Pizza was very good!

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!

Homemade pasta with shrimp "a la caveja" was excellent. My husband had pizza with bacon, pepperoni and mushroom which he really enjoyed. Our friends had pizza with arugula but found it to be a bit dry. They asked for a tomato sauce to go with it. The tiramisu was delicious; light and creamy. Our waitress could have been a little...

We ate at this little Italian restaurant the first night of our vacation and it was definitely a great start. The pizza was really good and the bread was amazing. We got there when it opened and it was a good thing we did. When we left, almost every table was filled. Recommend going early.

Fantastic, delicious thin crusted pizza can be found in Costa Rica. This place is just outside of Coco on the way to Ocotal Beach. It is sooooo good! A little on the expensive side, just as all the food is in Costa Rica. There is only one female staff who can communicate a bit in english. They also serve the... More
