Fantastic Italian Restaurant run by an Italian family! We actually ended up here by mistake but what a fantastic error! The service was excellent and the white table cloth was a nice touch. We were the 1st guests of the night, they turned the tv off and put on some Italian music, brought out some appetizers on the house and made a incredible recommendation for dinner including the Italian wine. Sadly they only open for dinner as we would have loved to have gone there for some Italian coffee and deserts! I wish we had more time here or had discovered this place at the start of our trip, as it is, we will defiantly be back for dinner before we leave!

OMG !!! Who thought you could find such a place in such a remote location ?!?!
After a week of eating rice and beans we found this restaurant in Cahuita. We decided to sit there even though the place was empty (it was the espresso machine that convinced us). Good decision !!!
Good wine ,excellent zucchini brushchetta , amazing pasta with clams and langosta , delicious choclalte and amaretto desert, and of course real cappuccino.
There were five of us, each ordered something different and all were happy with what they got and with the price we paid.

This Italian restaurant is a blessing to find on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. The pizza Margarita is delicious as well as the bruschetta.
Wonderful service, delicious food, and a relaxing environment.
Keep up the good work.
Grazie mille!

What an unexpected surprise! Right in the soul of Cahuita. The Best Italian food I have eaten outside of Italy! The owners are Just Lovely! Excellent service, in a country that does seem to know what service is! A real gem, you will not be disappointing!

~~~ This should be a five star (for the food, service) but I had to give them 4 because they had the TV on, it was a small thing, but it made a difference.
