Finally I got a decent pizza! The pizza is just great (tastes just like in Italy) and the icecream is incredible! The service is very friendly and attentive, too :)

They were good but keep improving their menu with tasty specials, you can have a great pizza in a wooden fired oven also pasta, antipasto salads and gelato.

As group of volunteers living in quepos, this is our favourite place to go. The food is really lovely and very reasonable, especially the ice cream. The ice cream milkshakes are amazing. The cocktails are strong but that's just the way we like them! The staff are really nice and always make us feel really welcome. Free wifi and easy... More

The food is good quality and delicious but I feel it is a little overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area. For the amount we paid, we could have gotten 2 meals of the same size at other places. The gelato was very good and reasonably priced! Be sure to get some while you are there!

Great Pizza from wood-fire oven. Not too thin and not too thick, just perfect. Prices are not cheap but normal for Costa Rica.

If you are looking for a treat of western style food - great place to get authentic Italian style pizzas with all the toppings you could want. The restaurant is comfortable and attractive, service is good and the ice cream are yummy! Pizzas are about 7000-8000 colones.

The pizza had a wonderful taste and was made with fresh ingredients. The sangria was way too small therefore overpriced and the ice cream amazing

I don't know if it was because I was starving when I tried it, but this place makes a delicious pizza! The waiters were very nice and attentive, and the price was reasonable. As a bonus they have a nice selection of ice cream. If you want to have pizza in Quepos, I recommend it.

The open atmosphere is nice. The staff is very attentive and patient. I had the raw beef appetizer which was delicious and a very generous portion. The pasta pescadero had a large variety of seafood and was delicious. There's a large selection of gelato for dessert.

We only had icecream at the restaurant which was good but rather expensive. The place was very hot and the staff seemed like they couldn't care less that we were there...
