Server was very attentive, though this might have been due to a few number of patrons. However, it still took a long time to get our food. The personal pizza was big and their tomato sauce was delicious. A bit expensive for what you get.

We loved everything about Victoria's! We ate there twice because it was so good! Our first dinner, I think we hummed through the entire meal. Our waiter Juan Jose gave us a free dessert to come back because our 10 year old had fallen asleep at dinner. He was so helpful with suggestions on the menu and for our "picky... More

This place has okay Pizza that is not very filling and at a ridiculous price. If you want to pay 25 Canadian with tax for a pizza that barely feeds 2 people go for it! After paying the service fees and taxes the server was still suggesting a tip!

We arrived Manuel Antonio towards evening and didn't want to re-convoy for a trip elsewhere for dinner (six of us on vacation) The concierge recommended Victoria's and we were not disappointed. Although I can't agree with one reviewer ("best restaurant in Manuel Antonio") we are happy to recommend Victoria's to you.

Anne had cappelini and I had Mama's Meatballs. Anne's was quite good and mine was excellent - except for the two, rather large meatballs that were very dense likely due to the tough Costa Rican beef.

Eat here on last night at Tulemar resort. Food was Excellent overall. We had a family pizza which was delicious and it was huge couldn't finish all of it but it will do for breakfast! Nice atmosphere and server was fantastic with the kids. A very friendly place with great food. Doesn't look much from the outside.

It isn't a typical Italian restaurant in fact it is more an Italian- American restaurant where quantity is more important than quality when it comes to food. The pizza was completely tasteless. Probably they were targeting American tourists by providing them an average pizza that they usually get to eat in US, if that is the case they would need... More

Staff was very nice with good service. We are a family of 5 with middle school kids. We ordered a pepperoni pizza, a personal pizza, pasta with meatballs, one side salad, a bottle of water and two glasses of house wine. The food was good. The total was just over $100USD which we felt pricey.

I was very skeptical when I pulled into the parking lot and it was completely empty. Usually that isn't a good sign, but we were tired and there so we went for it. We all ordered something different. I ordered ahi tuna for an appetizer and garlic shrimp for entree. And did I mention the garlic bread???? OMG...my mouth still... More
