A piece of Italy in Costa Rica

We went for a pizza with some white wine and liked the atmosphere very much. The waiters were very friendly and the food was delicious. Also the laidback house music in the background and a huge variety of Italian icecreams are worth mentioning

We went here because we were craving pizza. The pizza was wood-fired and great. There were four of us and we each ordered a different pizza. They all were marvelous! The atmosphere was typical Costa Rican. They had great wine and, of course, cervesa., The service was also very good. They also have wonderful gelato.

I'm from Chicago (home of great pizza, not speaking of deep dish) and really enjoyed this place. The pizza, pasta and... Calzone - best I ever had? In Costa Rica? Huh. We even had it delivered one night - very fast.

open air Italian restaurant near bus depot. Pasta is freshly made- I had ham and mushroom with light cream sauce. Overhead fans keep it comfortable. Watch the sunset on the Pacific from the nearby beach before dinner, then eat here and avoid the pricey restaurants with a sunset view. Take the bus to Quepos for 315 colones.
