“VERY NICE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had dinner at Pizzeria ristorante Vagabondo the first night we arrived to volcan Arenal. It was a good experience, good solid italian food served in a clean well lighted dining room, had minestrone and pizza for dinner and liked them both. Well worth the money you are charged.
Over all a good place to stay, clean and safe, I truly reccomend it.

“Best Carpaccio in Costa Rica - GREAT veggie pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Loved the crust, the fresh veggies.. and the carpaccio was thinly sliced and well seasoned. Really a great place to eat.

“Good pizza but slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Good pizza with a variety of flavors, but the service is extremely slow. Don't go if you are really hungry or in a hurry. Averages prices and a good, clean atmosphere.

“Delicious Wood Fired Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Stopped at the restaurant because it was one of the closest to our hotel. It, like other Costa Rican restaurants, is open air.

There were five of us in our group. Four of us ordered pizzas, they were wood fired and delicious! I had the Margareta with Shrimp Pizza. It was delicious. Although the pizzas are individual sized, they are very large and could be shared.The fifth person ordered a pasta dish, it was definitely not as good as the pizzas. Also, the Minestrone soup was excellent.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

“Not bad pizza, service was hit and miss.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for a change of scenery from Tico cuisine and whilst it was tasty it wasn't the best pizza. The restaurant was quiet and yet we almost had to help ourselves for service. The bases were slightly too thick and as a result doughy in places. They do have a good selection of wines and cold beers. Altogether a good meal but wouldn't hurry back.
