Very good atmosphere. The staff was really friendly and attentive. My wife and I ordered the spaghetti and a glass of wine. The spaghetti was very good. The dessert was ice cream followed by a limoncello. I recommend this restaurant.

Celeste eventually closed after it was taken over by new owners. Try Camparino in the mall in Flamingo. It is the best pizza in the area. Or try Forketta just down the block on the corner - also good.

I'm pretty sure it's US cash or Colones only. I don't believe Credit cards are accepted. I can tell you the food is exceptional there and there's plenty of it!
