Barrio Escalante is a zone full of restaurants, pubs, coffe shops, very nice to enjoy and to visit.

In that zone, you can find a special corner, that can bring you the taste of the Italian Cuisine.

Very nice, private, and charming place.

You can choose from many Italian dishes, but also there are mediterranean options to choose.

The lasagna is to die for, the carbonara and ravioli where also great taste!!

There is no parking lot, you normally park in the street and someone can take a look at you car (Ticos call them "Guachiman" or "Guachi"). Credit cards accepted.

This was my first meal, definitely I will come back!

Best Italian food in San Jose . Ciro the owner is from Italy and he is the Chef too. Incredible how tasty is the food. If you are in San Jose believe me it is a must.

I went with my wife to have dinner after theater. I had the chef’s recommendation (tomatoe pasta with olives and beef), my wife ordered traditional pasta pomodoro, both dishes were great. Staff is friendly and menú has lots of options for all tastes, my only two complaints are food took forever to arrive (place was not full) and they didn’t have merlot wine, I asked the waiter the reason for not to offer such popular red wine and we let me know very respectfully they just offer some other kinds.
