This is easily one of the better restaurants in the Coco Beach area. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The food even more so, the mozzarella was amazing, made locally, once you have tried proper mozzarella you will never buy anything in a packet again. The pizza and pasta dishes are authentic, the pasta is made fresh and you... More

I went to La Caveja, which I would not have found otherwise, after being recommended by our italian receptionist. It's a bit outside of Playas del Coco, and you might wanna take a taxi if you are feeling uncomfortable on the road leading to it, but it is more than worth the hassle. Ambience: La Caveja doesn't look like the... More

...in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Simply put, Caveja is fantastic! I must admit that we only sampled a few dishes, which were very good, but we returned often for the outstanding thin-crust pizza and the mushroom pasta. The owners hail from Bologna and they offer warm hospitality in their comfortable, patio restaurant. More than anything, it feels as if you... More

Spend any time in Playas del Coco and you'll want to enjoy something different from the local fare. This is your place. The owners are such nice people and the hostess, Olga, is just terrific. The Pizza is thin crust heaven, with fresh, flavorful toppings that will leave one very satisfied. They have a good selection of beverages and the... More

We recently visited Costa Rica for our sons wedding and La Caveja was recommended by the co-Rich Coast Diving instructor - Martin. We had a large group visit the restaurant and the food was very delicious and the service was wonderful. The pizza was very thin and had an excellent taste. After our meal the staff came out with a... More

We ate 3 meals here during our 1 week stay. We tried the No 6 Bruchetta (good), and 3 different pizzas (excellent), and a pasta dish (okay). The prices are great and with the quality of the food and good service, it is an excellent value. Run by Italians. We would go back.
