“Worth a trek up the hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

The place is owned by very friendly italians and they really make your experience grand. Not only is the food wonderful (get pizza, it's really worth it, but had 4 dishes that were all excellent), but the setting is beautiful, outdoors and away from the beach. The $5 cab ride is totally worth it and it is the 2nd or 3rd best place in or around MOntezuma (Cocolores and Playa de los Artides the others). Oh, and it is a better deal, too.

“Best Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

Wow, what great find! Excellent wood fired oven pizza, beautiful welcoming space, colorful gardens and beautiful wooden tables. Up the hill above the Montezuma waterfall in Delicius, owned by a wonderful couple from Italy, Pepe and Monica. Only open on the weekends. Highly recommended!

“Incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

We noticed their small sign by the road one afternoon and drove up into the hills to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised when we finally found it and decided to go back that evening for dinner. Wow were we glad we did! Incredible wood fired pizza and delicious pasta all handmade by the owner/chef. The owner crafted all the gorgeous tables and built the wood fired ovens. I can't say enough about how lovely the setting was an how delicious all the offerings from the kitchen were. We can't wait to go back!
