“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The place was almost empty, which made us suspicious, but the food was better than your average Italian restaurant and the service was superb. Nice for a romantic dinner.

“Great Italian cuisine at reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I ordered in at the hotel twice from D'Amalfi and both times food was wonderful. Pizza one night was worthy of my hometown, Chicago, and Sausage Penne the other night was top notch.

“Terrible !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

I went for a business lunch at their New location at Plaza Iscatzu.
We were practically the only table, and the service was extremely slow.
The bread was at least 3 days old., and the appetizers barely good.
For entrees we order a seafood pasta and a fish. After 15 minutes they came back telling us they didn't have the type of fish we ordered, so we decided to order the "dorado a la sal". After another 10 minutes the owner came back telling us the fish supplier was on his way to deliver goods, and if we could wait 10 to 15 minutes more !! Sounds like a joke, but true !!
Decided for something else and order the check.
Never going back !! No service, no quality.

“Best place for us to enjoy dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We are living since one year inEscazú and tried many restaurants. This is our absolutely favourite place, great dinner, friendly staff, very flexible and all is so delicious. Additionally Fridays and Saturdays you can enjoy music while dining. If you do not want to take a risk, go there, Pino is a great cook !!!
