“Nice thin-crust pizza, beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Of all the restaurants in Tamarindo, this one has the best decor and layout. There is also a large play area for kids. The pizza is great, with a thin crispy crust and fresh ingredients on top. The service is also quite prompt.

“One of the best pizza I had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The restaurant is located just next door to the hotel Pasatiempo where we stayed in January, service is great and fast, they all speak English with an Italian accent! I had the Pizza La Baula with a little bit of everything. Honestly it's one of the best pizza I had.

“Good, but Nothing Special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Maybe I was just oversold on how good it would be, but I was not that impressed. Don't get me wrong, the pizza was pretty good, but compared to other places in town it didn't quite stand out enough to me in terms of taste and difference. It's getting a very good rating mainly because it's a fun place to hang out and enjoy the company of friends.

“Best Pizza in Tamarindo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Hands down the best place for Pizza in Tamarindo. If you are travelling to this area I would say stopping at La Baula is a must. Service was a little slow, but hey, whats the rush. It's a very fairly priced place as well.

“Great thin crust pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Pizza was fantastic. We arrived before it got crowded and was sat immediately. Service was a little slow to start, but wasn't an issue after our order was taken. Had to order a third pizza halfway thru our meal, and it came out quicker than the first two. All in all, great pizza and good atmosphere. Pura Vida!
