nice pizza

The crust may be not as excellent as at near by's Tramonte, the filling is better here. Also, the glass of wine here is reasonably priced, good quality and a generous serving. Bravo !

My family and I had a great meal and experience at Johnny's in Monte Verde. While we thoroughly loved our restaurant at our hotel we would pass by Johnny's during our Daily treks to sites. We all agree we glad we came. Thanks to Osvald our waiter we explored the menu and daily specialties of the casa And selected a... More

The staff were very good, food tasty and portions very good. The decor was nice too. We got there pretty late but the staff did not seem to mind and did not try to hurry us out. They were smiling and courteous all the time.

We had dinner here one night. Our waiter Ignacious (sp?) was super friendly and attentive. The pizza was very good with a nice thin crust and fresh toppings. My 8 year old who is a very fussy pizza eater loved his pizza. The also had local craft beer, and Ignacious came over to tell us the local lore behind the... More

...but the staff indifferent and absent for the majority of our dinner. We had heard the pizza here was some of the best in the area, and it was great. The downfall was the service; plenty of staff with a near empty, and large, restaurant. We were greeted by a friendly staff member at the door, the remainder of the... More

We ate a late lunch at Johnny's, which is a short five minute walk from the El Establo hotel. There was only one other table occupied when we arrived (about 2pm). The waiter was very polite and efficient. We ordered a Monteverde pizza, which was outstanding (The sauce was great). They also bring you garlic bread for an appetizer while... More

We didn't expect much from a pizza place in Costa Rica, but this was good. We had lunch here and thought everything was good. The Cold Coffee drink was fantastic!

A cozy, fun Italian restaurant with a wood-fired brick oven in the corner. The pizzas were delicious and they have a good variety. The pastas were very good, too, nice sauces. A little pricey, but large portions and everything was excellent quality. The kids loved that the drinks came with lovely flowers in them and the straw wrappers were all... More

Johnny's Monteverde Cloud Forest Pizzeria sounds like a pizza place but is far from it. They served the best steaks, lamb and artisan-prepared dishes we had while in Costa Rica. The service was spectacular, the food was "4-Star" and we ate there each night while in Monteverde. Ask your waiter about Johnny's Story. Fascinating.
