The Pistachio Gnocchi and Milano pizza were some of the best pasta and pizza dishes we've ever had. The owner was incredibly patient and welcoming with us, taking ample time to talk about his restaurant and food. One of the best restaurant experiences in Tamarindo...and during the entirety of our trip in Costa Rica.More

It's not a fancy place but the food there is really outstanding, I came for try the carbonara pasta and definitely I have no words to describe how delicious was, also Giuseppe the owner is a kind guy, he give us a delicious siscilian cannoli....We definitely will come back, but unfortunately we knew he is closing for the low season. We high recommend this place and we can wait to eat again here.More

Overall - the food in Tamarindo isn’t exciting. The reason to go here is to watch how hard the owner Giuseppe works - as he services all the tables. He probably speaks better english than Boris Johnson - but that wouldn’t be as entertaining or...endearing as his smiling Sicilian syntax. He tries. . The house wine in decent. You could probably make better pasta at home - but you’re on vacation. So come for the show.More

The menu looks great and I will be back to try more! The suprema pizza was perfect. The crust was spot on, quality toppings and great coverage. Not only great pizza for Tamarindo but this is excellent compared to many other places I have also...been. Must try!More

This little hidden gem of a restaurant is unforgettable. I have Celiac's and they pay make everything homemade. No better & safer gluten-free good. Giuseppe the owner is amazing & makes you feel at home. His wife does all the cooking. We ended up eating...here multiple nights since the food and service were so incredible. Highly recommended:)More

Entirely unexpected culinary experience in Tamarindo. Giuseppe will treat you like a friend and guest of his family and will spoil you with authentically prepared Italian delicacies. Once we discovered this restaurant we stopped eating anywhere else in Tamarindo. Other clients were saying similar -...in fact we became friends with some of them. The only reason this place isn’t booked solid for weeks at a time is that the location is slightly off the Main Street and away from tourist traffic. Also Giuseppe likes to keep it small so he can insure a quality experience. I would return to Tamarindo simply to surf and eat at Giuseppe’s.More

Amazing service, excellent food and an owner whose commitment to providing the best experience has resulted in us coming back twice in two days! As soon as we walked in, I felt special. My family loved dinner so much that they begged to come back...the next day. What can I say? It was magical. A bit hard to find as it is next to the Lizard Lounge and behind the Skate Park. Once we came in, we were swept away by the sparkle of the owner. We started with a caprese and a salad. My picky daughter even ate salad. Then, we had carbonara, a meat lover dish and a pizza. I was blown away by the fresh, well made food, an owner who takes pride in his food and being a delight to be around, and an experience that was filled by love and wonderment. If you want a little sprinkling of magic, yummy decadence and fun, come here!More

Great customer service, very nice starter, but the pastas are very average and at a premium price. Couldn't really understand all the rave reviews as our group of 4 have had much better Italian food, and at far lower prices.

Great restaurant. The owner was serving us with great passion and was extremely friendly. We had the seafood linguine (very very good) and a gluten free pizza (the best we ever had, and we tried a lot). This place is a must in tamarindo.

Small restaurant tucked away in the corner of a building. It is unassuming, but the food was delicious and the owner was so friendly and attentive. Great gluten free options as well. It is an amazing restaurant, and you can feel the pride the owner...has in his business!More
