I rely on Tripadvisor to discover reliable restaurants when traveling and this one did not disappoint. The menu consisted of many great options for italian food. Coming from the NY area, I know good italian food is difficult to find abroad, and although this place does not measure up to what I get back home, this place fit the bill... More

If you have to eat gluten free, do not hesitate at all to have dinner at this Italian restaurant!! The majority of the dishes on the menu can be prepared gluten free (including pastas, pizza). They even serve gluten free beer, but also have a good choice of excellent wines. Service was great; very kind, helpful and quick - would... More

I love this place. For a Business lunch or dinner it’s perfect, but it’s even better for a romantic dinner, the food its more than just well prepared, the presentation of its always a plus to me... The layout of the place, the ambiance and the service, are just the perfect combination of ingredients for a successful recipe.

I haven't seen the whole restaurant but we went upstairs where they have some four or five seperate rooms, nicely decorated and made up, ideal for four to six people meeting and eating and talking without being disturbed by others. The food is very nice, Italian, mediterranean if you wish, wide choice and great juices (ask for naturales). The place... More

I was intrigued that a Trip Advisor Award Winner 2013 and the # 8 rated San Jose, Costa Rica "restaurant is not there" per WYTraveler04 review on June 17, 2013. I had taxi cab driver call the restaurant phone number below name & get accurate directions. It's exactly where the other 54 TA reviewers found it!! It is on Avenida... More

This restaurant is a converted home where they have tables set up in various rooms all accessed by the hallway to the kitchen. Very homelike and with typical Italian fare. It is not expensive and the food is quite good. The staff is very accommodating, and the menu is extensive for such a simple restaurant. We liked it a lot.

We ate here in May 2013, our friendly concierge instructed the taxi driver how to get there, and we got there eventually! The menu is large but what we ate was lovely ( deep fried Brie and herby calamari to start then pizza and veal risotto for main). Portions are large so we couldn't finish so they boxed the rest...
