As other reviewers have noted, this place is run by an ex-pat who is conversant in both English and Spanish, as well (presumably) as her native language, which I forget. As we are staying directly across the street, we couldn't be happier to find them. As i don't eat meat, and my daughter doesn't any a great variety of things, this place is perfect for us. Good subs, toasted and full of veggies, as well as thin, crispy crusted pizzas made to order. Prices are reasonable for this tourist town and there is a bar of sorts. By that I mean that it is not fully stocked, but does have the basics. It is clean and offers outside seating as well as outside tables with clothes and flowers. A great little gift shop full owned by a girl from Manhattan occupies the other half of the place and is full of locally made jewelry and wood items carved beautifully. Makes for great gifts and souvenirs, although you have to make sure that you pay the owner. Liz is incredibly sweet and prone to offering to give people things. Her two year old daughter is a cutie, so help mama support that little doll!

Very personal. We went several times (my daughter developed an addiction to their "Peach Melba" and began to feel like friends. The food is very reasonable and very good. The veggie pizza was my favorite. Take a small gift to 2 year old Alexis, who is always there - be sure it is "azule" and she will charm your heart.

We were glad to have found this pizzeria after a few days in Playa Flamingo. Everyone enjoyed the margherita pizza and the smoothies for an early dinner and also took back to the hotel another all meat pizza. Just make sure to come early for the subs as they run out in the evenings. It is a casual place with outdoor seating and the staff was very fun and pleasant! I can definitely recommend!

If you want one of the best pizzas you'll ever eat, try this place. We just wanted to eat something quick and close to the resort. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed every bite. We went back for another visit to try the subs...they were ok, but the pizza is the way to go.

We found ourselves at the Flamingo Pizzeria every day! The pizza was good but the company was amazing. The people who worked at the restaurant were so friendly and offered advice on things to do and see. They were mostly expats and treated us like part of their family. If you don't stop for pizza at least stop and have an adult beverage!
