off the beaten track a bit but some of the best pizza I have ever had. The restaurant is very nice and staff friendly. For those with children they can play on the slides best side the restaurant until dinner is served, but get there early as it fills up.

Stop right there. You're judging. Yes you're in Costa Rica, yes pizza sounds absurd, and yes you're completely wrong about this place. It is some of the most delicious pizza I've had and I've lived in NYC and Italy for many years. But just when we thought a friendly staff and great food was enough we started to hear music.... More

There are a lot of places to buy and eat pizza in Tamarindo but this is one of the best both for the quality of the food and the ambience of the restaurant. The pizzas were just how I like them, thin and crispy with a great selection of toppings to choose from. The restaurant is fitted out beautifully with... More

This is one of our favorite - low key, good food, good service, low cost. We always make it a point to stop in at least once for dinner.

The place is packed and you can see why the pizza is as good as pizza in Florence Italy! Even when it is busy, somehow they manage to get the pizza out to you fast. We went at 8pm and were afraid we would have to wait a long time to get our food but we had our pizzas in... More

This is a town favorite and we never miss it on a trip to Tamarindo. It's a little bit off the main road, but everyone knows where it is. Great open air space, too.

We wanted some pizza to go since we had an early morning flight and had to pack. The owner Richard of Hotel Arco Iris suggested this spot and we are glad he did! The people there were awesome as we waited for our pizza at the bar and the pizza was awesome too! :) There is a lot of pizza... More

This was our 3rd year in a row that we had dinner at La Baula. As always, great food, service and atmosphere! If you have small children, this restaurant is a must. They will love playing on the swings and slide while waiting for dinner. All of the pizzas are delicious. They are thin crust too. Great salads and wine... More

The pizza was amazing by any standards, not just because one might be craving pizza far from home. The sauce, the ingredients, and the thin crust so perfect. I wish I could find pizza this good back home.

Great service, great food, great ambiance & location. Wife & I got a few entrees and the kids got pizza. Their pizza is the best we've had in Tamarindo so far. We'll be back.
