Located in the Los Suenos Resort Marina Village, the Lanterna Ristorante Italiano’s split design features a beautiful dining room on the first floor and a second-floor cocktail lounge called the Terrace Lounge. The lounge showcases immaculate sunset views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean and the charter boats docked in Los Suenos Marina. Executive Chef Darrell Thomas has created gourmet, authentic Italian dishes with a delicate and traditional flare.
Voted the best Italian Restaurant in Costa Rica by its diners, this Los Suenos Restaurant has been featured in Travel & Leisure Magazine. We recommend the Lasagna – a hearty house specialty that is sure to please. Also recommended are Carpaccio di Manzo, the handmade Fettuccine, the gourmet pizzas and an ever-changing selection of fresh seafood pasta dishes utilizing the catch of the day.
Lanterna Ristorante Italiano also boasts a fine selection of Red and White Wines and delicious tropical cocktails!
Costa Ricans are not strangers to the generous tippers from the United States, and in fact many depend upon it. Service industry workers such as drivers and guides are accustomed to receiving what their equals might receive in the US.
However, one notable exception is the Costa Rican restaurant. It in not uncommon to be automatically charged 10% for service and 13% for taxes at many restaurants in Costa Rica. Though some unknowingly tip 15% - 20% on top of this inflated amount, adding 10% for excellent service can be seen as both a gesture of generosity and understanding.
