I did not expect to have fantastic pizza a block from our rented apartment in San Jose. I was very pleased with everything here from ambiance to price to the music and the food.

The Corner Pizzeria is a cosy little pizza place with great pizza and delicious appetizer bread rolls. Some nights they have live music, so if possible you should find out when they will have a musician in the restaurant and have dinner that evening! All of our pizzas were brought out on wooden pizza paddles, and they were presented beautifully.... More

Although we had to wait until it opened up at 6 the restaurant came to life fast. Service was courteous and prompt.

Our flight to SJO was so delayed and then customs took 2 hours! We got to our hotel (Grano De Oro) and their restaurant was booked. Soooo, we found this place...and it was perfect! Casual, delicious pizzas and salad and great live jazz. A great first night for sure!

I had read reviews on TripAdvisor and wanted to try this place. First, our server Denis was fabulous...very attentive and professional. The pizza was perfect. The crust was not too thick and a bit chewy. The large pizza was just what we needed to feed 2 of us. Prices were very reasonable.

This is an amazing place with awesome food and service. We had the margherita, ruccola and pide and all were amazing. The pide was my favorite though. We also ordered the nutellino and it was amazing. The service is excellent.

If your staying nearby which I did this time, this is a solid little pizza place. Food was good overall and service very friendly and prompt. Nice clean atmosphere. Great for a simple wine and salad/pizza dinner!
