How do you know if an Italian place is good? When you see all local Italians eating there, that's a pretty good indication. This place did not disappoint. They make everything from scratch and you can see them rolling the dough out in the kitchen. My son had the pizza and the crust was so thin and crispy that it... More

A very unassuming restaurant. It was right below where we were staying so we went for convenience and were pleasantly surprised. We devoured the pizzas in minutes! So good. Get there early and expect to wait. We had to wait almost an hour to get a spot.

We ate ate a dozen restaurants. This one by far has the best food. Service is slow but it was at all the restaurants. Cash only.

Our friend at Coco Tours Giovanna took us here and WOW! Delicious and the staff was so kind and the food was super fast coming out. When we return to Costa Rica we will return here!

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we decided to stop by. Very glad that we did. We had the Mediterranean Salad and the Toro Blanco pizza. Both were excellent. Noticed that several of the nearby tables had Italian families eating there. Would definitely recommend. Use Google Maps to find it though. The location on TripAdvisor is bogus.

Excellent Italian restaurant! Best Italian food in Central America. Owner is friendly and helpful. But, watch out for thieves in this town! Go to Hawaii instead.

Delicious. The take out box was even convenient to fit into small fridge. Prices are on par with area. Will recommend to everyone and will be... More

The best Italian food I have ever had. Pizzas are amazing, pastas are fabulous. We eat here at least 3 times a week during our many trips to CR. They easily manage my gluten allergy (pizza lover is my husband) which I appreciate. Prices are very reasonable for homemade Italian food. Service is excellent but get there early if you... More

I read tons of good reviews about this place so I was excited to try it out. We ordered a large pizza and gnocchi for take out. When I opened the box at my condo I was immediately disappointed. The pizza was flat and small- I enjoy flat crust pizza but this pizza was just "flat" and it tasted like... More
