In the mood for some Italian food while in Manuel Antonio? Head over to Gondola Restaurant. The atmosphere is very laid back and simple but the food bursts with flavor. Start with the caesar salad that comes with homemade croutons. I had the mahimahi with pesto mashed potatoes and broccoli in a lemon sauce which was incredible, one of the best fish dishes I had on the trip! The bolognese pasta was also quite delicious and the portions were a good size so we weren’t overly full and had room for dessert. Try the grilled pineapple with strawberry ice cream it is refreshing and will satisfy your sweet craving:) For a laid back evening with good food head over to Gondola.
