Great place to visit with friends or with family. Nice patio especially when there is a breeze, highly recommend if you are dining as a family. Great flavours and tastes for the pickiest of palettes or as a refined foodie. For us this is the perfect happy medium!

They have a great variety of pizzas and the thin crust is delicious and this Chicago family is very hard to please in the world of pizza! You may not think pizza when in CR but I would highly recommend it!

This place has really good pizza and fabulous extra hot hot sauce if you dare. I love it and take a towel with me to wipe the sweat off after eating it. Wow that's a spicy meat ball. Usually we have a great time here but we prefer to eat with music and sometimes the owner has the tv on... More

Enjoyed my pizza & will return again...Nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. I found the prices to be reasonable and not excessive. We were referred to the restaurant by a friend and it did not disappoint.

If you're in the area of Playa Ocotal or Cocos, you need to eat here. Genuine homemade Italian food and pizzas. Get the tiramisu for dessert! It was so good, we went back 2 nights in a row! Very reasonable price-wise too.

We were a party of 6 having dinner on a Saturday night, the service was excellent and the food was OK, I was a little disappointed in my Gnocchi, but the other meals were all good. Worth a try!

What a great find it turned out to be. Home made pasta dishes,stunning salads and delicious super thin pizza,s all freshly served. We ate here two nights out of our three and wish we had more time to work through the menu.Service was good although we had rather a miserable waitress the first night.Very popular and deservedly so as it...
