The service here is as good as the food! Our server was also our chef. We enjoyed the food and chatting with him so much we stopped by again on our last night for to go food. He even offered to pack us to go sangria. The owner is genuinely Italian so you know you are getting the real deal.... More

The service was amazing, the food was great, the staff was great. This is probably the best place we have eaten at so far this vacation. This place is so good and Juliano the owner makes you feel so special and like his family. Great place!

My family and I went here, into the BIG city of Quesada, for a change from beans and rice. Also a recommendation from a local friend. Very good pizza. Loved the appetizers and salads. Wait staff didn't speak much english, but the manager/owner did stop by our table to say hello and introduce himself. Worth the drive into Quesada. Wish... More

I just had the chance try this great restaurant in the Ciudad Quesada area. No place like that around. Price is very good. Sangria is great and the menu they offer reassured me that any option there was going to be cleanly executed by the chef....no fancy names, no tons of options. Great for pizza and pasta, yummy desserts, huge... More

Our family visited and enjoyed great salads followed by pizzas and pastas. Pizzas were good but not great; pastas excellent. There is plenty of seating, both indoors and outdoors, and service was very good. Nice option all round and recommended if you are in the vicinity.

Dear Mr. Mathew Thank you for visiting us. The mistake with your pizzas was about the cheese when we took the order, because we did not understand that you wanted the pizzas without cheese. We apologize for the mistake. Thank you very much for your review. We hope to see you soon. Best Wishes, Andrea Giuso Italianissimo More

The pizza is excellent, with a thin crust, brick oven taste roasted to perfection, for that classic and authentic Italian flavor. An acceptable red wine was available, and I really enjoyed the meal. Unpretentious, casual, family atmosphere, and a good selection was available on the menu. Anyone looking for good Italian food in this mountain city should feel very satisfied... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Costa Rica in January. This restaurant was recommended to use by the owners at the Tree House Hotels, and it did not disappoint. The owner's son was so gracious from the moment we arrived. The imported wine selection was very good, and the food was the best authentic Italian food I have ever had.... More
