We were also lucky to stumble upon this little restaurant on an evening with live music. The chef and owner, even the servers, were all so open and friendly. I asked for some salsa (hot sauce) and it turns out they make it themselves from the chilli plants growing in the restaurant! We had the italian menu and everyone was just "mm-ing" and "aah-ing" after ever bite. The bread is fresh, the wine is spectacular. I just have to recommend the Chilean wine called VillaGolf -Hole in One (I think it's a pinot noir). We can't find it in Canada, or even America, so we are just about to see if we can get it shipped in by special request. It is THAT good, and a stellar price in the restaurant. So, if you're feeling a bit worn out from the buffet at the resort or you just fancy a night out, walk to this darling place on your way into San Jose Old Town and treat yourself! The ambiance is quaint and could be very romantic!
