“Great Bruschetta & Mama-made food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

This little place down a dusty road off one of the main streets was good and the service was friendly. They served up authentic Italian foods with an attention to flavor. Amongst the best Italian places in town.

“good food at a good price”

Samara has a lot of restaurants and many are a bit pricy, but Al Manglar is reasonably priced for good food.

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

This place had an amazing pizza. The service, the setting was nice but pretty standard for the restaurants in the area but the pizza itself (which is the main thing at the end of the day in a pizza restaurant) was fantastic. Don't order wine by the glass though, it is not a good idea pretty much anywhere in Costa Rica :)
