Delicious, authentic pizza!

We went here on our last night of vacation. We were feeling a little homesick so we wanted some comfort food. The pizza is similar to what my Italian family member cooks us when he visits from Italy. It's true, the service isn't the quickest but it's worth the wait and the atmosphere is delightful... read more

We were tired of rice and beans and had seen this restaurant up the road from the Green Papaya (an excellent choice). The ambience is so nice and the pizzas were fantastic! As was the service. I highly recommend it.

If you are looking for greasy,fatty American pizza this place is not for you. The pizza here is thin crust, light, fresh and super tasty. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Try the hazelnut icecream.

Pizzas here were so good. Right out of the brickoven. We were there with a large party and they just kept them coming!

After being in Tamarindo a few days, we heard this is the only place to go for a pizza, and that was definitely true. Tried the pizza place on the strip and not nearly as good, especially for the price. La baula has a nice atmosphere, great service and the food is fantastic. We started off sharing the house salad...

We ate here on our last night in Tamarindo, on TripAdvisor recommendation. A really good choice of pizzas, well cooked and heavy on toppings, in a really nice setting semi open-air setting. There was a musician playing during our visit who added to the pleasant ambience.

We enjoyed the pizza here. As others have mentioned, the cheese is slightly different than what we're used to in the states but still good. The crust is excellent. My daughter loved her smoothy. The salad was very simple and just OK. The service was good and it was a comfortable dining environment with a good number of seats. This... More

We decided to try this restaurant after reading so many positive reviews. Unfortunately, we had a really negative experience. We had to wait for a while, which is fine, because the restaurant is really crowded. But they had no organized system and they kept taking people out of order and giving tables to the wrong people. It was a mess.... More

If you're looking for a real nice, casual kid friendly place, this is it! The restaurant was full when we visited, but still the service was really good and they brought our food and beverages in a real good timing. The coolest here is that they have this really nice outside play for the kids, which my daughters really loved,... More
