“Some of the best pizza anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

New name,new owners-same great pizza. We ate there last year and it was great. We have been four times so far this visit and it has been excellent each time. Sauce is just right and I even eat the crust-something I don't usually do. You can even talk a little hockey with Joe if you start to miss it. Make it a stop at least once, you will be glad you did!

“Really bad”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Worst pizza in town, and pizza in Costa Rica is bad to begin with. Plus it is fairly expensive (although they do have a half off night).

We thank you for your time in writing a review. We are sorry that your experience did not live up to your expectations. As you are aware we are making pizza in a third world country. This makes some ingredients very cheap and others worth their weight in gold. We try to pass on as much savings to the customer as possible. Hopefully on your next trip through Costa Rica you will give us another opportunity to show you what great products we have.
