“A PLEASANT SURPRISE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

i read tripadvisor review after having driven by this restaurant a dozen times and decided to give it a try. wow, what a pleasant surprise!! the facilities suck, but the ambiance was great and the pizza even better; and don't leave with out ordering the burrata salad. the owner and all of the waiters go out of their way to welcome, care for you and serve. the pizza has little or no competition in costa rica and i will return for it and the BURRATA!!

“Donjuandelajungla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

WOW! Incredible. New York pizza in Costa Rica. I've been eating pizza for over 50 years. The Corner pizzeria has the best pizza by far that I've eaten in CR. Let's start with the dough, best bread, nice texture and crusty, cheese had good flavor and texture and the sauce deliciosa. I believe in destiny and as destiny has it I enter the restaurant and welcoming me with open arms is an old friend Marcello, I'd know a few years back from another restaurant in CR and is part owner of the Corner. Marcello and the young lady at the cash register are deliteful hosts. Been there twice for pizza and calzone. Can't wait to return and have some pasta with my favorite two sauces, pesto and pomadoro. The price? Very reasonable. Bon appetito.

“Such a lucky find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

In Costa Rica I had some of the worst (in a pit stop at Jaco) and best pizza of my life. This place served some of the best, and we found it by a happy accident.

The pizza was incredible, including the fugazzeta we tried for the first time. The service was good and the atmosphere and vibe were pretty much perfect - cozy, not at all cramped; mellow, but still lively. We stumbled upon the place and had a great last night in the country, but it's worth making a point of swinging by if you have any time in San Jose.

“Amazing”

Amazing food and service, one of the best meals my wife and I had ever had in Central America. Marcello is an excellent host and makes you feel at home in this cozy restaurant.
