Food on my travels in Central America has been very bland, so it was a delight to find this oasis. Extremely tasty Lasagne was served with paper thin crispy and salty foccacia. Service was excellent. Right next to the National Museum. Would recommend.

An enchanting restaurant in the very hearth of San Jose, with authentic Italian cuisine and spotless service. Everything is hand made. Try the Festa della Pasta, for a fix price you can try 5 different handmade pastas. Enjoy our brick oven long fermentation pizzas and visit our new space, La Bottega del Gusto, where you can find the best of our artisanal products and take them to your own place...
