The wood fired pizza here was comparable to any top notch pizza around the globe. Absolutely delicious! I recommend the caprese salad and tiramisu as well. Great dinner, romantic atmosphere, light music in the background, and friendly staff. Will return!

If you're in La Fortuna or nearby this is a must go. My husband and I live in Costa Rica and have been to more restaurants then we can count and no where has blown us away more than Anch'io's.

Very nice people. Pizzas were pretty good. The other food was OK too - its not Italy! but the pasta was reasonable and the salads fine enough.

We had to leave the states to find authentic pizza. Baked in a wood fired oven. The drinks were amazing. Try the limoncello. The service was wonderful. This was the best restaurant of our trip!

This Italian Resturant in Costa Rica is really good, I was really surprised to see how well they prepared their dishes. We started with a Salomon faccuchia that was light and wonderful fresh tomatoes and spinach with thinly sliced Salomon. Almost everything is prepared in their wood fire oven from Pizza to pasta

Excellent food! The pizza, calzones, and pasta are all great. This was one of the better meals we had while visiting La Fortuna, hence the 2 visits.
