The salads and pizza are a welcome break from the fatastic but a bit tedious Casado of Costa Rica. We enjoyed all that we ate. The brownies are not to be missed. The staff attentive and kind.

slow service and limited menu items the food was OK, not great but filling loud kids with a local family which made the dinner awkward and unpleasant

Had a good dinner at Anch'io. The pizza was fresh and really tasty, and service was good. Nice outdoor patio.

The pizza was not the best and nor was the dessert. We ordered drinks we never received. There are many local places that have the typical food that I would recommend. The staff was nice but not attentive. Although it was a beautiful atmosphere.

We were craving more Italian food on our trip thru Costa Rica so decided on this place since it was the best rated Italian restaurant on Trip Advisor. We ordered Penne Bolognese and a Marghrita Pizza. My boyfriend walked by the kitchen as they were preparing his pasta and noticed they used a frozen, premade block of Bolognese for the... More

The food on our table was very good, we all enjoyed the different Italian dishes but the pizza captured an undisputed first place. Minutes after being served the kids had cleaned their dishes. The only spot was that they served the food on a first-out-first-on-the-table basis. That was quite annoying especially for the little ones. Also felt the price was... More

We ate here in early May 2015 and absolutely loved it. We had the ensalada mixta, which was a delicious blend of lettuce, sweet pepper, mushrooms, tomato, mozzarella, eggplant, and more... It was delicious and the tomatoes were some of the best tomatoes I've ever had, the serving was large too. We ordered the pizza especial to split and it... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here based on the good TA reviews and it did not disappoint. The pizzas were so obviously really fresh (pineapple looks so much better than on the pizza you get in the UK) and wood baked. Definitely more Italian than american which is always a good thing! The menu was Spanish but the waiters... More
