We spent 5 nights in El Castillo and had many great meals at Pizza John's. This place is literally in the jungle. The pizza is second to none, John has a great set up there, complete with dinning and a killer roof top patio. I highly recommend coming here you wont regret it!

John takes serving people as an art. Come with an open heart!!! The pizza is basic, but you can taste the love!

John was so much fun! He truly loves Costa Rica and making great Pizza and homemade ice cream. The ice cream flavors were amazing especially the honey/rosemary. Well worth stopping by. Plan ahead for what you'll write on the walls!

The kids were so happy to have delicious pizza!!! John is super friendly and willing to visit with his patrons. Taco, the dog, was very well behaved and friendly. John has a fabulous location and great stories to share! The homemade ice cream for was superb. And as if that wasn't enough how fun to write on the wall whether it is a five year old writing their name or an adult writing 'pinkies up pirate'. We will be back for sure!! Congratulations and best wishes to John and all of the adventures in this 'next chapter'!!!!

We traveled all day from San Jose, Costa Rica to be met by Pizza John at his wonderful restaurant. El Costillo is very remote yet when you see how many names are written on the walls it is nice to know that this paradise has been seen by people all over the world. John is gracious and fun! What a gem, we loved it! Pizza and ice cream - both are amazing! Best place in town!!! :-) Love from the Canadian girls! Pura Vida!!!
