“Better than ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

My wife and me have been in Da Marco twice this month. As mention to Marco, the Italian owner, the food has improve a lot in the last months. Very fresh and tasty. Like being Italy. The tomato sauce is by far the best in Costa Rica. Fishes are always tasty and fresh. The new niccoise salad with fresh tuna is outstanding. Always we find new dishes with Marco's special touch.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went there as it is close to the posada hotel where we stayed.
Not the cheapest place but the price is worthwhile!
Quality and taste of the food is amazing. Chef is Italian and you feel it. Pasta are homemade and delicious. Pizza are excellent too. I recommend this place to anyone.

“Great Pasta and amazing service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We went there thinking about a good italian restaurant but not that much. But what a surprise... First the restaurant is beautiful and the menu has a lot of choice... but what we ate was amazing!!!! Really good pasta. We didn't think that it would be that good.

We didn't regret our choice and we would be back there for sure!!!

“Great Food and Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The menu is excellent and they take great pride in their wine list keeping all wines at appropriate temperature. Clientele run from families to couples enjoying a romantic evening. The chefs prepare seafood exquisitely.

“The best pasta ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Just after one month we went back to Marco, I ordered a pasta with shrimps and asparagus, fabulous, the best pasta I ever eat in all my life!!!
The service as usual is good and the atmosphere is relaxing.

It’s a peaty that we live at 4 hours away…if not we’ll eat more often here, and anyhow for a pasta like this is 4 hours of driving is nothing!!!
