I had some very good homemade Gnocchi’s for lunch but the price with tax was around 20$. That’s way to much for my opinion even they are home made. This place lives of the many reviews but I think if they would lower the prices...More

La Bruschetta is the most popular, if Remote, off-the-beaten track Restaurant in charming Pavones. Rosella, the Italian Owner charms her guests with fine cuisine in a casual outdoor environment! Fish & pasta were so tasty! Go if you’re in Pavones! You won’t be disappointed!

Surprisingly good meals with an Italian touch. Apparently, by the number of diners we always found there, the locals agree - in Pavones, this is the place.

Pavones lies around 15 km south of Playa Zancudo and on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Around 400 km south of the capital city San Jose, the best way to get to Pavones is via Golfito, from where you can catch a cab to here. The restaurant is just south of Rio Clara along the coastline.
