My husband and I love Costa Rican food (heavily rice and beans) but wanted something different that day. We walked over to Antica Roma, which is near the University.it is a pleasant, clean restaurant. The service was good, and the pizza was tasty. We did not try their Italan dishes. Nothing exceptional and a little pricey but a nice change.

Sat on the patio in the rain, enjoyed the ambience immensely. Thinnest crust pizza ever. The 3 mushroom pasta is fantastic. Place was packed, service a little slow, but well worth the wait.

In my opinion the best Italian restaurant in Heredia. Reasonable prices and a long list of pizza's as well as pastas. This place isn't for nothing always busy.

Me encanta ir a este lugar, es delicioso! La atencion es buena, pero puede ser un poco lenta. Yo no he ido a cenar, solo a almorzar asi que nunca he tenido que esperar por una mesa. De todos los platillos que he provado ninguno me ha decepcionado, la pizza y la pasta son maravillosos. La ubicacion es super centrica... More

Good food, nice atmosphere to eat with the family. Pasta had a good taste as well, personally can recommend L'Antica flavor to eat. It's a place you should come if you're celebrating a special occasion.

We visited this restaurant on a Wednesday night, the place was packed, and the service was terrible, so if you see a lot of people you might just turn around and go somewhere else, the foos is pretty good tho, so if you are not too hungry and have 45 min to spare, it might worth the waiting time.

The restaurant is nice and the weiters are nice and friendly, but the food is mediocre. I am italian and i know i cannot pretend much by an italian restaurant in Costa Rica, the pizza was not bad, the menu offers a great variety of choices. The entrances were not great.

Pizza is very good at this place, I would recommend the Varsovia pizza, also the mushrooms are very nice. This a good place to come with friends, family or just for a casual meal.

My hubby and I like this reataurant a lot, we´ve been here a number of times and never been dissatisfied with our food, I recommend stuffed mushrooms, and 4cheese gnocci, and they mantain the quality of service even when is packed.

I stayed at Hotel Valladolid, which is directly across the street from L'Antica Roma. I came over several nights and had tortellini, spaghetti, pizza and calzone. The pasta was home made and the pizza and calzone crust were hot, flaky and melt in your mouth. The dishes did not take long to prepare, probably because of the extremely hot wood... More
