricotta is one of... More

Everything we ordered was delicious, clearly used with fresh ingredients, and not too heavy or greasy. The L'Angolo Caprese salad and cappuccino were awesome!

if home-made pasta, with fresh sauces prepared to your tastes, appeal to you, then the simple but clean decor will not be noticed. Angelo's will not disappoint. Year after year the best meal in CR.

I was looking for food in Quepos that was vegan/vegetarian, and stumbled upon this small place. The food was excellent. I can't remember the exact dish I had, but it was some sort of garlicy nocchi. I had to wait a long time for the food, but it was worth the wait.

Just by entering, you can smell the true garlic scent. Loving the fresh homemade italian pasta. If you want to feel lime eating in Italy, you must try it.

After a very long wait ( not uncommon in Costa Rica), we received our order. Very tasty indeed, but small portion , mostly pasta , very little else. More like a side dish, not a main course, but the price was that of a main course for standards in that area. Also would have liked to see oil and vinegar... More

Cute Italian place on the corner. Great sandwiches for lunch and a beautiful Caprese salad. The AC really helps on a 32 Celsius day that registers 42 on the humidex
