Fodor's Expert Review Victoria’s

$$$ Manuel Antonio Italian

If the sound of live music by Rafa Mora (Costa Rica’s leading classical guitarist) isn’t enough to lure your senses, then the smell of brick-oven pizza surely will be. Thin and crispy top picks include New York style with pepperoni, sausage, and ham, or pesto-chicken pizza with toasted walnuts and caramelized onions. Staying true to Italian cuisine are the homemade meatballs, advertised as “to die for, but not recommended on first dates.” The tuna chipotle and filet mignon are hearty dishes and come with a side of roasted potatoes and vegetables. There’s a children’s menu, and a touch of Southern hospitality, especially when owner Mark Dalton makes his way from table to table (he's originally from South Carolina). If the lights dim, it just means someone ordered the banana flambé, a dessert and show worth saving room for. Live music is performed Sunday through Thursday from 6 to close.
