Abbocato would fit in with fine dining in any city that we have visited in the world. Food, service, ambience, view; all are outstanding. We had visited two years ago and our server, the chef's wife I believe, truly recognized us and placed that visit...More

Best meal/service/setting we experienced in Costa Rica, by far. It was gourmet dining without being stuff. Beautiful setting, delicious food, great service. Very accommodating to vegan/vegetarian/gluten requests. We have spent three times as much in NYC for meals half as good. Go.
