“Good food, but slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We were a party of 41, so it is possibly unfair to say the service was slow. We had steaks and although on the small size, were cooked as requested. Those who had pizzas seemed to also be impressed.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We were part of one of the coach tours mentioned in the reviews below. There were 35 of us and despite that the service was attentive and the wait for our food was reasonable. Actually I couldn't believe how quickly they got multiple pizzas out. We had the vegetarian pizza and really liked it. Everyone else in our group raved about the pizza. The pasta dishes were well received.They serve their bread with garlic and oil and chill and oil, both of which were good. I added both to the minestrone which was otherwise bland and unlike any minestrone I had ever had. The setting was attractive.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The place is nice, it is far away from Santa Elena donwtonw if you dont have a car, and it is a little pricy. However, the food is very very good with lots of options. I do think the quality of the ingredients was very good, but I do agree with some of the comments below that stated that the service was not so good. The restaurant is good and it gets full and there are only two and sometimes three waiters, which is very little for the place. If you want something else you will have to fight over the rest of the people to get some attention.

However, if you do go on a time that is not so bust, you will be happy. Many times this restaurant takes only reservations so be prepared.

“BEST PIZZA IN MONTEVERDE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Tramonti is located conveniently next to the best place to buy souvenirs in Monteverde (CASEM co-op), and is easy to find on the main road that runs between MV and Santa Elena where essentially everything is located.
The atmosphere of Tramonti is beautiful and plentiful with windows, allowing guests to enjoy the gorgeous naturaleza surrounding it. Tramonti is owned by a really friendly Italian family, and serves delicious thin crust pizza, as well as other Italian dishes.
Although it is a little on the pricey side, it is well worth it! Extras like garlic and hot pepper oils add to everything you smear it on. My favorite dish is the pesto gnocchi-amazing.
Just eat there.

“Itsa pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great fresh pizza at a great price in a nice little place. Hot and friendly. We had a veggie pizza and a pizza with sausage, cold beers, and homemade bread, all for a reasonable sum. Very clean and comfortable restaurant.
