We are a family of four and we ate at La Pecora Nera in June 2013. I love Costa Rica in the green season because nothing is crowded. There were only two other parties at the restaurant. We found the food and service to be excellent. It's pricey, but worth it.

This was one of my most memorable meals in a long time. The atmosphere was lovely - a peaceful jungle setting but with a touch of elegance. And the food was perfectly prepared. I can't wait to go back again.

This is simply the best restaurant that CR has to offer. We have had the same waitress for over six years and the service is impeccable. The chef always has an amazing special prepared as well.

A must! The ravioli with a sage Alfredo was to die for. Great service (hard to find in this town) and delicious wine!

If you are in the SE corner of Costa Rica and are looking for a special meal, this is the best restaurant we found in the Puerto Viejo area and worth a visit. It is supposed to be the best Italian restaurant in Costa Rica. It is a "foodies" kind of place with an exotic, spacious ambiance. We went early with a group of five for a birthday dinner. We were the only people there for the first half hour at 5:30 - 6 pm. We sat at an open table in a corner with a great view of the whole place. We were there with small kids and the place and staff accommodated us well. It is probably more geared towards couples and adults, however, since the food is carefully prepared and served. The owner helped serve and the other waitresses were excellent. They knew a lot about the dishes and wines. Everything we ordered and ate was excellent. Each dish had unique and delicate flavors. I recommend this for a wonderful, leisurely dinner and evening out.
