Ciao Pizza is one of the absolute gems of Bocas. We were staying in Surf Break at Paunch which is nearby, and ate in and got take away, both fantastic. The owners could not be nicer - we loved sitting around the beautiful table chatting...More

Comparing all other so-called "pizza restaurants" in the US and Panama -- this is definitely the ABSOLUTE BEST pizza I have EVER had. Both the owner and lead chef are VERY friendly and amicable people. Their smoothies are on-point as well. My friend and I...More

Lovely little place run by a couple who are super friendly! Delish pizza (and I'm not a big pizza fan!) cooked right in front of you in their small pizza oven. They even tried out some new garlic fries on us (also delish!). Do take...More

Pizza handmade and fresh ingredients in their brick oven can't be beat. You may have to wait as they can only bake one pizza at a time but these only take 5-7 minutes at most. This is so worth it.

Ciao Pizza is a cute, small place with a lovely owner. We just tried the pizza over there. A margarita pizza is 8 dollar, you can add some extra ingredients at your choice (this is always good). There is just one pizza oven, so don't...More

The pizza here is amazing. And I am from NYC! You can sit at the bar and watch your pizza being made to order. The outdoor seating a stone's throw from the beach adds to the great atmosphere here.
