“Overrated stupid place”
Review of Cafeteria Giaccomin - CLOSED

Cafeteria Giaccomin
Price range: $5 - $10
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details

Gave this place several chances.
First time had too dry vanilla cake at barrio dent location.
Second time had overrated chocolates.
3rd time had the cookies with chocolate ends. They are very nice I would say.
4th time came for a brunch and they just ruined it. Too dry and tough bread. I could use a cutter (I ordered sud sandwich). Cesar salad has the driest chicken.
Not going again.

Probably one of the best places for coffee and amazing authentic Italian pastries! The ambiance is nice and the goodies are without compare. A great place to buy your birthday cakes and Italian chocolates as well. The Giacomin family has been making delicious food in Costa Rica since the 60's, so don't miss out on this one!

If I want to relax with a good cup of coffee and dessert, this is where I go. The trees and plants surrounding the property provide a barrier from the street noise creating a peaceful ambiance. The service is courteous and efficient. They have an ample selection of desserts and lunch items.

Very comfortable escape right in the middle of San Rafael. Wide choice of delicious delicacies and good coffee including decaf. Guinea fowl running around add to the charm.

I was excited to find this beautiful place to relax, eat and enjoy the surroundings. Such a nice location. I wish the food was better. This place has the potential of being wonderful. Tried it a couple of times wishing I could find something I really liked.
