Delicious food and beautiful sunset...

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... read more

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

Highly recommend for a few different pizzas. Great location and really good bruschetta to go along with the really good pizzas.

Great thin crust pizza right on the beach! The service was prompt and friendly, and the pizza was fresh and there were tons of options. Try the salmon one! It can get full some nights, but if you are looking for a change from the local cuisine, this place is a good option.

We followed TA reviews an recommendations by local friends. We were thinking: Pizza in Nicaragua by the beach? Really? But We were pleasantly surprised. The pizza cooked on a brick oven was great tasting and made with fresh ingredients. We were a large group and arrived late. The place was packed, and some of the selections were not available. But...

Located on restaurant row, this establishment offers great views of the sunset and a tasty meal. Had the tomato bruschetta and a margherita pizza, both very good. The pizza scene has improved tremendously in the five years since I was last in town. Back then I was treated to pizza with ketchup instead of tomato sauce (not at this restaurant).... More

I have to visit every time I go San Juan del Sur and try a new pizza, because everything is so authentic and delicious. The service is average, but the view couldn't get any better right there on the beach.
