We all had a pasta course and split a pizza. Pizza was okay but a bit watery. The spaghetti with meat sauce was above average. Just not a refined place which would explain why we were the only table that didn't have any young children with us.There are 2 or 3 other italian restaurants in the area that are phenomenal... More

Our family enjoyed the pizza so much, we visited this restaurant twice for dinner. The crust is fantastic. I also had a terrific salad. Definitely worth the money.

Food was great and it was a 15 min walk from Playa Guiones. We went twice we liked it so much. Great menu and they had live music one night. If found out that they will deliver. so if your too tired from surfing to get food, they'll bring it to your hotel.

You spoiled us during the 4 years that we... More

The ambiance of this restaurant was interesting to us with a gravel floor. The food however was very tasty. We tried a salad, pizza and sautéed chicken with mushroom cream sauce. All very good, the salad especially was loaded with nice vegetables.

$10 any pizza on Saturday night is a deal! We had them deliver the pizza to our rental for just an additional $3. They guy arrived on his motorcycle with the pizza still piping hot! It was good pizza, again the crust is thin, but that's how they do it in Costa Rica, but the toppings were generous and the... More

My husband had the catch of the day, sea bass, and it was very good. It was a little greasy. The veggies and the fish had way too much seasoning on them. I had the Greek pizza and it was very good. Nice crunchy crust, fresh toppings. Service is slow, the waiters and the bartender were more interested in the... More

We had great pesto pizza and a large salad. Both were very good. I had no problems with slow service. Our waiter was very efficient!

The food was great but I was disappointed at the dollar to colones rate I paid. Felt it was a bit of a rip off. Most places do the exchange at between 400-500 colones but these guys did it at a lower price. It's a shame because it tarnished the experience. There was live music that night which was nice.
