Another pizza place that will not disappoint! Super thin crunchy crust with savory toppings.
You will be very pleased with the pizza, and I hear the other food they offer is fantastic, but I have only had the pizza.
Check it out!

My family of seven recently travelled to Tamarindo, Costa Rica (Feb 2014). One night we came across La Esquina while looking for a good restaurant for dinner. We chose La Esquina because it appeared to have a good atmosphere and was quite busy in comparison to some of the other restaurants close by - We were not disappointed! This restaurant offered a great variety of Italian inspired options and delicious drinks - especially the margaritas! This is a family-owned restaurant with great indoor/outdoor dining. I highly recommend the wood fired pizza. They also had excellent live music (Spanish guitar). Highly recommended!

We've eaten at La Esquina a couple of times this month. It is a lovely setting and the food is good. Although it is billed as a pizzeria, it is more light Italian. I find the setting to be much better than average and it is a great place to take children. Although they could use another staff member, the service is polite and pleasant, if not always fast. We have tried both pasta and pizza. And, as I mentioned it was good. Reasonably priced, I heartily recommend La Esquina.

Our find of the trip! Despite this place being a short walk from the Villa we rented, it wasn't until the penultimate night that we decided to eat here and to underline how good it was, we went back for our final meal in Tamarindo the next day. The staff were absolutely brilliant, our little girl wanted a Strawberry smoothie made with milk and not water, they did it without question, as well as removing the bacon and cheese from her burger. The kids were entertained by the outside play area while waiting for the food to arrive, which was reasonably quick despite a full restaurant. As other reviews have said, the pizzas are fabulous but for me, if you want a real treat, have the shrimp taco's, very filling, really juicy and great value, as was the rest of the food.

Great atmosphere, comfortable. Food was good. Pasta may have been a bit salty, but still edible. Pizza was good. Had to wait 30 min for a table. Left and came back, table ready!
