Awesome pizza

My wife & I decided to try this restaurant on our last night in Playa Hermosa as we had heard a lot of good things from the locals and from North Americans who had moved here.

We decided to try another pizza place and we are glad we did. Pizza Bocha was very good and they delivered right on time.

We've had pizza here, whether take-out or in-house many times over the years. The first time was about 5 years ago and it was the best pizza we have had in Costa Rica. Well, things have changed and I'm entering this review in the hopes that the owners do something about these unfortunate changes. Recently, we had the absolute worst... More

Ordered a takeout one evening, the "Suprema", hoping it would have all the goodies, but it was mediocre. Minimal number of toppings, a base that was certainly not home made and the cheese was barely melted. Rather disappointing!

Let's start my review with this: Pizza Bocha has no cervesa. That's right, no beer. How can you have pizza with no beer?!! So we ordered red wine which was actually pretty good. We also ordered the meat pizza. The pizza was good, lots of toppings but a little light on the sauce. Over all I'd recommend Pizza Bocha! P.S.... More

The personal pizza here looked like the kind you but on the frozen section and pop in the microwave. The "Argentina" empanadas were really calzones and nothing like empanadas. To top it all off, it was very expensive. The only bright spot for this place was the good service.

We've tried a number of pizza places throughout Costa Rica-usually with mixed results. For those who aren't familiar-pizza in the land of Pura Vida can be (and usually is) widely different from what you may be used to at home (wherever "home" is). We had driven past Pizza Bocha numerous times on our way to Jaco and, finally decided to... More

I'm a pizza snob, and I couldn't believe how good the pizza was here. My friends and I shared a large half supreme, half chicken gorganzola pizza, and it was delicious and filling. Crispy thin crust, lots of cheese, fresh toppings, and inexpensive. Miriam was a super friendly server, who kept the cold beers coming and even changed the tv... More

I liked the food here, it was pretty average though. Nothing really special about the food here. Service here was okay.
