“Customer service pay$ off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Me and a large group of friends walked went here for dinner during our annual January retreat to MA. We were seated at a beautiful table overlooking the gardens and the waitstaff were very attentive. Well, everything was seemingly perfect and just got better from there. The owner came over to our table to talk about the food - passionately and eloquently. He then proceeded to send over some appetizers "on the house" to try - meatballs, tuna and one of the best pizzas I have ever had. Needless to say, his attention and and enthusiasm were infectious and we had a fantastic meal. We weren't even considering ordering pizza.

The next night we went back JUST FOR THE PIZZA. It was delicious.

This is a great restaurant and we can't wait to go back next January.

“Delicious Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We ordered take out on our first night. Though they forgot the dressing for the salad, luckily we had some oil/vinegar, their popular shrimp/pesto/tomato/garlic pizza was delicious!! The thin crust was just the way we like it and they did not skimp on anything - especially the garlic - yum!!

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Every dish which we tried was very good. I do not normally order pizza when in the tropics, but Victoria's was particularly good. Oscar was an excellent waiter and the bartender and guitarist also knew their crafts. We will be back, God willing.

“Outstanding in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

My family's first trip to Costa Rica and was extremely happy with the vacation. My family ate at Victoria's 4 nights in a row and it was better each time. The staff, especially Oscar, took care of us like we were family and we could not have felt more relaxed in there. The pepperoni pizza is very good as well as the Shrimp cocktail. The manager gave my mother a bottle of wine and my brought three desserts all compliments of the house on our last night. We told them to hold our table for next year.

“Fantastic dinner in every respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

When we first arrived at this restaurant my first thought was that the menu was a bit bland and overpriced. Well, was I ever wrong!

The live entertainment, service, wine, appetizers and main dishes were all fabulous. Like, as good as a great restaurant in Italy fabulous. As a lover of Italian cuisine I am always leery about eating at new Italian restaurants as most of them just can't seem to get the simple ingredients right. This was not the case at Victoria's. The food was divine.

I really wish that we had not chosen to eat at Victoria's on our last day in Manuel Antonio because I certainly would have eaten dinner there more than once.

My only comment would be to add house made tiramisu.

Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
