While the food at Tramonti was suitably authentic, it is very popular with large group bookings which the staff struggled to cope with. As a couple not part of a group, we were very much on the periphery for the few front of house staff. We were given the wine list but no one came subsequently to take our order.... More

Prior to our departure to Monteverde, a friend of mine showed me a local newspaper column designating the best restaurants there. Tramonti, an Italian place, was among the top 5. If you can find it at night, they you have had to use your GPS! We were given a tip on locating it - take the left after the soccer... More

The pizza was great. They make their own pesto and the cheese they used was very very fresh. We had a pizza and a salad for starters and paid around ~$18.

Our group of 9 people dined at Tramonti after a busy day of canopy walks and local hikes. Everyone enjoyed the dish they order - the food was served hot and everyone said what they ordered was delicious. My spaghetti Bolognese was excellent with the noodles cooked perfectly. We arrived a bit late (8:00 pm), but received attentive and quick... More

So glad we made it to this restaurant and we got there early enough to get a table (Friday night and after we arrived several buses filled the place up) The food is exceptionally good, the dessert menu has many options, between us we had 4 and they were all really good. Starters and pizza and pasta we had were... More

We have eaten here several times simply because we don't have a car and it's within walking distance from our hotel. The pizza is wood fired but the crust is super thin and it comes out tasting like a saltine cracker. Bus tours really like the place but make for over crowding and you will wait. Try the pasta, not... More

We dined here two evenings while staying in the area. We had pizza and pasta dishes, as well as different salads and the minestrone soup. Everything we had was quite good, with a lot of complimentary flavors. The pizza is fantastic, with a light thin crust. The restaurant itself is quite lovely and the service was attentive and fast.

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Monte Verde and for sure one of the best is Coata Rica. If you come, you have to try their pesto, just ask for it as a side plate. All the pasta dishes we took were excellent.

A great location, close to the outstanding Monteverde cloud forest, and the Italian food was a nice change to the ubiquitous Costa Rican gallo pinto, rice and black beans. And decent Italian food it was too. Fresh calamares to share, and satisfying pizzas, cooked in the wood fired oven. I had tuna & red onion, which hit the spot and... More
