Per your review we are "good for a quick bite, but not the fastest service." Since you made yourself sound pretty silly we're putting your vote of second best pizza in the same category. Haven't seen the weather in Boston recently, but the surf report for here today says the water is 82 degrees! -The Pizza Shop More

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!

Happy we could keep your pizza void full during your tenure in Jaco. We love eating the "Good Good" as much as our customers do! Hope to see you back here soon. -The Pizza Shop More

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.

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