“Excellent Christmas Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had the restaurant to ourselves for Christmas dinner. The pizza was excellent, as was the panna cotta we had for dessert. Service was great from a friendly, english speaking waitress who also helped us find our way to the restaurant after we mistakenly took a backroad from Cabuya up to Delicias and got lost along the way. Prices are not cheap for food in this part of Costa Rica, but once you make the trip here yourself, you will realize that it isn't easy or inexpensive to get food ingredients delivered. I thought the price was very fair for the excellent quality of the food. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also very nice.

“Bring cash, a car, and an appetite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

After reading the raves here we were eager to go to Tierra. Because a previous reviewer said that its a quarter mile up the road from the turn just past the river, we thought it would be a nice walk. It's over 3 miles from the base of the Montezuma River! And given that the restaurant opens at 5:30, walking in the dark is a certainty! Do not attempt this! Driving is the ONLY way to get to this restaurant! Cash only too - good thing we had that. Food was fantastic. Clearly this is a popular place for the ex-pat community. Worth the trip, if you have a car. There are gluten free options. Two entrees and one glass of wine were $40.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just outside of Montezuma in Delicias, this Italian restaurant was a perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food, music and outdoor ambience were like a dream, and Stephanie's excellent service and recommendations are top notch. Go there!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The pasta dishes are to die for. The appetizers were wonderful too, and they are excellent at catering to vegetarians. The service was great and it is definitely worth the cab ride a little ways out of town! Be sure to try their homemade limoncello with rosemary!

“OMG Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Well, to get there you have to drive up a very scary hill so go when it's light out, coming back down is better. Once there you will be treated with a breathtaking scene of flora and fauna, a magnificent Italian kitchen (ask to take a peek), and glorious food! The owners are a charming family from Italy who really know their stuff!
