We went back to Santa Teresa and we definitely had to go back to this place! Still a great option for pizza lovers. If you're ever at Santa Teresa...don't leave without eating here!

I'm a big fan of simple but tasty food, cocktails and chilled out vibes. Been here pretty much every night because Navvi is such a cool guy - super easy going, definitely did his bartender course and the pizza hits the spot!! Highly recommended.

They have good pizzas here, but the staff is really slow and unfocused. We waited for a long time just to order, and then even longer for the food. The cocktails were a little less than mediocre.

I agree with the other reviews that once you have had El Pulpo pizza then nothing else compares in town. And I do have to say that caprese salad wasn't very good either, the chese was pretty bland. But if you go here, try the pasta. I had the fettuccini Alfredo and my daughter had the penne with tomatoe sauce... More

So good, go for the simple 'Tomato' Pizza and add herbs and chilli. A Grande is more than enough for two people. Pura vida

My husband and I ate at Pizza Tomate after a long day out on the beach. The pizza was average - not bad at all - but definitely not somewhere that I'd recommend to others. You can easily have much better food in Santa Teresa!

I had the pizza there. It was great, tasty and freshly made. The staff was very friendly. They also had a TV which showed a lot of European sports, which I liked :) Just a bit overpriced.

Had pizza here the first visit and it was not, and will never be, as good as the pizza at El Pulpo right up the street. Second time I visited I sat for over 15 minutes (on a slow night with only three other tables) and waited on someone to bring me a menu. I decided to just leave and... More
