“A must for any trip to Montezuma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Tierra y Fuego is hard to get to and well hidden, but worth the drive. The pizza was phenomenal. The crust is superb. We were there in slow season and the service was excellent. We are a family of 5 and the owner(?) seemed to be the one waiting on us. Very accommodating and there is a complimentary limoncello at the end of the meal. Atmosphere is wonderful. Quiet, secluded and comfortable.

“If you're in Montezuma, you must visit Tierra y Fuego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

We went here our last night in Montezuma and it was Fantastic. We were greeted by the owner and another man who was kind of like a liampiamesas (busboy) except he gave us our menus. The menu is not in English, just a heads up.
They use a real fire oven, the owner even let me come back and take a picture with him in the kitchen (¡yo dije a usted que nosotros daremos cinco estrellas en trip Advisor!), the pizza was fantastic (four cheese pizza) and my parents loved the home made lasagna. We had all three desserts and I loved panna cotta with chocolate. The staff was the best, like el sano banano and cocolores, super friendly welcoming place. Wish I could go back.

¡Gracias por todo, tierra y fuego!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

This is the best restaurant in Montezuma. The food is delicious, and the owners are very nice and family oriented. They would go the extra mile to prepare any food you ask for. Prices are reasonable. The location is quite good, although not beach front.

“Quirky and lovely Italian pizzeria in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Great food, I mean really nice pizza and very quirky hosts that greet you with big smiles as you arrive after the adventurous trip up the hill. Best food in Costa Rica is typically on the coast bc of expat influence and this is certainly a good example!
