We loved this little place and went back several times during our stay in Santa Teresa. The food we excellent and there was ample seating inside and outside. We got a glass of wine next door at Tipsy while we waited one night to bring food back to the house and it was lovely. My daughter loved the chicken parmigiana sandwich and we loved the risotto rice balls. The kicker was that they take credit cards!

Food was expensive for what it is. The food is just heated in the microwave and mine wasn’t even fully warm through. My friend got the pesto lasagna which was $9 and was only a small square. Wouldn’t go again

Hello. I am wondering how you came up to the conclusion food is warmed up in the microwave?? ALL OF OUR FOOD GOES IN THE OVEN TO GET HEATED WHICH YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE IN OUR OPEN KITCHEN SO PLEASE DO ALL THE HARD WORKING RESTAURANT OWNERS A FAVOR AND IF YOU’RE GOING TO WRITE SOMETHING , VERIFY THE FACTS FIRST . We work day and night to provide the best food and service and if you did not like the temperature of your lasagna , we could of put it back in the OVEN and heat it up more. As far as the price, we use the highest quality , imported Italian products ( cheeses, pastas etc.) which travel here to Costa Rica from Italy which makes our products authentic but not as affordable as they would be for example in Italy or the States..: Thank you for your visit and I hope the rest of your vacation is positive!!

We were staying next door and would have easily driven to get this Italian food! We had the lasagna bolognese and the truffle lasagna. Both were excellent and quite large. We tried the arancini sampler which was also good. Would definitely recommend this place. Understand that inside seating is limited but the outside area is great. Also, Tipsy wine bar is next door and they’re also amazing. The owner recommended a bottle for dinner which she promptly opened and gave us glasses to take outside and eat with our meal. Unusual and awesome!

Loved the stuffed pepper with potatoes and meatball pasta. Hubby said his chicken parm was best he ever had!
