Small pizza restaurant situated close to the Park Inn Hotel. Relaxed feel inside with friendly staff. Lots of choices on menu which were written in Spanish and English. The pizzas had been freshly made and baked in a pizza oven, they had a crisp stone baked base and very tasty toppings. I had the one with fresh tomato and basil,... More

Depending on your point of view, the pizza here can be disappointing. It's pretty average, but good for San Jose which is not a real pizza hotbed. There's a lot of it, just not very good. Anyway Corner Pizza is a nice place, the service is good. Two gals serving try hard to please. Wine selection is the bare minimum.... More

Very friendly - quality of food was good and starters (mini calzone) were huge. Nice to be able to sit in very much a local eatery rather than one of the world wide recognised chains . We had great fun here.

My family ate at this place out last night in San Jose. Menu in English and Spanish. Lots of choices. We enjoyed the Suprema and the Ham and Cheese. Sangria was yummy!!! Price for a family of 5 with drinks was same as in states. Staff was friendly, attentive, and nice! We would definetly recommend this place.

The best pizza we have had in Costa Rica. Not a thin crust, not a thick crust, perfect thickness with an appropriate amount of seasoning. The Pizzeria shares a old house (100 years old), with a Hostel. Very atmospheric. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced. The two ladies that served us, were extremely nice. Try their pizza dough desert... More

We really like to try new places and this is one of them. The pizzas are very good, it is moderately priced and a cool place to go for dinner any night of the week.

Having sampled many pizzas in Costa Rica, The Corner, is by far the best. We had a ham and mushroom and a suprema and they were both delicious! Beer, wine, soft drinks, and many other menu selections are available. The owner and the waitress who served us both spoke excellent English. It is a casual dining experience with great food...

Fantastic food and even better staff. Not really sure how to review properly as it's the first time I've actually cared to review a place (perhaps that says something in itself). We went a few times at our stay in Aldea Hostel but one time we ordered two pizzas: one 4 cheese and one with sardines, capers, and olives. While... More

Staying at the Radisson 2 blocks away. Excellent salad, pizza, and wine. Great service, great atmosphere. Very safe place for those concerned. Easy walk or 2$ taxi or Uber. Highest recommendation

You have to be very patient to eat here; the food is good, but there is only one waitress for the entire restaurant. Out of the 5 dishes ordered they where out of 2 (no lettuce for a restaurant with 7 salads with lettuce as main ingredient), but everything else was good. Service was slow but friendly
