We are tour guides for US basketball teams visiting Costa Rica. It is difficult to get meals at one time for a whole team. El Cavallino's amazing chef made us a special menu so we could pre-order. We needed food at some odd hours and...More

Really nice place to have lunch, dinner or just a couple of drinks in a really cool environment. The food is great and the attention to details during our dinner was awesome. Great appetizers and marvelous steak, italian food and good wine selection.

Selected this place based on the wood fired stove pizza... and the pizza was sooo worth it!!! We also tried the red wine and both loved the Montepulciano.

This review is based on multiple visits. I like that I can walk here from the Marriott next door. The building is new and fresh. Parking is a problem if you have a car. Very little parking exists to support so many businesses in this...More

Outstanding Italian right next to the San Jose Marriott. It's about a 10 minute walk. We liked it so much that we went a second time, when we had a few hours between flights at the airport (it's a 10 minute cab ride). All the...More
