Service was great; friendly and super patient with our table of 4 as we slowly made our choices! The pizza had a light thin crust with tasty sauce and variety of toppings. We will definitely return next time we are in the area!

Yummy italian. We did takeout and the pastas and pizzas were super good, and they were fast, which is rare in Costa Rica!

Pizza was excellent, the beer was cold and the overall atmosphere was wonderful! We loved it so much we were there every night. A must while visiting Playas del Coco.

First time visit with friends. Most of us had pizza along with ravioli and an Alfredo. Staff was very nice and service was good. Everyone enjoyed their meals and had a good time. We will come back for sure.

We went here one evening and my husband had pizza which he enjoyed and I had their Greek salad (I was hoping they might have lasagna but it was not on the menu). Service was prompt and attentive.

40 min for a plate of spaguetti is not acceptable. also the food was not so great, yes the owners are Italian but that does not means that the food is great. if you are hungry this is not the place for you, if you have 2 hours for a meal go ahead.

We were delighted to find authentic Italian fare on the outskirts of Coco Beach! The pizzas are superb and my favorite was the Funghi. Nice casual atmosphere. Location is nothing to write home about - basically a roadside diner. However, the food is worthy of comparison to anything you will find in a mid-priced restaurant in Rome, Venice or Naples....

As many other reviewers suggested, great service, very good food and good prices. If I was to criticize I would say use a bit more cheese.

We were recommended by locals and visited several times! The pizza is out of this world and very affordable! The pasta is out fo this world. The wait staff is friendly and attentive! Very busy for dinner. They do not serve lunch. One mile off the main street in Coco, they are on the road to Ocotal.

The place was packed when we ordered our food for takeout. We ordered greek salad, caesar salad, margarita pizza, and pepperoni pizza. Everything was quite good.
