Excellent service & good food. Was recommended by our hotel & was no disappointment. The "entraña" steak ( churrasco/skirt steak ) served with mushroom risotto was excellent & the Grilled Salmon very good! Nicely located.

Tourist trap!!! They will charge you extra if they think you're drunk- so fake it! Great environment, but it sucks that they are not responsible enough to review before they charge

My girlfriend and I like to visit this place between Mon-Friday because they have 3 different menu options (everyday) (all week) for a great price ( $12-18). Not only you enjoy a different dish every time you visit but the special includes: - Entry - Drink (Sangria, Wine or Fruit Juice) - Italian bread (if you ask) - Main Course... More

Despite a slow start the service made this experience with interest and good advice.excellent food with meat in particular being good the wine list is excellent but best enjoyed with friends as the carafe selection is slightly pedestrian. If you can see past the car park setting it's a great place.

Was a table for 5, all but one main plate were served ok, however it took almost 1 hrs for a Risotto, the excuse was that the plate was broken. As with such delay I would expect a big discount or something but was not the case.

Great selection of wines, nice atmosphere & the food was delicious. The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. I ordered the caprina salad (really yummy) and rose sangria (ok) , my colleages ordered the salmon on parmentier and the beef tenderloin medallions with veggies.

Went there for dinner. The place is very nice, clean, classy and well decorated. Have a very armonized atmosphere. The customer service is just perfect, they are friendly, professional and quick. They had a mistake with the terms of cooking the steak..so it took 3 times to get the right point, so it was kind of annoying and at the... More

I have been to Tintos y Blancos many times as I travel to Costa Rica at least 3 times a year. I am writing this review to bring attention to two separate incidents that... More

This place is awesome 1. Service is great. 2. Food is delicious ( during the week from 3 to 7 pm they have a nice tapa and glass of wine) 3. Despite being in the shopping mall, it's a bit isolated from the hustle and bustle so you don't need a reservation and there are no issues with the parking... More

Excellent Italian menu, extensive wine selection, superbly crafted food. This gem is tucked away on the side of the Multiplaza mall in Escazu. Highly recommended!
