I just had the chance try this great restaurant in the Ciudad Quesada area. No place like that around. Price is very good. Sangria is great and the menu they offer reassured me that any option there was going to be cleanly executed by the chef....no fancy names, no tons of options. Great for pizza and pasta, yummy desserts, huge... More

Our family visited and enjoyed great salads followed by pizzas and pastas. Pizzas were good but not great; pastas excellent. There is plenty of seating, both indoors and outdoors, and service was very good. Nice option all round and recommended if you are in the vicinity.

Dear Mr. Mathew Thank you for visiting us. The mistake with your pizzas was about the cheese when we took the order, because we did not understand that you wanted the pizzas without cheese. We apologize for the mistake. Thank you very much for your review. We hope to see you soon. Best Wishes, Andrea Giuso Italianissimo More

The pizza is excellent, with a thin crust, brick oven taste roasted to perfection, for that classic and authentic Italian flavor. An acceptable red wine was available, and I really enjoyed the meal. Unpretentious, casual, family atmosphere, and a good selection was available on the menu. Anyone looking for good Italian food in this mountain city should feel very satisfied... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Costa Rica in January. This restaurant was recommended to use by the owners at the Tree House Hotels, and it did not disappoint. The owner's son was so gracious from the moment we arrived. The imported wine selection was very good, and the food was the best authentic Italian food I have ever had.... More

Not much to say but that the food is really, really good! The restaurant offers a wide variety of Italian food custom made by its Italian chefs (I give proof of it as, by mistake, I briefly entered the kitchen and saw the staff talking among themselves while seeing Italian television). I asked for extra meat on my "penne Bolognese"... More

We stopped for lunch. We shared a margarita pizza and pasta with salmon vodka sauce. The pizza came with a nice crisp crust and the basil leaves were fresh and huge. The pasta was rich and creamy and tasted very fresh. I had a glass of their house red wine, which was quite nice. We dined at one of the... More

This place does use a wood fired oven and makes a OK pizza, but nothing special. Location in a strip mall, would be nice spot with its outdoor balcony and use of wood if in a different location.
