We stayed at the nearby Buena Vista Villas and had some pizza and pasta delivered directly to our room in a rain storm. The pizza was very good and the pasta was so fresh and tasty. The flavor was excellent! I think the pasta was actually my favorite thing we ordered. I wish we would have been able to dine... More

First let me thank you for coming to Victoria's, we truly do value you and your thoughts. Normally I do not respond to many reviews but when someone gives us a 2 Star.. for Price, I need to nicely address it. First, Costa Rica adds to all checks a 10% tip and 13% tax...which we have no control over or... More

We started off by just wanting a Pizza, but found out that Victoria's was much more than that. Mark the owner let us try the tuna appetizer and it was to die for. The next night we came back and started off with the NY pizza as an appetizer because we couldn't forget the great flavor. The shrimp & sausage... More

We went Victoria's for pizza on August 15th. Little did we know how much we would enjoy not just the pizza but everything about this restaurant! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The service was excellent! Mark, the owner, made us feel so special that we decided to eat there again the next night which was our last night in... More

We were so pleased to enjoy excellent Italian food in a restaurant with great ambiance and excellent customer service. Our server, Oscar, went above and beyond to ensure our experience was exceptional. The owner Mark stopped by to check on us and we made sure to stop by on our way out to let him know how much we enjoyed... More

We had some great and a not so great dish here. The pizza and shrimp pastas were very, very good, but the pasta and meatballs were way too salty and the sauce was not very good. Both my wife and son couldn't eat it. Fortunately, the pizza appetizer and other dishes were enough to share. The brownie sundae was a... More

Our server was really good, especially relating to our 8 year old. The pizza is large and very good (a large was too much for two adults). However, it's an expensive place, even if you just order pizza. Get the banana flambe, and pull out the video camera. It's a fire show.

Victoria's delivered the most delicious pizza right to our house during one of the worst rainstorms I have ever been in! The driver was dressed head to toe in rain gear. . . and the pizza was still HOT and delicious! Loved the chicken and white sauce pizza. . . fantastic thin crust!

I know what you're thinking. Why would i ever go for italian food in a place like costa rica? How about - because it's really good! I am a New Yorker so i went in very skeptical, but this is very tasty stuff. If this place were home, i would eat there often. We had pasta with spicy sausage and... More

I had the spicy pepperoni pizza followed by the brownie for dessert and I have to say they were both to die for. We went on our first night staying at Tulemar and have already decided we have to go back before we leave. The service was great and not slow at all. I loved how the owner came around... More
