Thinest crust pizza you'll find

Great gourmet pizza, with fresh ingredients and ready in just 15 minutes. The thin crust is fabulous. We had the pepperoni and mushroom. There was't a crumb left when we finished.

Great service and great pizza. Make sure you are in the mood for pizza because pizza and salad are the only things on the menu - but plenty of pizza selection and personal revisions allowed. I love a thin crust and this was probably the thinnest I have had - makes a huge pizza easy to devour. They make a... More

My husband and I had the best pizza ever at La Baula It had a very thin crust, light tomato sauce with mozzarella cheese and prosciutto on top. When it came out of the stone oven a lot of fresh arugula was added on top then slivered aged asiago cheese to finish it off. We kept going back for the... More

The service was excellent. We started with a garden salad and the server advised us that it was enough for two. It fed us as well as our 5 year old. This was the thinnest crust pizza I have EVER had! Absolutely delicious. The bartender made a strong PERFECT Negroni. We had gelato for desert: coconut, hazelnut & chocolate chip.... More

If you're in the mood for pizza, this is the place to go. They have plenty of choices on the menu. The crust is super thin and they are generous with the toppings. The atmosphere in the restaurant is great; it's an open air building. Another thing I really liked about this place was the friendly and attentive service, the... More

This pizza restaurant was mentioned by C.R. Paradise Adventure Tours when I stopped in to look around. We ended up booking a sail on the Antares (see my separate review) through them and while chatting afterward, La Baula was mentioned as a place one would find very good pizza. After the sail, we stopped for pizza as it was right... More

This pizza restaurant was behind our hotel and we only discovered this on our last night. Amazing pizza! Loved the décor, the open air restaurant. We had a 3 cheese pizza and pepperoni/mushroom, with Tiramisu & gelato for dessert.

I went here for my birthday on the suggestion of some of my friends. It was amazing, one of the best meals I have had in Costa Rica. The ingredients are fresh and the pizza base is thin and crispy, just like how it should be! The evening entertainment was amazing as well and created a fantastic atmosphere. The restaurant... More
