Good pizza, with a good selection of toppings. The atmosphere and design is great, with plenty of options for larger groups. Definitely a place to hit up if you're in the mood for this type of food. Service was quick and friendly, and the espresso is surprisingly well made. Beware the prosciutto pizza, unless you REALLY like prosciutto (they layer... More

Authentic, Italian, thin crust pizza with the freshest ingredients! To die for... :) The service is fast and there's live music like a guitarist playing in the background makes for a nice, romantic yet family-friendly, and scrumptious dinner place. A must when in Tamarindo.

After hearing good things we expected more. Pizza was OK, nice toppings but the crust was underdone on both our pizzas. Pricey for what it was. Nice layout and quite popular. The small playground for the kids was helpful. Underwhelmed and better choice in town.

This was one of the places we preferred in Tamarindo. The pizza could be more flavourful, though. Loved the outdoor setup and the whole atmosphere.

We eat at La Baula each year, and it is consistently excellent! The extensive pizza menu has something for everyone. Sara and Luca, the owners, always have a smile for you, and they want to please! We love the open air restaurant and the people watching is great!

Pizzeria La Baula was very crowded on a Sunday night. We were able to get a table without waiting, but it was probably the last one of at least 20-30 tables. Despite the crowd, our pizza came out in ~10 minutes. We split a pizza with two different sets of toppings. Most pizzas seem to be the same just with... More

I believe this is the best pizza place in town - compared to all the others we went to. Great atmosphere as well.

La Baula makes great pizza and the service and atmosphere is nice. I have traveled to Italy not too long ago and the famous Baffetto in Rome is my reference for ultimate pizza. La Baula ranks very high. On top of that the prices are very reasonable, service is fast, and the owner takes price in her restaurant - it... More
