Nice pizza

We visited this place on saturday evening as it was one of the only places open. Thought that the town might be busy. We ordered a pizza and side order and had to only wait a short time and the food was there. Fantastic pizza. Would go again if in town,but not on a saturday night...

When ordering pizza with my wife, the issue is that I must give way to her preference of light and simple vs. my bold and spicy. No problem in Restaurant Escalofrio where they will prepare an equal portion of the pizza for her and for me. My anchovy dominated portion was great and I tried a taste of her order,... More

I had a buffalo mozzarella pizza, and it was delicious. The rest of the menu was pasta and other specialty pizzas. I was not interested in most of the other options, but I would order the buffalo mozzarella pizza again! High quality ingredients and the dough tasted homemade. We were hoping to try the restaurant's well-known gelato, but their gelato... More

Whatever you get, it will be awesome. The servings are huge, so consider splitting an entre. I got the lasagna de carne. Very rich and creamy. Oh, and don't forget the gelato when you finish. For $2 a scoop, it's a deal AND delicious.

We went here because we were craving pizza. The pizza was wood-fired and great. There were four of us and we each ordered a different pizza. They all were marvelous! The atmosphere was typical Costa Rican. They had great wine and, of course, cervesa., The service was also very good. They also have wonderful gelato.

We went for a pizza with some white wine and liked the atmosphere very much. The waiters were very friendly and the food was delicious. Also the laidback house music in the background and a huge variety of Italian icecreams are worth mentioning

I'm from Chicago (home of great pizza, not speaking of deep dish) and really enjoyed this place. The pizza, pasta and... Calzone - best I ever had? In Costa Rica? Huh. We even had it delivered one night - very fast.
