It´s a very good italian restaurant, really romantic, cosy, with a great service. The food was excellent as well as the choice in the menu. Great place for a romantic dinner.

I had business in San Jose and dined here on Valentine's Day, solo. It was clear upon entering that the restaurant used to be a large house and the tables are set up in the various rooms in the house. No attempt seems to have been made to knock down walls to create larger spaces. I was seated at the top of the stairs in a hallway / foyer area, making for an odd feeling, as the table was by itself next to waiters zooming by as they entered all the smaller rooms, some with single tables, some lit with fluorescent light.

Anyway, overlooking this, the food and service were outstanding. I had a pear and nut salad and a gorgonzola tartlet for a main. Original flavours, though a bit heavy handed with the sugar on the tart. Very nicely presented. Service was superb, attentive and kind.

Recommend, but the "feeling" of the meal is highly dependent on where you sit - try for a downstairs table in the main room.

This Italian restaurant is a little off the beaten track in San Jose, but was within easy walking distance of our hotel in the Barrio Aranjuez area. It has great atmosphere, and an extensive menu. The antipasto the two of us shared was a wonderful mix, and was enough for 6 people, so by the time I had made my way through the main course, there was no way whatever that I could manage the dessert to which I was so looking forward!

I had a salad and pasta dish. The ingredients all seemed so fresh and flavorful. Just delicious and satisfying. The restaurant is nicely furnished and the service very good as well.
