“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Authentic Italian food! Excellent service. My husband and myself shared two places that were delicious and my husband is Italian. It was quiet and romantic and not pricey. I would reco for sure!

“Must visit in coco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

I was a little skeptical going to an Italian restaurant down here, but was pleasantly surprised. Like the reviews say below, this place has so much charm. It is a little difficult to find, but well worth the search. We got an appetizer, meals and desserts and all were top notch. Definitely recommend.

“Distinctly average!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

This place is by no means what it seems to be. Amazing setting bad location good service but very average food.

There is nothing wrong with this place and the setting is very nice. But it's just really. Average food. Nothing else to say really.

“Great Italian Food in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Who would have thought that you would find one of the best Italian restaurants on a trip to Costa Rica? We were certainly shocked, but pleased with this find recommended to us by our hotel proprietor (Rick at Rancho Armadillo). The restaurant has a wonderful personal feel with only about 8-10 tables and food/service provided by a husband/wife team of real Italian immigrants. Her food is wonderful and his service was top notch.
