My husband and I ate here while staying at the Hotel Christina to which this restaurant is attached. The service was great and food was delicious. We both had pasta and were very satisfied.

We have been coming here for years albeit not as much since we moved so far out of town. Lovely restaurant, excellent service and darn good italian food. Not only that, their prices are very fair. I would highly recommend to anyone in San Jose to stop by. I hate writing this because they are already packed every lunch, but since I love them so much, they deserve it.

The restaurant is conveniently located on the north side of La Sabana in San Jose, and is connected to the Aparthotel Cristina. Dined there with freiends, and after a brief wait for a table on a Saturday evening, enjoyed a fine meal. Highly recommended.

Olivo restaurant in Sabana Norte (San Jose) is definitely our favorite place for dinner. We just love the food there and we make a point to stay overnight in San Jose just to have the pleasure of eating there.
The food is a little pricey but it is worth every penny.
For those who love wine, you will be in for a treat because they have this wonderful wine cellar. This being said, they also offer some very good bottles at a decent price.

You should make a reservation because the place gets filled really fast.
