This place was recommended to us by locals and it is by far the best pizza I had in quite some time. And I had few! Simple, great value and delicious! It would be successful even in Italy. A definite must go if you are in the area.

This is our 4th year spending our winter in Costa Rica and we are so fortunate to have the best Italian restaurant right across the road from our condo complex. There is a great variety of pizzas on the menu - all with a the thin crust. We have tried different ones and never been disappointed. My Mum, who is... More

I've spent close to two years in Costa Rica at this point, and I can safely say that this place is in the top two pizza restaurants I have encountered - the other being Tierra y Fuego outside of Montezuma. Super thin crust, fresh and select ingredients. Seemed to have something for everyone, from traditional toppings to more creative ones.... More

We loved the food here, we found it quite difficult to find really good places to eat in Costa Rica but this place was really good although hard to find. We asked some local police that were parked where it was located and they escorted there. Great value for money too!

Very good thin crust pizza with lots of toppings. We had read many good reviews and since my wife likes thin crust, decided to give it a try. My preference is a thick pizza that you need a fork-lift to eat it with, but I have to admit, this was very good. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the service was very... More

A simple patio dinning experience (no frills) however the pizza was awesome! Truly a thin crust and stone cooked yummy pizza! The place is busy so arrive early or make a reservation! A mix of locals and tourists alike. Italian owned and operated. My only negative would be that the wine we ordered, obviously had been opened for a few... More

We had intended to stop in much sooner, but finally went on our last night in Coco. For under $ 30.00 we shared a home made pasta/pesto and thin crust pizza and a few beer. It is a bit off the main street of Coco, so a bit difficult for walking, but worth seeking out.

My wife and I are again visiting Playas Hermosa, and on our first night back, it was a must that we go to one of our favorite area restaurants in Playas Del Coco. My wife and I split a large Mediterranean Salad and an authentic Italian Supreme Pizza. It was delicious as usual. This is a very clean, well kept... More

Definitely the best pizza in town, and it comes out super fast. But, other than the pizza, everything else is really great too, the veal cutlet, the roasted veggies, the pastas. When the place is full they struggle a bit with the service, but this is just because it really is a family run place. Cool and relaxed place for... More
