Good pizza and pasta if you are looking to have a change from the usual

Very good pizza. Gelato, service. Now we don't go to Quepos for pizza but this is a recommended in town stop. I've never been disappointed.

This is hands down my favorite pizza place in all the world. And to top it off they serve ice cream too!!! They offer many toppings so whatever you would normally order from Pizza Hut back home just order it from Escalofrio and you will never order Pizza Hut again!!!

Best pizza in the area! Excellent service as well. Shared a vegetarian pizza with a friend - served to us with only enough wait to enjoy a drink and each other's company. If I hadn't been watching my weight, I would have also treated myself to some of their delicious gelato! I've had it before and it's excellent!!

Just went there for dinner tonight with hubby based on reviews. We were pleasantly by the food there. Thin crust pizza we ordered was the Napoleon (has anchovies), so could be little salty. The crust was perfect and the size was enough to feed 2 people. I also had the fruit guanabana smoothie-best ever! We got some Gelato afterwards for... More

We were referred to this place by one of our whitewater rafting tour guides (his brother works there). We found it easily, and enjoyed the pizza and service.

We stopped in for a cold treat on a very hot day. The ice cream was very good, creamy and cold. That was the most important part. Melted fast once outside. Friendly staff.

Asked for an ice coffee with ice cream and got lukewarm coffee with cream. Not worth it. Maybe the pizza is, good, but they should work on the menu.

The pizza here is of high quality and the ingredients were very fresh! The Buffa pizza with fresh mozzarella is my favorite - I've tried 4 or 5 different pizzas from here and they were all good, but I would highly recommend the Buffa. Even though the pizzas aren't huge, they pack a tasty punch.

The pizzas were great -- not huge, but tasty. They seemed to be cooked in a wood-fired oven. The gelato was like in Italy -- very fresh and good. The mint chocolate chip was our favorite. Staff was very friendly and ambiance was nice.
