“YUMM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

This wonderful little restaurant just off the main strip in Montezuma comes to life every night surrounded by candles and with the scent of delicious food. The owners and service are great and the pizzas are deeeelish!!! I love this little spot. A gerat place for food and a great place to watch people coming and going from town as the sun goes down and the livliness of el centro ramps up for the night! Great for date night, family night, or a night out with amigos!

“Best Pizza in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

You must eat here when in Montezuma!! The pizza is amazingly delicious, and the homemade garlic and chili oils make it even better!! I miss it almost as much as I miss the beach! When you do visit, don't forget to order a glass or two of vinto tinto from Juanluis.

“delicious pizza, great wine and excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

I love this spot in Montezuma and I eat here every time I get the chance to visit! It's family owned and run, good vibes and amazing food! I love to get a pizza and a carafe of the house red wine to share with a friend. Perfect combo.

“I could eat here every day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

I highly recommend this restaurant...after trying almost every restaurant in Montezuma, this is by far the best!!! Great pizza (ask for the Mexicana special pizza, it is not on the menu, but worth asking the chef to make!). This family-run business is located right near the bus stop and the tables in the back are quaint and nice. The service is always great! Besides the pizza, they also have huge salads and home-made pasta. Be sure to eat here when in Montezuma!
