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

We stopped by this place for a quick lunch 11-19-13. It seemed there was only one person working at the time and I watched while with latex gloved hands he played on his phone, fist bumped a friend, handled money, took our order...and then to our amazement, proceeded to make our pizza with the same gloves on without so much...

This is hands down some of the best pizza I've had anywhere in the world. Who would have thought in Jaco, Costa Rica of all places?

There is no Pizza in Jaco that can compare to The Pizza Shops'. It's the best! This place has made a serious comeback since its new ownership takeover about a year ago. You can see the owners are passionate about making quality pizza because they use fresh, local ingredients. I didn't have high expectations for pizza in CR, but these... More
