We enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere, friendly waiters and delicious pizza. There was a free minibus at 7.30pm from the Holiday InnExpress, and return buses at 8.30 and 9.30 (only 8 minutes' journey). Otherwise, a taxi is easy.

Good selection of pizzas. Very thin crust, which I like. Fresh basil, garlic, etc. for toppings. A bit pricey and the beers are definitely too expensive. $5 for a Heinekin or Bavaria in Costa Rica is outrageous. In the future, I will do take out and cut the bill in half by drinking at home. Must have been why the... More

Like all of the La Fabbrica Pizzerias that I have visited, the pizzas are excellent.. With the thin crusts and not an overabundance of sauces, they definitely are not from Dominos or Papa Johns.. Quite enjoyable, but compared to US pricing, quite expensive as Pizzas generally are in Costa Rica.

La Fabbrica is great place for pizza. My family and I had spent a wonderful couple of weeks in Costa Rica...and we were on our way home. We stayed a night at the Hampton Inn near the airport in San Jose, CR, in anticipation of our early morning flight. There were a couple of okay restaurants within walking distance of... More
