The restaurant was the setting for our daughter's rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent, possibly the best duck confit I've ever had. Service was attentive and the wine was good. Overall a great evening!

Everything was perfect — atmosphere, service, food. Better than most Italian restaurants I’ve been to in the States, let alone Costa Rica. Romantic and not cheap, but worth it. We paid around $120 for drinks, apps, mains, and dessert for two people (some sharing).

The setting was lovely and the service friendly. We had a bruschetta, 2 linguine with squid and 2 beers and paid c. USD 90. While food was good, it was also not very special considering the price.
