“Very good italian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Get there earlier than 7 otherwise it will be full! In a packed restaurant... the food must be good! And it is! Very good pizza (wood oven!) we really enjoyed it.

“Very good food & service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went to Tramonti at the recommendation of someone who worked at the hotel where we were staying & we weren't disappointed! We went after going on a night hike, so the ice cold beer tasted extra good! I had ravioli, but can't remember what the filling was. The pasta wasn't as tender as what I've had before, but the sauce & filling I remember being exquisite. After we finished dinner someone from the restaurant called a cab for us...a very nice evening!

“Not bad, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a verypopular restaurant. The meal that we had was fine but I wouldn't say it was above average. The staff is very nice and the prices are reasonable. I'd eat at Johhny's pizzeria and italian restaurant (which is nearby) before eating here again; but expect to pay more at Johnny's -- "you get what you pay for"

“Don't waste a minute eating here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Admittedly a crowd of 42 people can create problems for some restaurant kitchens. We started our meal at 7 pm and were not finished until 10. This is an Italian style restaurant and the meals are not that difficult to prepare. This was entirely too long to wait for bad (taste not spoiled fare) food. To cap everything off after the long wait we asked for two bottles of water to take back to our rooms. We were really surprised to find that both bottles had been opened and recapped--not sealed just the caps were replaced. In my mind this is an act of fraud and when the tour director was apprised of this situation he said he would tell people to check the tops before purchasing. He should have placed this firm on a "NO VISIT" list for future tourists!

“Tasty Italian with good portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This restaurant gets pretty crowded and full of tourists some nights. They serve pretty good Italian food for being in Costa Rica, and the portions are very generous. I recommend it if you're looking for a nice sit down dinner (that does not consist of casado) after a long day of activities.
