Fodor's Expert Review Angelina’s
Guanacaste-inspired and locally sourced, the cuisine here pays tribute to the owner's Italian roots. This restaurant is one of the area’s more upscale places to dine, with marble tables, parchment lamps, and driftwood-integrated decor under an open-air patio. Homemade pizzas, like the thin-crust Playa Blanca with wild mushrooms and truffle-scented béchamel, are the draw for most diners. Fresh-from-the-sea dishes include mahimahi with mango salsa or lobster tail served with homemade black pasta. There are vegan and gluten-free options, and $4 cocktails from 4 to 6. The wine list is extensive and microbrews are on tap. It’s worth saving room for the flourless chocolate cake with coffee reduction and homemade ice cream.
