when you see the list of ingredients in the menu you realize you are at a truly italian restaurant. I tried the amatriciana made with rigatoni, the pasta was perfectly cooked, the sauce well made with fresh tomatoes and guanciale instead of bacon like many...other restaurants. For dessert a tiramisu so light and tasty that made every bite like the first. The service is worth to highlight, went beyond the expected to make me feel at home. Fully recommended.More

We only ate once in this place, but absolutely loved it. Pizza was amazing! Super slim, crunchy, made on fire. Service was also very good. Highly recommended!

Authentic Italian food with phenomenal detailing to the sauces and handmade pastas. Our table shared two orders of focaccia prepared in the brick oven fired up with coffee soaked wood. Salmon carpaccio and beef carpaccio. WOW. Next course 3 orders of gnocchi bolognese and Alfredo...sauces. One order of Ravioli filled with chicken and prepared with a chocolate based sauce. UNREAL. We also shared the tenderloin prepared with a delicious gravy filled with 3 different types of mushrooms. 2 outstanding bottles of wine. The chef stopped by twice and our server Mario was very knowledgeable with the menu and prompt to filling water glasses clearing plates. We took desert home tiramisu. We will be returning today to try the pizza. I will be dreaming of this meal for a long time. Thank you for making our dinner and for being such a wonderful establishment and providing a lovely meal and ambience.More

We went here on our last night in La Fortuna. This restaurant was absolutely amazing. Service was friendly and prompt. Everything was reasonably priced and worth every dollar. We ordered the gnocchi and pizza. Both were incredible. Ingredients were fresh and tasted delicious. The pizza...was the best pizza we have ever had. They use coffee wood in the oven which gave it a great taste. If we had more time in this town we would have definitely returned for another meal. Would highly recommend this restaurant.More

We had a very nice meal and enjoyed the ambiance in the restaurant. The chef making the pizza was very engaging and told us about his pizza making education and travels. We enjoyed practicing our Spanish too!

Very good menu, many choices. I really enjoyed the gnocchi with pomadoro sauce, my husband enjoyed the pasta with sea food in white wine sauce. We both thought the tiramisu was some of the best we’ve had in a very long time. Our server was...Marco, he took very good care of us. It was a great dinner in La Fortuna.More
