If you go, expect to pay too much for what you get. Waited an hour for the dinner to arrive. Food was olive garden standard at best. The nice thing is that the owner asked how dinner was and we told him average at best. He will try to do his best to make you happy.

It is rare that I respond to a review unless I feel it is needed… Everyone is entitled to write a review, where I have an issue is when I did visit your table, and ask if everything was GREAT, or OUTSTANDING, the comments my restaurant and team are trained to ask… anything short of that response is addressed and...

Our family was in Manuel Antonio last week and happened upon Victorias. Some of the best Italian food we've eaten - anywhere! So good, in fact, we went twice in one week (overall, we found the food in Manuel Antonio to be quite good but, Victoria's was exceptional). Try a pasta dish with Italian sausage (imported from New Jersey) and... More

OK. Let me start off by saying I am a pizza snob. I grew up on New Haven CT pizza (Pepe's, Sally's) which is pizza promised land. My wife and I were staying at LA Mariposa (awesome).

Not in a million years would I have thought I would go to an Italian restaurant in Costa Rica but did so based on a recommendation from a local. The food was amazing and incorporated much of the local ingredients. Kids loved it as well. Their specialty pizzas is one of the best pizzas I've ever had.

Service and food here were great. We had a couple of pizzas (they are thin crust) and the spaghetti and everyone in our group enjoyed it all.

Nice italian food. Service was great, and there was an ambiance with the guitar player. Prices ok, and no rice and beans on the menu. We had pasta, fish and a salad, nd all was good
