I visited Jaco recently with some friends for vacation, and coming from NY i never expected to be so impressed with a NY style slice all the way in Costa Rica! The sauce is on point, the crust is made in the traditional NY thin crust style, and they nailed the crispy-on-the-outside-doughy-on-the-inside crunch that I love. Phenomenal pizza aside, the...

Husband and I had spent a full day at Arenal volcano and arrived late at our hotel. The Pizza Shop was one of the few restaurants open late. What a pleasant surprise...we loved our pizza that we ate "carry out" at our hotel. The young man that worked the counter was very nice.

Pleasing New Yorkers is about as easy as herding cats. It is very pleasing to hear when we hear that true New Yorkers dig our pies. We take a lot of pride in our product, and hearing such nice words is a real nice pat on the back. Thank you for taking your time and reviewing the shop. Hope to... More

Per your review we are "good for a quick bite, but not the fastest service." Since you made yourself sound pretty silly we're putting your vote of second best pizza in the same category. Haven't seen the weather in Boston recently, but the surf report for here today says the water is 82 degrees! -The Pizza Shop More

We've had several pizzas here and they are always incredible. Tons of toppings, made fresh, served hot. A great place to stop if you're walking the streets of Jaco. Plus the servers were so nice, attentive, and helpful. Definitely going back soon.
