My son and I spent a few days at the Hotel Doubletree Cariari in San Jose. We were exploring the city and after a long day thought we would like something different for dinner other than the restaurant at the Hilton. With no car our options were limited. We walked across the street to a shopping/restaurant complex and took a... More

We were staying in San Jose for the night and found this place within walking distance of the hotel. It is located in a small center with a few other restaurants and shops (note: the Fresh Market downstairs has a great selection of very nice fresh food to choose from- no meals but high quality groceries). La Foccacia is a... More

We ate here as it was close to our hotel. We dined on the terrace. The food was delicious, in particular the foccacia bread triangle points served before dinner. They had a beautiful flavor with real sage baked in. This restaurant is across the street from many others that are included in an upscale shopping center, but I'd go back... More

We sat by the window and enjoyed raviloi and a pasta vegetable dish with bread. The price was quite reasonable and the staff was excellent. We were told that the food was so good because some of the ingredients are purchased from Italy.

This place is one of several eateries on the Plaza Cariari and it primarily caters to the residents of hotels nearby (for whom there is really nowhere else to go). It is interesting combination of Italian café and sushi bar (you can order from either menu). We were there for lunch and I chose steak and seafood skewers which came... More

A short walk from the DoubleTree is a nice open air food court that includes this restaurant. Pasta dishes were all enjoyed but the pizza was the big hit. Reasonable prices and great service.

I've been to both locations and the food and service are always quite good. Fare is simple Italian, with very good local fish options, great thin crust pizza and a separate sushi bar. No problem ordering sushi with your main dish. Good bet.

We have eaten here several times- latest in May 2013. The food and service are excellent. Pizzas and Pastas are well-prepared and flavorful! Nice outdoor atmosphere as well!

We were staying at the Indigo so we walked over and tried La Focaccia for dinner. We all had either fish or sushi and we very much enjoyed the food. On our return from our diving trip we went there again and had Italian food for dinner. It too was quite good and we were very surprised at the quality... More
