Had meat pizza with roasted mushroom and basil, watched it being made and cooked. Only complaint was to hot (not spice) to eat straight away. Made very welcome owners and staff and nothing was to much trouble.

During a recent visit to Bocas, my friend and I went to Ciao for Pizza, not once, but TWICE. Seriously amazing pizza anywhere in the world, made extra special by the cozy, jungly atmosphere and warm owners. Also, don't miss the chocolate bars sold there!

We went there for dinner and loved it. Loads of people living on the island recommended us ciao pizza. Create your own pizza with fresh ingredients was exactly what we were after. A good red wine and lovely owners at the bar and the evening...was perfect. Very good vibes. Also we had our dogs with us which wasn't a problem for anyone. Good and fast service. Great experience will definitely come back.More

Would you think to find an excellent Italian pizza, by global international standards, in Bocas? Well, Ciao Pizza is definitely one. Top-notch dough and oven, toppings very good given the supply constraints, nice and lively atmosphere with very friendly owners. Wholeheartedly recommended!

Maybe our expectations were low, as Italians in Central America, but the pizza here is definitely nice. Nothing of the other world (we have high standards though 😅) but affordable and a nice different option after a seafood overdose. We came back after the first...time, which means a lot!More

Delicious pizza, but get there early as this place fills up and they can only make one pizza at a time. The pizzas are a 12”pizza and we ordered the Energy pizza (ham, bacon, pepperoni, onion, sundried tomato plus cheese and sauce...if I remember correctly)...which cost $14. I think this might have been to most expensive one on the menu (which consisted of 8-10 different pizzas though you could certainly make any pizza you wanted with the extra toppings available). We also had the salted caramel gelato with real Carmel pieces in it (all homemade) and it was delicious. The staff were fun, friendly and courteous. Definatly recommend this place.More

This place was recommended by friend and we are so glad we tried it. It’s small and relaxed and the couple running it are absolutely lovely. The humous starter was freshly made on the spot and it was so so soooo good? The pizzas were...made fresh on the spot and again really tasty and then the ice cream....heaven! It’s a 10 min ride from town but absolutely worth the trip!More

The pizza was tasty and fresh. The proprietor was friendly. Do yourself a favor and have whatever dessert he makes! All homemade sorbet and gelato.

Walked to here from our hotel. Tiny little place only open 4 days a week I believe. Pretty much serving from a shed in their garden. Pizzas were tasty enough but was a really quaint and different setting to most restaurants we ate at. Far...superior to our experience at skullys across the road.More

We stopped for the gelato because we were told they did not have very good pizza. The gelato was very good with homemade caramel. It is $3.50 for a small cube of it, but it is very good. We watched the pizzas being made and...thought they looked good with plenty of toppings, so we ordered two of them to go. You can get whatever you want and they have a wide range of toppings as well as a menu of different pizzas. It was great to watch the entire process, from forming the crust to watching toppings being cut and placed on the pizza and the result was yummy. Oven fired pizza is the bomb! The only thing that bothered me was that the same person handling all of the ingredients with bare hands, also handled the money and then the other person who put wood on the fire, handled money and also the tool to take the pizzas in and out of the oven, handled food with his bare hands as well. I never saw either of them wash their hands and we were there for about 45 minutes. Everything else was great and they worked pretty efficiently together in a tiny area. They do have beverages too, but we did not purchase any.More
