The pizza was delicious however it wasn't gluten free like advertised, I'm celiac and had to suffer later but it was delicious. If gluten isn't an issue for you I highly recommend it.

We happened upon this place by accident and were very impressed. The location is easily accesible and very clean. The staff (Sandy) are very friendly, the menu selections extensive and the food very good. We asked for a large pizza with half and half toppings from the many available options. They easily accomodated our request and the result was awesome.... More

Had the BBQ Chicken pizza, which was very good. Staff was friendly and service was fast. You will need to drive down a rock dirt road to get too it, but then again everything in Costa Rica is on a dirt road. Do yourself a favor and stop in and enjoy some truly good pizza.

We were brought here by our guide. He was consistently good at this. Clean, friendly and good service. We traveled in a large, mixed family group and the gracefully gave us separate bills.

Service was excellent! Our waitress was patient with our butchered attempts at Canadian Spanish, and she was very mindful of a food allergy. The pizza. I've read "underwhelming", and can only guess that it might just be people who left their tastebuds elsewhere, or who were expecting a Boston Pizza or something of the sort. The thin crust is excellent... More

Great food and very relaxed and calming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and kind. Beware the chicken meals are gigantic! Highly recommend.
