“Italian doesn't get any better than this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I stayed 2 nights at Arenal Volcano Inn, the hotel where you will find this restaurant, so I had the pleasure of dining here several times. The cuisine is Italian and the food is superb. You may find Italian as good, but not better. Also, the service is excellent and speedy, and it is not expensive. Well done Que Rico!

“Great choice, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant was near the hotel we were staying in, so we were able to walk to it. As we are both vegetarians, we were able to find a lot on the menu, and the food was very good. So much so, we ate here a couple of times, and both times the service was very friendly and quick.

“Great Food and Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

My husband and I went to dinner here one night during our honeymoon. We both ordered the chicken alfredo dish and found it to be delicious! The service was also fast and the servers were very polite and eager to help. The atmosphere of the place was also very quiet and romantic. We loved it!

“Great dinner in La Fortuna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We had a wonderful experience here. The staff were very fun and friendly and made the whole evening a pleasure. Food selection was varied and we really enjoyed all of our meals from steaks to pasta to seafood. LOVED the special dessert that was pizza crust with almonds and nutella baked in the pizza oven. Yum!!

“Que Rico - how pretty it is!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Beautiful views of the volcano on a clear day made this one of the most memorable meals in Costa Rica. We stopped for lunch before our hike to the volcano, and the Costa Rican fare deliciously filled us up. Portions were generous and service was fine. The meat was of great quality, and the fresh vegetables and rice completed the meal.
