Great Pizza and Service

We enjoyed excellent personal pizzas here and the service was excellent as well. The specialty pizzas were great and the portions were enough for us to take to our rental to have later that night.

We had lunch in town twice while staying up at Racho Pacifico ... the pizza is just the best and the staff are so friendly ... the open air dining area is pleasant with breezes even on the hottest days.

The first time i went to La Fogata I didn't enjoy my food because it arrived too late, but all my friends were happy with their "pizza and spaghetti", so I thought that I will give them a second chance. It wasn't a good idea because again the food -all of them, not only my "foccacia"- arrived too late.... If... More

We noticed signs for this place all over town so decided to try it. We pulled up to a beautiful yet empty restaurant. Usually we see emptiness as a bad sign but it was raining all day so we thought maybe people were not going out to eat. We sat down and waitress brought menus over. Did not greet us,... More

This is the next pizza I have ever eaten. And a great value. Don't leave Costa Rica without trying La Fogata!

We stopped by Pizzeria La Fogata as we got back to town late and didn't have many options. The service and food were excellent and we were glad they could take us on a holiday weekend without a reservation. If you're craving something familiar, or even just something easy + convenient, give them a try.

Our food was really good, we had pizza, some pasta and their touted "roasted chicken". What really made me impressed was that my son scraped his toe on a rock while we were there, peeling back part of the skin on the end of his toe. Our waitress quickly offered her help cleaning it and bandaging him up. Great stop... More

Recommended by our hotel but it was a real miss. Poor service, long wait, and didn't have their signature roasted chicken available.

Biggest menu in Uvita! We had a delicious experience here. The grilled fish was one of the most delicious things I had in Costa Rica. The service was on point and we couldn't have asked for more from our experience there.

We ended up eating twice here. The specialty is roasted chicken and pizzas. Coming from Seattle, I don't claim to be a pizza connoisseur, but it was yummy. The chicken wasn't something to call home for. I'd recommend to order the pizza. The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable, and the setting is relaxed. If you are looking for... More
