Very good food and service. We had a pizza and it was excellent. Had good wine too as that was difficult to find in Costa Rica.

Each time I go to this restaurant I have great food, either Pastas or Pizzas are just wonderful!!! Music is nice and sold, good selection of wines, if you do not want to drink there I recommend the naturals juices or the Lemonade with Yerba Buena!!!! Atmosphere is good, and now on Saturdays nights there is live music.

We ordered a vegetarian pizza and pasta. The pizza was just exceptional, and the pasta was totally flavorful. The condiments chili oil & garlic oil were served with the food and are prepared at the restaurant. The lady serving us packed us some to go. I would totally recommend it if you like Italian food and are in the area.

Last time we visited Anch'io was in 2013, back after 4 years and still it is amazing. The quality of service food and wine are still on a very good level to enjoy a good meal. The restaurant was full again i that did not surprise me at all.

The pizza was tasty, loaded with fresh veggies (we ordered the vegetarian). A nice margarita pizza for the kids. Great smoothies. We loved the bruschetta they brought as a free appetizer. The staff was very friendly and kind. We ordered a delicious and beautifully presented dessert- warm brownie with ice-cream, that came decorated with strawberries cut in the shape of... More

The pizza is made in a wood burning oven. I ordered the vegetarian pizza with no cheese (I'm vegan) and extra sauce. The pizza was amazing with very fresh roasted Vegetables. The server gave me fresh garlic infused olive oil to put on top of my pizza. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable of vegan customers.

We went here on the recommendation of a taxi driver and weren't disappointed. Great pizza and pasta, and a very friendly staff that provided great service. Also a nice range of local microbrews were available.

We've been coming here for years and just love it. It's open walls make for a fresh dining experience, the staff are always very friendly and polite, and the thin crust pizza, we always get the Especial, is the best we know of in Costa Rica. It is on the pricier side, and we see it as worth it for... More
