We came because of the TripAdvisor rating but it’s definitely not as good as rated.
The furnishing is a bit „clammy“ which makes you not feeling really comfortable.
The pasta is ok but the sauce (in my case tomato sauce) was tasteless i couldn’t feel any freshness, love or something in my dish.
The minestrone we had was the same - nothing special!
We couldn’t identify a clear vision or a concept.
We would not come back :/

If you enjoy Italian food ,this restaurant is one of the best in San Jose,Costa Rica. My spouse and I enjoyed this restaurant with a good vino served by the proprietor himself.Ann had linguini with oco boco sauce and had berengena Italianos.
I highly recommend !

We ate here with a group of 18 people. I sent a message the day before to reserve a large table, and they responded quickly by Instant Messenger, and had the table ready for us. The service was great, and the food was delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Perhaps we’re spoilt with loads of great Italian food in the uk, but we left here feeling disappointed. We were in San Jose for 1 night at the end of our holiday in Costa Rica and chose to walk to this restaurant from our hotel on the basis of the good reviews. Food was average at best. Ordered wine by the glass which was a very small glass of cheap tasting wine. Service felt quite impersonal and rushed. We were sat for several minutes when we arrived without a menu. Price was around $80 for 2 courses each and 3 small glasses of wine between us.

We visited this restaurant in January 2020. The food was delicious, some cooked table side, and the wines very nice. The menu had an authentic Italian feel and the service was good.
