“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

The owner has two spots, one on the beach and one by the Church. The pizza is thin crust Italian. Baked in the stone oven. The restaurant on the beach, you can stand there and watch your pizza being made. The food is top notch for sure. The only thing negative I have to say is the one on the beach, the waiters could be a little more friendlier. In my opinion the food is great

“YUM!”

Amazing food and service with tables down on the beach - covered and cool with the incredible view! We weren't going to eat anywhere twice, but we cheated with Mauricio's! SUPER family friendly!

“Awesome Pasta!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Mauricio's is a great place to hit up for Italian food, especially for ex-pats who need their fix. I would recommend the pasta, it is to die for. My favorite sauce is "al pastor" which I usually get with penne, but the homemade ravioli is delicious too. Although pizza is good if you need your pizza fix, it's not my favorite pizza. I would stick to the pasta. Mauricio's is obviously a great cook and everything I have had has really great flavor. Try to show up earlier or later to get a seat outside.

“Pizza was fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Right across from the church, the place is not much to look at, but the pizza was one of the best we've had in our many travels. They are big enough to split and there are endless options!. Use the spicy oil on the tables for extra kick!
