We went here as one of our first restaurants and 3 more times after that. We loved it there! They had great service, best gluten free pizza, amazing food (including the desserts and if your ever wondering witch one to order don’t stress they are...all the best), nice people, and rain coverage. Great place for family and friends. I would definitely recommend going to El Sapo.More

After days of mediocre food in Tamarindo I saw this restaurant on TA and it was close by so we went for dinner. We loved it. Great, awesome, incredible eggplant appetizer, though we didn’t like the shrimp app (they were head on and strong). The...pizzas are delicious and the four cheese pasta. Camilla and Nico (??? sorry, the beer was really good and strong!) gave great service with a smile which seemed rare in CR.More

Best pizza I have ever had!! Wished we had discovered it earlier in our trip as we would have gone back. Make sure you bring cash as it made them mad when we paid in colones.

The pizza at this place is so so delicious. We have tried many of the pizzas and have even customized a few. Our 3 year old is always excited to go get pizza and high-five her favourite server Camilla.

Truly outstanding pizza!! We live in Chicago and this pizza exceeded almost any pizza we can get back home. In fact, we’re trying to decide if there’s any that we like more than this. We’ll be back!

This restaurant was so delicious that we went twice during our stay. The sangria is phenomenal and literally the best any of us in my friend group have ever had! The pizza is fresh and delicious, a nice thin crust like they serve in Italy....I do not remember what it was called, but the burrata pizza with added prosciutto and basil was incredible! Why has no one ever put an entire burrata ball on pizza before?? We also tried the gnocchi in the tomato sauce and it was soooo good. You could tell the sauce was fresh and homemade. If I lived locally this restaurant would be a weekly stop!More

Excellent food and service. We stayed inPlaya Langosta and really enjoyed this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was very creative. We enjoyed La Luna pizza and even the burgers were amazing. The Algo Picante salsa is made locally and is the best...addition to any meal you can make.More

Great brick oven pizza and best gluten free pizza I have ever had (and I have had lots). They even had Daura Damm GF beer which is delicious and my favorite. Service was also excellent.

Our waiter advised us that he was a psychologist, and had been delayed waiting on us because he was providing his services to the bar tender (who overcame his “issues” in making me a wonderful Negroni). We asked him to provide us some counseling services...over which pizza to order. His solution was the pizza made with prosciutto, arugula and burrata. Best pizza ever.More

Great drinks, but more importantly the best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Quizzed the chef and got some details on the ingredients and also learned that they have a different pizza oven for gluten free items. Nice mellow atmosphere in laid back Playa...Langosta.More
