We were with large group and team seemed seemed friendly. However, service was poor. Quality of food / pizza / pasta mostly average.

Quick lunch before leaving Monteverde . Personal size pizza was 4 slices and plenty for two people when adding salad. Delicious very fresh toppings. Restaurant is very nice and elegant ( not expected considering surrounding area.) Would highly recommend. Jeff & Cathy Canton GA
