Great pizza and fun atmosphere

My wife and I enjoyed a half veggie & Hawaiian pizza on my birthday and a few beers. It was very tasty. Seemed to be a great place for family dining. Highly recommend!

We ate here every day during our stay at the Hotel Costa Verde. The staff is amazing. Menu is simple but the pizza and sangria are delicious. The monkeys provided the entertainment.

The food is fantastic! The prices are great. It feels like your seating in the middle of the jungle because you are. The staff is very friendly and remember you as we ate their twice on our stay.

Thin crust style pizza, which was pretty good. Good option for families. I have a son who loves trains, so it was neat to see a full-sized wooden train car in the restaurant. Did not have a friendly waiter who seemed disinterested in helping us. Took a long time to get his attention. There was another woman who worked at... More

We came here as part of our tour. We all ordered freshly made pizza that you can see being made and cooked in the brick oven. We all enjoyed the pizza and there was plenty. Didn't have anything else off the menu.

Watch the pizza chef make your pizza in the brick oven! The pizza was delicious! The mosaic tile art on the floor is beautiful! Great atmosphere, service is always good, and the pizza is delish!

The pizza was good, thin crust and... More

We were told by the hotel that they closed at 10 but when we arrived found out it was 9. The manager still took us in (now that is customer service). We enjoyed the wood oven pizza and I had enough left over to eat for lunch the next day.

We have been coming to the Manuel Antonio area for 15 years.. found this place about 8 years ago; we eat here at least 2 times each trip. The pizza is amazing; the sangria is yummy and the manager-- Cesar- is always warm and welcoming.
