I've been a client of Buon Apetito during five summers in a row. Me and my family go there every night during our holidays to have ice cream, coffee or pasta and to talk with Massimo, the owner. This is real Italian, Massimo spends hours cooking the bolognesa sauce, and is one of the bests I've ever tried. Feel free... More

We stayed at a hotel close by and only discovered this little hangout on our second last day! Great ice coffee but even more amazing omelettes! The owner is extremely friendly and helpful and gives off an amazing vibe! Would recommend this place to others! (Steps away from the beach!)

Owned by a woman originally friends Sicily, she makes great pizza. We came here twice during our trip. We had the Speck piZza but the best one was the Hawaiian pizza with fresh pineapple.

Had the Parma pizza last night for a casual eat at home dinner. The pizzas are a medium size, the Parma had prosciutto, olives, mushrooms, cheese and tomato sauce. The crust is a nice thin crisp crust just the way I like it. Gelato is great, black cherry has become a favorite. So if in the area definitely give it... More

I love coming here when we visit Tamarindo. They make amazing deli style sandwiches with fresh baked bread using quality ingredients. The owner is so nice!

affordable and good food. Right on main street, the owner works there and make's sure you're happy. He dose'nt even exagerate on the price of a good wine glass.

Had a mediocre sandwich, good coffee, but the owner seems to be a horrible person who gossips about her customers in Italian.
