I enjoy Bacchus very much. From the very first time I walked into the welcoming dining room, to the last time I ordered pick up for lunch at my office, I have been extremely satisfied with all they offer.

I never go to Costa Rica without having a meal at Baccus Italian Restaurant in Santa Ana. It is one of the best Italian Restaurants this side of Italy.

Went with 12 in our tour group. Had quiet room. Waitstaff was cordial and attentive. Food was well proportioned and everyone liked theirs. Some of the medium done steaks were very red still, but not too bad. The steak I had was very tender. Desserts were adequate and could be skipped.

Excellent food. We had the shrimp tartare, the grilled octopus carpaccio with a sauce of black olives is a secret tip. The risotto with octopus ink was years ago without any additional seafood and I liked it better. Now too much inside. Also a speciality you do not find a lot not even in Italy. After having tried a good... More

The place was nice, it had the correct decoration and seemed to be a fine dinning restaurant nevertheless when we ordered the food we were absolutely disappointed. The grilled octopus was super dry and hard to eat. The risotto lacked flavor and consistency. Definitely never going again, hard to believe they offer real Italian food.

Since Santa Ana is a bit hotter that. escazu , sitting outside is for those who love the heat . It is ac inside. Food is always excellent and they have a good wine selection... More
