This place is a little off the beaten path and not too fancy however the owner and the chef were wonderful. The place is owned by a young Costa Rica man and he tries his best to make sure you are very comfortable it is very small establishment. He went out of his way for us, literally running to the...

Great pasta and service. We had the alfredo with ham and the penne with tomato, garlic, and goat cheese. Both were delicious.

My friend and I went here almost every night while we were in Tamarindo, we really liked it! My friend craved the Bolognese and I had regular spaghetti with Pecorino cheese, scrumptious. We also liked the wine they had. It was a Chilean Sauv Blanc that we ended up ordering online afterward bc it was so tasty!

The service here was very good. It is a small restaurant with six tables outside and about four inside. We ate there three times in two weeks. Each time having Bruschetta to start followed by a different pasta.

We stopped here because they advertise $1.00 per pizza slice. The server was nice, we ordered 2 slices and we enjoyed them. Pretty hard to beat for the price point. It is by no means fancy but if you are looking to get something quick to eat just grab some pizza and go. I cant speak for the other food... More

Was just walking by when the waiter asked me if I wanted to taste the best pizza in Tamarindo - sure thing! While it wasn't the best I have had, it was definitely good and great value for money. The base was thin and crispy, just the way I like it! My waiter was relatively young looking fella who was... More

We have visited the restaurant on beginning of July/ low season. The waiter was friendly, but on the end he brought different size of pizza, the one more expensive. The food is quite small, not very tasty, it has far way to Italian pizza or pasta. The price is quite high for the offered size and quality.

We had a great meal at little Italy. It was all delicious! The owner was very sweet and made my daughter's gluten-free noodles (I brought). My chicken Milanese was awesome and the salad was great. For our family of four it was about $50 and we had a few glasses of wine. It's right next to the Gelato place next... More

We happened upon Little Italy Pizza when looking for pizza at 5pm. No other pizza shops were open until 5:30pm. They had a very nice thin crust that was crispy on the bottom, yet still moist on the top. We ordered one prosciutto pizza and one margherital. They served it with fresh crushed tomatoes as opposed to a classic tomato... More
