Fodor's Review

An ample selection of good Italian food, including 14 versions of crispy pizzas, 19 pastas, generous salads, and a lengthy Italian wine list (available by the glass, too), make this sidewalk trattoria a good spot for lunch or dinner. Tuna carpaccio is a lighter option, or try the insalata caprese with fresh basil. There's also a selection of local Tico dishes and seafood. Unlike the checkered tablecloths you'd find elsewhere, here you have glass tabletops showcasing shells, or plain wooden tables by the pool. Save room for a delicious Tico-Italian version of tiramisú or a mint-chocolate panna cotta.
