The pizza is delicious, cooked in a wood fired stove. The beer is cold! The staff is friendly and make you feel welcome. Although there is not a scenic view of the ocean, the "view" is no less spectacular...it is just different. The restaurant is nestled among beautiful trees that are home to rainforest animals and birds. I watched a sloth and her baby move about the trees while I was eating dinner. In my opinion, that was a pretty good "view".

The pizzas are great and the use fresh pineapple. The service is a bit slow but there are only two guys working. There is no view but you are in the middle of the forest. While sitting eating dinner we saw a sloth climbing down a tree. The price is also a good deal.

Good italian style pizza with fresh pineapple from a wood fired stove. Nice wooden tables with rockingchairs. Bit slow service. No view. 5500 colones for one pizza

After visiting plenty of restaurants looking for great price/value food; we found this lovely and warm service ; complemented with the best pizza i had ever try in this region. Cooked in a wood oven with a Pizzagiolo from Italy it was really great! Excelent choice for Kidds; Veggans and all of us.. Great Price ! A must go place if you are in Quepos or Manuel Antonio

We saw a giant wood-fired oven outside this restaurant so decided to try it out. We ordered one small pizza and it took over an hour to come to us even though the waiter kept telling us it would be out any minute (also, this was at the end of the night when there weren't many people there). The table next to us left after waiting for too long. Also, they (accidentally?) charged us for too many beers when we left so I had to argue that.

We went back a few days later b/c the pizza was great and assumed it was an off night for them. Service was still very slow but they didn't mess up our check this time.
