We were recommended this restaurant by locals. We were visiting Costa Rica from California. Being from the Northern California wine country we are used to amazing Italian restaurants. This one is right up there with the best! We ordered pizza and fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, bruschetta, and delicious Iced tea. The location is excellent, right across the street from the Doubletree by Hilton Cariari. It is a little pricey just to warn you, but worth it.

The house wine was not the best but the fresh pasta dishes were excellent! Good portions and hospitable wait staff.

I eat here 2-3 times per month. And I have read the reviews. To those who say the service is slow, you ate at a different restaurant. Although it's Costa Rican Tico timing, the service is as rapid or as relaxed as you desire. As for wine, House wine is served by the glass , but the higher end selections are bottles only. The night we were there, the place was packed. 40-50 people and all tables being used. The service was excellent. Sure, you can have different opinions on the food, but Italian comes in many tastes. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyable atmosphere- my fettuccine alfredo was not as flavorful as I like, but it wasn't bad. Other people in my group enjoyed their dishes- pizza, calzone, and more pasta. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the patio listening to the live music. It was hard to get the attention of our waitress- and at the end when we were clearly done we couldn't find her- until someone saw her inside making desserts. Even after we let her know we wanted to leave, it still took her awhile to get to us- maybe staff more people for busy nights?
