“Nice People Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This cute Italian take-away is right near the German Bakery, 10 minutes walk from the beautiful Lake Arenal. Instead of buying an expensive croissant at the overrated Bakery, stop at this friendly restaurant where you will taste awesome -real- Italian food. The owners make great pizzas, veggie cakes, lasagna, roast chicken, focaccia, wines, desserts... You name it, they've got it! And it's 100% ITALIANO, I have checked myself (I am half Italian!) and they get the *real stuff* delivered on a daily basis. We have young kids and they simply loved it, chatting with the owners is also fun (they speak English, Spanish and Italian!), it's mainly for take away, but they have a table out front where one can stop for a yummy break before exploring the area. The prices are also good, we were often treated to delicious "extras" for no charge. Thumbs up! Go there for a pic-nic take away and head straight to the lake for a swim.

“New food-to-go in Nuevo Arenal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Good take-out Italian specialties: lasagna (meat, chicken, vegetarian), fresh pastas (ravioli, tortellini, fettuccine), pasta sauces, pizzas, desserts. They also do roast chicken, pork, ribs, fish and other items if ordered ahead. We had the lasagna, pizza and an Italian flan. All were delicious. The proprietress carefully explained how best to heat up the lasagna and it was perfect. Each serving was enough for two. Definitely a place to keep on your list if you are in the area. They do have one table outside if you want to eat on the premises.
