This place definitely deserves it’s five stars. Excellent food and service from the very passionate Sicilian husband and wife team that owns this place. Listen to their recommendations. They will not steer you wrong! We had the seafood linguini and supreme pizza. The pasta and...pizza crust, prepared Sicilian style, is slightly different that what you would normally have in the central and northern regions of Italy. The taste is amazing. Fresh ingredients, amazing taste.More

Found this little gem after deciding we wanted a change from rice & beans! The food was amazing and service excellent. I had the meatballs and my husband the seafood linguine. Both dishes were divine and packed full of flavour. As in previous reviews the...host is witty, interesting attentive and passionate about the food he serves. A must if you are visiting Tamarindo!More

You know how you are supposed to chew your food completely before you swallow? Maybe not here. The food is so good that I inhale my pasta, bruschetta etc... The food gets 10 stars. I know, it’s not Costa Rican food but it is soooo...good. The cutest thing is the wife is the chef and the one man show in the front greets, seats and serves you. He’s adorable! This is my second time as I was here in oct 2018.More

The food in this place is delicious. The smoked Marlin carpaccio, the pistacchio gnocchis and the tiramisu are a must. Apart from the food quality, the service is amazing.

My husband and I went there 3 times during our 1 week stay in Tamarindo. It was recommended to us by my parents who had just been there the week before - more than once! The food is fantastic and service is incredible. We absolutely...loved it - we tried several items on the menu and all were incredible. Definitely a restaurant to visit in Tamarindo! Can't say enough good things about the quality of food and service. Fantastic experience!!More
