The pizza was fine, a bit more cheese than crust though. The service was not very friendly and it was hard to ask a question or get the check, but not a big deal. The restaurant was clean and a nice atmosphere, despite the loud music. Personally, would rather got to Rancho Tico or La Luna for their wood fired... More

The $10 pizza deal on Saturdays cannot be beat and is definitely worth a try. We called ahead for a pick-up order on a Saturday as we figured that would be easier on a busy Saturday night with two young children. The ceviche and pizza were so good the first time that we went back for more the next Thursday... More

I went with two friends and called in to get our pizza done 10 min before arriving. The staff was very friendly and easy going. There are not many restaurants in the area but there are a few pizza spots, this is certainly one of the best of not the best. The food was delicious and the price was reasonable,... More

Unfortunately, when we ate here it was too busy. Great for ambience but the wait time was far too long and when the food came my calamari was cold. The pizza was good and the vibe was great. My daughter did not like her pasta. The one man band was entertaining and the waiter was nice but we had to... More

I cannot say enough about the only Italian Restaurant in Nosara. Maybe there are more but they don't taste like this. Pizza crust is perfect and the Greek Pizza is my favorite!

Sounds a little weird but is darn good! The staff are very welcoming and we have tried it three times during our visit. It has always been very good!

The pizzas are thin crust and delicious. We always have to get the carpaccio appetizer. It is our favorite restaurant in the area. Sometimes they have $10 pizza night which is wonderful deal. The food takes a little time to arrive but it's always worth the wait.

Started my dinner with the best focaccia I have ever tried! The dough was just right and perfectly cooked! The savory rosemary olive oil garlic and avocado topping was very abundant! Then came my shrimp pizza which I have mixed feelings about. It was very tastey with the right amount of cheese and good sized shrimp. It tasted great but... More

This restaurant is not located directly with all of the other local beach restaurants but do not miss it! My boyfriend raved and raved about their cerviche and I can not say enough about how great the pizza was. It was thin crust and better than most pizza I have had in the U.S. including NYC! The tables were beautiful... More

Make sure you have some time to get your dinner, but this place is really good. Try the tuna carpaccio, it's divine. My kids say it's the best pizza they have EVER had.
