“Wow - great menu and wine list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Glad we took a cab, as I would cringe at trying to navigate their as a tourist. What can I say... I had salmon risotto, my daughter had gnocchi. We got a decent Cabernet to enjoy with our meal, and they had a really nice wine selection. Decor is very nice, clean, and kind of artsy. Separate rooms give you the ability for larger private groups and make it a bit or intimate. Nice dinnerware, linens, etc. You sit down take a look around, and hope that the food is as good as the place feels like it should be. You won't be disappointed with this place. My daughter travels down to Costa Rica for business and says she try's to eat there once every time she travels down here. If that's not a good enough recommendation, I don't know what you are looking for. We are here in San Jose for 8 days, it's now day 4 and I'm wondering if we can eat there again... Or perhaps twice.

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My wife and I have a very good dinner here recently. Everything we had was great and the service was very good. The menu was varied and inovative. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. We paid about $110 for two, including a bottle of wine.

“Good traditional Italian...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Good cross-section of traditional Italian dishes with a well-rounded wine-list. Desserts were innovative and well-executed. Overall one of the gems in San Jose.

“A Great Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you want to have a nicer restaurant experience while you are n the Escazu area, I highly recommend this fantastic restaurant. Try and sit outside. All the pastas are really well done and the wine selection is terrific.

“Great upscale Santa Ana restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is over the top in greatness. Superb menu, wine list, sparkling water, and top notch service. We have traveled a lot for pleasure and work, and Bacchus competes nicely. We are lucky to be so close,,, it can be a frequent treat.
