Pizza is delicious as is pasta in general. Fresh ingredients and great flavor! It is a restaurant, not so much of a beach bar/restaurant. Great for families as well.

Puerto Viejo is a busy, noisy place. When you enter the Cafe, it is quiet and peaceful. The service is relaxed and friendly.

We called in advance to book at table for 13 (family and friends). We were delighted with the environment and even more with true service and food. The pasta with lobster is specially delicious. Don't miss it!!

We had read the reviews and knew that it was going to be a bit more pricy, but thought we fancied something a bit more different than rice and peas.

Small and nice place to have a nice italian plate. Ask for the tables in the terrace with better view. The pizza and pasta were really good and fresh and with really good size. The prices are a little expensive for what you are ordering.
