Best restaurant in the area. Pizzas and chicken wings are delicious and the care is top quality. If you visit the Uvita area and want to eat well, you should go to "La Fogata Restaurant" in addition to excellent food, could have a very good conversation with their owners.

our party of 4 ordered 2 large pizzas, full vegie and a goat cheese eneldo topped with fresh smoked salmon there were. On both, crust was very oily, like if there was an abuse of Pam non stick spray under and below, you could taste the oil. Crust was NOT thin, it had like a pita texture instead of the... More

We had dinner and everything was pretty much average: pizza, service, and prices. The food was ok, they had relatively many choices on the menu. The place is ok for Uvita if you're not expecting too much, but there's better places / pizzerias to go to.

Very thin grilled pizza with lots of choices. Alternatives to pizza for those that want other kinds of Italian or local food . Service was relatively fast . One of the best restaurants in UVITA.

Too much hype about this below average restaurant. I'd compare it to a Denny's in the states. The salads consisted of tired, wilted lettuce, orange, flavorless tomatoes and old, yellow broccoli (pee-yew). The roasted chicken that they tout on signs leading into Uvita was so dry, it was like chewing on a towel. Our girls ordered the bolognese pasta that... More

It was so unexpected here but the pizza was excellent! They offer beer and a few tables to sit in or out and enjoy the views.

To be honest, I may have been expecting too much based on Tripadvisor ratings. I thought I would be amazed, but instead had a regular, decent meal. Other reviewers mention the restaurant's nice ambiance, which is true. It's in an open air building with soft lighting, surrounded by lush vegetation. Some people talked about slow or bad service. This wasn't... More

Ordered Meat lasagna and Italian Sausage pizza. Meet in the lasagna had a strange texture. Pizza was thin crust style yet not very crispy. Service was average.
