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.

We have spent about 5-6 weeks in total in Jaco this past year, and having tried several restaurants we know from experience that The Pizza Shop is serving the best pizza in town. The owner is awesome, and I would recommend this place to anyone! Don't bother with any other pizza in Jaco.

The pizza at the pizza shop is superior to the rest of the pizza in Jaco. Their ingredients and preparation result in a great pizza! The "good good" meatball sandwich is also hot fire! Lived here for almost two years, definitely a staple!

We shared an early lunch and were the only customers present when we arrived. Joe, one of the owners, took our order, brought our drinks to the table, and answered our questions about how he came to move to Costa Rica and own a restaurant. The pizza was delicious, and he offered drink refills for no charge. We would definitely... More

Nothing beats a Tim Robbins quote about pizza to start off a review. We take a great amount of pride in what we do.

We visited The Pizza Shop a couple of times while in Jaco (including their infamous Wednesday night party). You can tell the ingredients and dough are very fresh! The guys (Kevin, Joe, and Fernando) are great and are more than happy to help with any advice to be sure your stay in Jaco is great.

So good my father-in-law, a Brooklyn native, demanded we have it a total of 3 times during our 10 day stay! Excellent crust, fresh ingredients and the owners treat their customers very well. A MUST! Who knew Costa Rica had pizza comparable to NY!
