We live here in Tamarindo and LOVE the pizza at La Esquina! It is great to eat at the restaurant---our kids can play on the playground or in the playhouse (which they LOVE), but it is still good pizza to have delivered. The kids always get the pepperoni--best pepperoni in town--and we get the Daniel pizza--so yummy! The owners are... More

Pizza was awesome and the pasta was really good as well. We went back a couple of times. Also the "everything burger" I think it was called the La Esquina Burger is the best burger I've had in CR. YOu can't go wrong with whatever you order here! Reasonable prices as well.

I have lived here for 16 months, and what I missed most about the US was good pizza with great cheese and good toppings. We live just outside Tamarindo, and until now, we have driven all the way to Flamingo to Las Tublas for great pizza and salads. Going 10 miles for pizza in the states is nothing, but here... More

3rd time really was the charm for us finding good pizza in Tamarindo. After striking out twice we had really lowered our level of expectation for finding a good pizza place in Costa Rica. La Esquina was a pleasant surprise. It is a very nice setting. The owner was our server and she was very attentive. We highly recommend this... More

Had two pastas (vongole and fettuccini), both delicious! Great service - attentive and friendly. One of our favourite dinner spots in Tamarindo!

Great pizza!!! We are here for two months, and are now joking we have a "two pie per week minimum" habit at La Esquina. Such gracious owners, and we often bump into the pizza cook around town who greets us with a smile and a wave. The salads are always top shelf, and we've worked our way through several of... More

We walked by this place so many time thinking we would try the pizza, but we never found them open...until tonight! We had a custom pizza and it was yummy! We like thin crust, so if you don't...better try their Italian dishes. They all sounded good! Some of our local friends came in while we were there...picking up an order... More

We enjoyed the pizza, but it was a bit difficult to get a vegan pasta dish for one in our group. They're reluctant to change the menu, but in the end, the vegan dish turned out very well. Nice atmosphere, and while we were there, a couple of great guitarists showed up and added to a lovely evening.

On my prowl around the town for something to eat, I was going to skip this place because it looked too expensive. However, I browsed the menu and went in, had the past (with the chef's sauce (not his own personal sauce hopefully!!)) and it was delicious. Good value as well. The pizzas I saw other diners eating looked a... More

This is one of the friendliest places in Tamarindo. The seafood pasta we had was delicious, the prices of everything very reasonable, and the service was great. The husband and wife team that runs the place is outstanding. They have a kids area that will keep the little ones occupied and happy, which makes for an even more enjoyable evening.... More
