Staff was very nice with good service. We are a family of 5 with middle school kids. We ordered a pepperoni pizza, a personal pizza, pasta with meatballs, one side salad, a bottle of water and two glasses of house wine. The food was good. The total was just over $100USD which we felt pricey.

I was very skeptical when I pulled into the parking lot and it was completely empty. Usually that isn't a good sign, but we were tired and there so we went for it. We all ordered something different. I ordered ahi tuna for an appetizer and garlic shrimp for entree. And did I mention the garlic bread???? OMG...my mouth still... More

Enjoyed the meatballs and pasta. Good tomato sauce. Pizza also good. Took leftovers back to the villa. Eating Italian food in open-air Costa Rica can really warm you up. They have fans positioned around the restaurant and ask a few times if you are comfortable. Some people enjoyed having the fans aimed at them. Very thoughtful service.

Got their during happy hour and enjoyed a two for one drink. After placing and receiving our orders, we were pleasantly surprised from the appetizer to the main... More

We decided to go to dinner at victorias after we ordered a pizza one night and then walked by and looked at the dinner menu. The meal was excellent and the service outstanding. The ambiance was good too. Loved it

Off-key Italian food presented by a team who do not speak Italian. Caprese Salad with tasteless basil (could have been spinach) with tasteless buffalo tomatoes all drenched in a horrid brown balsamic sauce. The best dressing for this combination might sensibly have been a basil-infused olive oil to salvage the dish. The Mom's Recipe meatballs were technically plural, there were... More

We were skeptical about Italian food on our vacation, but Victoria's did not disappoint. The pizza and pastas were excellent, and our server was so patient and wonderful to my two children, ages 8 and 6. He took the time to teach them how to order in Spanish and made sure my gluten-and dairy-free husband was confident in his order.... More
