This is one of the best dinners we had while staying in Nosara. The owner is wonderfully animated and the food is amazing.

“Order seafood every time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

I should have known better, after seeing herds of skinny cattle throughout the land, not to order steak as my beef dish was not so great. The seafood, however, was delicious and there was plenty of it!!

My advice: make reservations and don't sit by the kitchen. The smoke in the restaurant from the kitchen was a bit intense.

“Italy in Nosara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

Best 'night out' restaurant in the area. Beautiful atmosphere, food and service. Great pizza, italian dishes and the lemoncello served complimentary after dinner makes it a must go!
