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 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.

My family was part of a large group of people visiting Costa Rica for a wedding. The people at this restaurant really went to great lengths to give us top notch service. Our table ordered 8 pizzas (thin crust) to share and everyone one of them tasted great. The restaurant was recommended by the people who ran the snorkeling excursion... More

Away from Main Street drag this place is one of best kept secrets of Playa del Coco. We dined here following insistent recommendation of friends relocated to CR few years ago. Per their unbiased opinion this restaurant makes one of the best thin crust pizzaz. If you not in the mood of a pizza they offer homemade pasta and salads... More
