This restaurant has all the components of a great restaurant: quiet location, historic building, interesting menu and attentive staff. However, it is only average in every aspect. Everything: decor, food, attention, service could be better.

located a bit out of the city center, this is a quiet place. there is no Italien in the kitchen or among the waiters, and neither is the owner. but the food is Italian at its best. we enjoyed the pulpo (in two different versions), washing it down with half a bottle of red wine (Spanish so, not Italian).

Wow. What an experience! Gorgeous attentive wait staff, move chairs, pour drinks and ensure everything is perfect. The food was well priced considering the tourist towns we had visited in Costa Rica. This place is five star service and high quality food. The finale was Costa Rican Chocolate volcano cake lit up with wild berries and so perfect. Treat yourself!

Great little Italian restaurant. Should be famous for their octopus dishes! Looks upscale but prices are ultra cheap for the quality and service you receive. I will go there often!

Lots of charm ,located in a romantic old house. Convenient to central San Jose. Not the cheapest restaurant but a good value
