This is the BEST, fire-roasted, thin-crust pizza in town! My boyfriend have tried several different varieties, but our favourite is with Gorgonzola pizza with mushrooms. Mmm! Get there early as this place is busy every night. Ambiance is beautiful! Chocolate Gelato is to die for!

Ordered two drinks and they were perfect, strong and cold. Service was good and restaurant is beautiful. I'd love to see them expand the menu and offer other choices beyond pizza. Pizza was a little undercooked and good for Tamarindo but let's not kid ourselves, Tamarindo is not a good location to set the bar on quality pizza.

Recommended by some friends that live in Tamarindo. Delicious!!! Here you will find 3 things: Salad Desert & Pizza!! They keep it simple at La Baula. The Pizza is one size and anyone could eat all of it in a sitting if they are hungry. Salad was fresh and Mojitos as well. Flamenco style guitarist played for at least an... More

I like thin crust pizza so I really enjoyed this. I also enjoyed the drinks. The salads are really good too. They are big enough to split. Get there early or you will be waiting for a while. I know there have been complaints about service and yes most places in Costa Rica lack in service as to what most... More

This restaurant is set back from the main tourist area, off of a small road. The seating is inside, but there are no walls and when seated, you look out into a garden-type area, so you feel like you are outside. The atmosphere was elegant without being overdone. The thin crust pizza was delicious. I'm a pizza snob, and rarely... More

Every time we come to Tamarindo, we eat here at least once. We usually arrive late at night and quite typically ask our property manager to have La Baula pizza waiting for us.

Well, people told us not to miss this pizza, so we went there... it is tacty, crunchy, many different add on's but in the end it's not the best we had ever. Maybe we came with too much expectations.

I'm a pizza snob from NY. I must say I was shocked how good this pizza was. Thin crust, delicious, great toppings. I got the prosciutto, arugula, and parmesan. I thought it was a risk. It paid off big-time. Girlfriend made her own and it was equally good.

We went to Pizzeria La Baula twice on the our visit. We tried 4 different pizzas and all were amazing! The parmesan cheese is fresh large slices all over the pizza- just delicious! Great smoothing, decent prices, and very friendly staff! I would recommend this place for anyone- families, couples, etc. Delicious!

Good drinks and a varied menu of pizzas. I had the arugula, parm and prosciutto pie and my wife had the Hawaiian. Both were very good and good size.
