Great pizza, good prices, on the waterfront

I was avoiding the restaurants on the waterfront because the prices were outrageous, but I stopped to look at the menu here and was surprised that the prices seemed reasonable. So we stopped in and had a pizza and spaghetti carbonara. The pizza was great, so was the carbonara, and we couldn't... read more

I had a late-night hankering for a calzone and this place was perfect. It was enough for 2 people easily, and excellent quality. Very nice servers here as well.

Beachfront restaurant, beautiful views, in a nice Nicaraguan ranch. The pizza is incredible, as well as the pastas. Very good prices for the delicious dishes. No credit cards accepted. I totally recommend it!

Good food reasonably priced with awesome sunsets. The kids go play on the beach and the adults can walk them and maybe enjoy an adult beverage or two while the kids entertain themselves

My husband and I enjoyed our food and the beautiful sunset from Pizzeria SJ La Playa. I had a glass of wine and he had two Tona beers. The Capprichosa (tuna) salad and the olive and pepperoni pizza were excellent. The service very good, prompt and friendly. The views of the ocean and the sunset were very romantic. Italian owned....

I've been to this place several times and always enjoy their food. Although I've noticed they have raised their prices over time, (not that it is bad practice), I do find them to be a little bit on the expensive side. Nonetheless, the food will not disappoint. The service, on the other hand, could use some upgrades. I went there... More

Service was good, the atmosphere relaxed, the glass of merlot chilled and delicious, the views of the beach (even by night) unparalleled. And most importantly: the food was great. If you like real Italian pizza - with a thin crust - GO. You won't regret it. I promise.

This restaurant, located right on the beach in San Juan del Sur, is owned by two Italians who believe in preparing food as done in the old country. The vast array of pizzas never disappointed (we went back there night after night, and sometimes for lunch) and the linguini with mushroom sauce and artichokes was worth an extra trip in... More

Just returned from our 8-night vacation to Nicaragua. Stayed at Pelican Eyes (which had great steaks and fish) but we at half our dinners at Pizzeria San Juan, which was on the beach and walking distance from Pelican Eyes. Our group of 13 couldn't get enough of their authentic thin-crust pizzas and wonderful Spaghetti Pomodoro. Great flavor, reasonable prices, and... More
