Fodor's Review

The name translates to "my way," and the exuberant Italian owners really do it their way, combining the cuisine of their native northern Italy with Caribbean flavors. Your antipasto might be classic bruschetta or jamón de tiburón (shark ham with avocado dressing), and your ravioli might be stuffed with tropical shrimp, pineapple, and curry, with avocado sauce on the side. The tropical veranda with gingerbread trim spills over onto the beach with abundant greenery,

and the restaurant is a popular gathering place for Puerto Viejo's Italian community.

Good Food

Food was pretty good. We had carpaccio which was great. Fish entree and beef entree that were above average. The best part is the owner was so kind to drive us back to our hotel in a pouring rain storm.
