As a local, I can honestly say this place is a gem! From the moment of your arrival until the moment you leave, you get the feeling that you are someone very special. The staff are accommodating, pleasant and attentive! I have tried most everything on the menu, and can say it is mouth watering (especially their creative specials). If you are in the mood for something that is not on the menu, just ask, they will create it for you. The pasta is home made, and divine, whatever you choose to have on it. The prices are fair and the portions just right, if you are looking for "American" size portions, go elsewhere. The wine selection is one of the best of any restaurant in Manuel Antonio, again, at a fair price. Sylvana, the head chef is truly talented and it has rubbed off on her son, they work together in harmony! Big thumbs up with a smile!
