The restaurant is a bit hard to find, but worth every step of your walk. We had gone here four years ago when we were last in Tamarindo, and we wanted to come back. It was as good as we had remembered. The owners are Italian, and the food is authentic and yummy. It's really just pizza and dessert, nothing... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at La Baula. Run by a true Italian family it is not your typical Costa Rican food, not that that is bad. However when on an extended trip it is nice to have a variety of good options as to where to eat. Great thin crust pizza and good salad too. Good service from our Italian... More

This place is a wonderful, romantic date location! The pizza is acceptable, nothing to write home about, and not very filling. There are few other options on the menu outside of pizza. However, worth it for a date night!

Nice place and absence, also the food was good quality, however $17 US Dollars for a pizza is a little high. I don't think a pizza is that expensive to make is it?

So, we went for the Pizza but the ice cream was the highlight for me - haven't had it this good since Italy! So rich, creamy and decadent. We went back another night just for the ice cream. The pizza itself was super good, the crust was very thin and cracker crispy. The place is pretty, outside with fans blowing.... More

A little bit out of the way, but turned out to be a very nice walk. Hard to find, so easiest to ask. Very good pizza, as many different combinations as you can think of. Great waiters and waitresses.
