the worst experience ever. my boyfriend and I decided to try the new restaurant. service was good, the waiter was polite and knew his menu, he offered us the daily special and we took it.
it was pasta. when it arrived and we set out to eat I stir my pasta and there it was, cooked within the pasta, a dead cockroach. it as completely disgusting. I regret not taking a picture, the waiter called the "manager" and she just arrived to the table like if the issue was not important, and decided she was still going to charge for the meals!!!!!!!!!!!! i wouldn't have paid a penny, but my boyfriend was polite enough to do so, knowing we will NEVER come back.
I just think the situation should've been managed differently. even if it shouldn't, those things happen, but the so called manager should've tried to a large extent, to solve the situation differently. that was immature and very unprofessional of her.
more because of her attitude than for the incident they have lost at least 10 clients, all my piers at work were informed.

We were staying at the Tryp Sabana a few blocks away and stumbled onto this cute little Italian restaurant. We LOVED everything about it. The decor was warm and inviting and very clean. The food was amazing! The pasta and the risotto and the pizza all were out of this world and the prices were great too. We actually came back and ate here 4 times and recommended it to everyone staying at our hotel. They all came and loved it too! We were sad to leave this place and Carlos our waiter was wonderful. He explained everything on the menu and took great care of us! We definitely missed him and the wonderful food when we left the San Jose! Stop by and you won't be disappointed!!!

Spent a couple of days in San Jose and found this nice Italian restaurant near our hotel. A group of five of us had a couple of salads, a pizza, calzone, and some pasta. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the restaurant seemed exceptionally clean. The guy running the place spoke good English even though the menu was in Spanish which made ordering easier.
