This place is great! You would think that any Pizza place that had ribs would have both bad pizza and bad BBQ. Definitely not here! This place has their own BBQ master so you are definitely in good hands with Earl! The Pizza is equally strong. They offer a great variety of Pizza, many combos not seen in the USA.... More

Let me just start out by saying that the people in Costa Rica are super friendly! My wife and I ate at the Pizza Shop Several times during our trip; we couldn't get enough of their pizza! We recommend this location to any one.

We went a couple of times to pizza shop because their pizzas were one of the greatest we ever ate plus it's located in the center of town and of course they have such a nice ambience and extraordinary hosts.
