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.

This is a bit of the main path of quepos but worth finding. We tried the pizza and pasta and both were wonderful. Thin crust pizza that 2 can easily share one. We also tried many scoops of their many favors of ice cream...all were a hit! Plus the price for four was very affordable.

This was such an amazing find in Quepos! I never expected to find good Italian food in Costa Rica but, sure enough, this was some of the most authentic Italian I have ever had. My family and I have lived in Europe for several years and traveled all around Italy and the pizza and pasta was better than in Sicily... More

No one in our party was impressed. Salad over priced not at all good it was more of a mince than salad. Pizza's are small by our... More
