Had the mozzarella/tomatoes appetizer and the ravioli...was just fine. Service was excellent. Not cheap but worth it.

I was staying right down the street so one night when I didn't want to go far, I stopped in here despite it being down from the main area and having an unassuming look. When I looked around all of the dishes looked fabolous but...I ended up ordering a classic margarita pizza, with a price of $12 USD, I assumed it would be a personal pizza but it was a very hefty size...6 good sized pieces! This was hands down the best brick oven old school Italian pizza I've had. You also get a free appetizer of two small pieces of bruschetta, one classic and one topped with delicious pesto. I actually ended up here twice in my five nights and I'm craving the pizza again aleady! I really wanted the lasagna on night two but the pizza won my heart. Oh the frozen lemonade was amazing too!More

The food was excellent and service was amazing. We had the spinach ravioli (our server’s recommendation and favorite), gnocchi (delicious) and pizzas. The caprese salad to start was perfect. We brought our own wine. Go here. You won’t be disappointed. We will be back!

Very nice place. Enea is a very good host. I ordered a Caprese that was very fresh and delicious. The pasta was a perfect combination of flavors and seasonings.

The environment/ambiance would receive a 2 from me. Compared to other restaurants this one lacks a little bit of character. The service was fine. Half of our food was really good and the other half was pretty bland. The pizza was good.

Lovely little spot for handmade pastas and pizza. Covid safety measures were well executed with tables spaced apart and all staff wearing masks. We enjoyed a lovely cold bottle of pinot grigio to go with our pasta dishes. Spaghetti with Shrimp, garlic and parm was...delicious as was the spaghetti bolognese. It was a relaxed meal, we did not feel rushed and service was attentive.More

My friend and I ate here twice during our 3 weeks in Tamarindo. We had the margerita pizza with pepperoni and the rocket (arugula) salad pizza with prosciutto. Both were very good. Additionally, Rosemary, our server was very attentive and went out of her way...for us. I would definitely make a stop into Eneas while you are Tamarindo. When I come back, I'm going to try the homemade lasagna!More

I love the ambiance and food in this cute little restaurant. I ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli which tasted phenomenal. Rose Mary took really good care of me and was so nice to talk to. I recommend Enea’s 10/10 if you’re looking for fantastic...Italian food in this quaint Costa Rican town. Pura Vida!More
