Read high reviews and ate here with my family. We were starving and couldn't wait to have a pizza. When it came out it was the thinnest pizza I've ever had I mean I like thin crust but I'm shocked they could put toppings on this wafer, speaking of toppings the cheese was so thin you could see the wafer...

Who knew I'd have to go to COSTA RICA to get some of the best pizza of my life? I've had NY pizza, Chicago pizza, crappy Pizza Hut pizza, and, living in WV, sadly, some of the best pizza is to be found in the freezer case. I was surprised to find myself enjoying a savory sauce, hearty crust, and... More

Fantastic pizza. Always fast service. Even better customer service. All the workers are friendly and always smiling. Prices are very reasonable for Jaco. Best pizza and customer service in town.

I am so surprised to see the good reviews on here. The employees were friendly enough. The prices a bit steep. But what was the worst was the pizza. We got a cheese one for the kids, which had VERY little cheese on it. And we got a supreme type for the adults. From first bite it was overpoweringly spicy.... More

The pizza here is the best around. Perfect crust, right amount of sauce, buy it by the pie or the slice. I returned to Jaco after a year, first place always is The Pizza Shop.

I've been a waitress since i was 16....and have always had great food and service here. I did have 2 bad experiences with the quality when getting deliveries however when i told them my problem it was taken care of right away. I spoke to a manager, Sam i believe, and my food (being delivered) was outstanding. I appreciate them... More

We appreciate your review. We want people ordering our pizza to-go to be able to enjoy the same great product that we serve fresh here at the shop. As you know after spending some time in Costa Rica road conditions/insane drivers/animals make delivering fresh high quality pizza quite a feat. We are striving everyday to make sure our pizzas to-go... More

This is by far the best pizza place in Jaco!! The Salame pizza was great, the oregano really gives a nice different taste to the pizza

This place is phenomenal! We have ordered pizza from them a couple of times, and each time the guy that answers the phone is wonderful, the pizza is always prompt, and a huge large pizza for $20 is not bad at all! Our apartment is kind of hard to find but they've always made sure that we get our food!... More
