“A great last dinner in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stayed nearby at the a Studio Hotel and walked to this restaurant. It was a great find and surprisingly, this Italian meal was one of our favorite in Costa Rica. If you are a dessert lover, get the "signature" dessert, I forget what it is called.

We were there as a couple but saw many business dinner groups as well. I definitely recommend and prices were reasonable.

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

The place is nice, not so much the surroundings, located in front of a highway is kind of noisy. Food is good but expensive. I do recomend the place.

“Was the best at the East of San Jose.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

I went today and ask for the gorgonzola steak, a carpaccio, pizza , etc.
The service was so so, food was eatable, but the main problem I had is that we found a hair in the middle of one of the napkins, I called the manager and told him because we are clients until today , he did not said a word.

“Fine dining it is not”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

This place really isn't as good as the reviews suggest. The building

The carpaccio was actually one of the worst I've had. Overly thin, not enough time out of the freezer and bleeding on my plate. Seafood ravioli came in a watery salty sauce. On another occasion I ordered a pizza which I had to send back because the base was under cooked.

The place is still finding it's feet

I will say the wine list is pretty decent. Carpe Diem is still the #1 Italian place here.
