The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The chef/owner was wonderful helping us plan the party from a far. The food was spectacular with delicious home made flavors. Even their parking staff seemed to go above and beyond, standing in the rain to escort our guests to their cars. I cannot recommend them more highly. Everything was perfect!

Not sure how this place got here but it is great. We were staying at la Riviera and wanted to eat something outside the hotel. We were able to easily find the little place right next to a great florist. We parked on street with no problems and no fear . Walked to the trattoria and enjoyed our dinner

The waitress spoke no English but with my google translator and little bit of Spanish we were able to order. We used Google to look up the words we did not know ...

Italian beers and wine. We ordered garlic bread ,classic Caesar and shared between 4 ( perfect). Entrees we ordered pesto , gnocchi with pesto , meat lasagna and chicken alfredo . All was excellent .

Setting was quaint. The street was busy and loud but seemed to fit . The back was over the train tracks so the train went passing through as we ate. We all thought it was awesome

Price for 4 : 5 beers , 4 entrees , 1 salad , 1 appetizer. 49US dollars. Credit accepted

For the people of Belén (province of Heredia, Costa Rica) this location has held numerous business: from meat shop to restaurant, through the years, you can name it and it might be in the list.

The latest addition to that list, however, is rather special: an authentic trattoria with a particular style and accessible prices. A hard to find combo, unless you are actually in Italy.

The owner and chef has experienced the rush of New York cuisine (for several years!) and has capitalized into that to give us a calm and inviting place where we can simply unwind after a hard day. And this is very curious: the front of the place is on the main road (lots of cars, motorcycles and trucks going by) and the back has a train line coming through: it should be unbearably noisy, but it is not at all. Once you are in, you are somehow disconnected from all of this. It is simply great.

Now, the food: no sense in beating around the bush on this one, the food is authentic and great. Good portions, great flavors and flawless presentation. I know places that will charge double for half the quality you get here.

The menu has many options and the beverage side of things is just as good. Some of the wine selections are very hard to find anywhere else.

We have become regulars here and it never fails to satisfy. I wholeheartedly recommend this place and you should try it! Do not be discouraged about parking: just park beside the road in front of the place or a little down the road. It is a fine neighborhood and you are unlikely to find any issues.

You'll probably enjoy one of the best Italian meals in Heredia this place. The chef and his wife will make you feel at home, they will recommend or adjust the dishes based on what you want to eat or special dietary needs. The pizza is great. The homemade pasta is amazing and if you ask for the day's special you surely will receive a good surprise.
