If you're in Jaco man, go to the pizza shop.... debatably the best pizza..ever..anywhere. It has this chill resto-street bar thing going on too, which makes... More

Coming from NY, I can be very picky with pizza at times. I have been living abroad for the past four years and this is the first time within the four years that I have had pizza that was just like pizza back in NY. The prices are great and the slices are HUGE and amazing. I would definitely recommend... More

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.
