There are several pizza places in Atenas but I prefer Pizza Rica because of their style of pizza. Sometimes I like a cracker crust pizza but for a "real" pizza I go to Pizza Rica. They use quality ingredients and plenty of cheese. The flavors are.....an Italian pizza. You find them on Route 3 right across from Don Yayo restaurant.

I ate here twice while I was in Atenas. I have to say, the pizza is amazing. But setting that aside, the lady who works there is a great hostess/waitress/bar-tender. She is very personable, and works very hard to communicate with you, even though she speaks very little English. She'll hug the kiddos and laugh and interact with you, and... More

I like thin crust but if overcooked until it is dry and crumbling like I got, it is difficult to eat or hold in your hands. Their supreme toppings were very good, just didn't like the crust.

Who would have thought that Pizza would be good in Costa Rica, but it is! We did run into the language barrier, but one of the former owners was there, hopped off his bar stool and came over to take our order. Costa Ricans are so nice and helpful. AND....they make good pizza!

Pizza Rica loads up the pizza and they have a thicker crust than some of the other places in town. Great flavor and good prices. Just across from Don Yayo.

It was a quest of mine to find "good" pizza in Atenas. We have tried each and every location :-) Although there is gourmet pizza down the road (with a price to match), this by far is my favorite "hey, let's go grab a pizza tonight" choice.

Thank dkey
