This restaurant surprised me, I've been working in Santa Ana for more than 5 years and I have never spotted the place. The location may send you the wrong signals, come on... let's try it! I promise you won't be disappointed!

My wife and I have been here many times over the years. It is consistently good with prompt service and delicious food. I would recommend the pizza and the calzones.

Have been there many times. Place is not particularly well decorated but it is real Italian food at reasonable prices. Very kid friendly. Mine love the pizza but they also have great non-carb options.

This little restaurant offers the best italian food in the west part of the city, close to Escazú. Don Alberto, the owner, will make sure you will have a great dinning experience.

We had our last meal in CR here. It was really good! It ended up being one of our favorite dinners in the country!

Ate here one night when staying at the hotel next to it. Food was good and tasted like it had arrived fresh from Italy. Would definitely eat here again.

This is an authentic Italian restaurant where the owner is always present. His staff work efficiently and with excellent standards! The food is some of the best and maybe the most consistent Italian food in all of Costa Rica. The menu is broad and they will improvise with the slightest encouragement as well.

We had a very Italian pizza. The crust was thin and tasty. The Grande size was just perfect for the two of us. See the picture. Very near Studio Hotel.

We have been eating here for over 3 years. My kids love to share their medio metro pizza and my husband and I love their calazones. Also, there is a glass wall so that kids can watch them roll out the dough.
