Tuesday special!

This is a great little pizza joint. The pizza was fresh, crust not too thick. Delicious. Tuesday special is a large pie for $12.

I travel to Costa Rica frequently and The Pizza Shop is a must on my list. Their daily specials are always fresh and the slices are the perfect size. You can grab the pizza to go, but I recommend hanging out at the shop to enjoy the company and watch the activities on main street. You can tell the owners... More

Saw a review about this pizza and that it was 'ok'. Not true!! It is Delish!! My husband, a South Dakota Farm Boy, who eats meat beef & pork at EVERY meal, said it is as good as the meat pizzas!

We ordered pizza for takeout well we were staying at Casa Rio Mar. We sent a buddy to go pick the pizzas up and somehow he came back without them. So about an hour later we called them back and asked if there was any way they could deliver the pizzas for us and they were very nice about it... More
