“a fantastic place !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

this is truely our favourite place in this aerea !!! the food, no matter what is absolutely delicious !!!
as we like it so much we went there often and had pizza, pasta, fish and most mentionable dessert, each dish was amazing & the cheese cake and peacan pie is to die for !!!
I' m writting this after we tried out all the fancy restaurants in Ojochal.
The atmosphere is very cosy and laid back with a cute little romantic garden in the back, locally owned and great service.
I highly recommend this place !!!

“Sauce Balboa at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Although known for its great Pizza, my favourite was Pollo Balboa and the focaccia. Nice restaurant, with chilly music and a good chef. Staff is smiling and well trained.

“good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

It is a little bit far from the center.
The food is really good. As Italian I can also say that the pizza was tasty and big.
A little bit expensive.

“Some of the best pizza I've ever had!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Our first time staying in Dominical and friends in Uvita suggested we meet here for lunch. The pizza was among the best I've ever had. We ate here on our first day of our five day stay in Dominical. It was about a 20 minute drive from our rental house and I really wanted to get back to La Fogata for more pizza (even take out) but our schedule didn't permit. Agree with other reviewers that the service was a little slow and the waitress had limited English but the yummy pizza was worth it.

“Pizza off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I really liked the vibe here. Although we weren't the only foreigners sitting at the restaurant, it felt like more of a local joint. The wait staff spoke limited English. The pizza was fresh and homemade. We also had some drinks and salads which were good. Really good, simple food in a very relaxed atmosphere.
