My gf and I ate here on 08 Jan 2014 for dinner. It was a random place we walked by and decided to check out. We grabbed a seat on the balcony next to a table of very flamboyant men. Everyone was polite and we quite enjoyed our meal. The service took a few minutes to find us but once... More

We stumbled across this place on our last night in Costa Rica - we were just in San Jose for one night before our flight and wanted somewhere not too far from our hotel. A real gem! After two weeks of tipico Costa Rican food and large american-style menus in some of the more touristy areas it was a real... More

Happened upon Da Vinci while exploring from Casa 69. Our hostess turned out to be the owner, and their Italian roots came through in the meals, dessert, and of course, the espresso! We ended going there several times, and I had to make one last trip before we left for espresso and gelato! Helpful staff, especially with our limited Spanish!

We loved it so much we went twice. Both times we had pasta dishes and both times it was delicious! Fresh and cooked perfectly. If you can fit it in, you must try the desserts! The staff are very friendly too!

The owner is Italian and speaks Spanish, French, English and Spanish (maybe other languages as well). She and her husband are Italian and her pasta is made in house. My pasta with small langoustine was divine and the best meal I have ever had in San Jose, cooked al dente with a lovely seafood sauce. So good I gladly gambled... More

Very good perfectly cooked dente pasta. They served traditional sauces that were fresh and seasoned well. A lovely house wine, We enjoyed the very nice staff, they don't add the 10% to your check so do the right thing and make sure you take care of the wait staff. Went back a few times because they were that good.
