“If you're in Montezuma, you must visit Tierra y Fuego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

We went here our last night in Montezuma and it was Fantastic. We were greeted by the owner and another man who was kind of like a liampiamesas (busboy) except he gave us our menus. The menu is not in English, just a heads up.
They use a real fire oven, the owner even let me come back and take a picture with him in the kitchen (¡yo dije a usted que nosotros daremos cinco estrellas en trip Advisor!), the pizza was fantastic (four cheese pizza) and my parents loved the home made lasagna. We had all three desserts and I loved panna cotta with chocolate. The staff was the best, like el sano banano and cocolores, super friendly welcoming place. Wish I could go back.

¡Gracias por todo, tierra y fuego!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

This is the best restaurant in Montezuma. The food is delicious, and the owners are very nice and family oriented. They would go the extra mile to prepare any food you ask for. Prices are reasonable. The location is quite good, although not beach front.

“Quirky and lovely Italian pizzeria in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Great food, I mean really nice pizza and very quirky hosts that greet you with big smiles as you arrive after the adventurous trip up the hill. Best food in Costa Rica is typically on the coast bc of expat influence and this is certainly a good example!

“Very good service and pizza but you have to take a taxi to go but it worth te travel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We liked everything , the service the atmosphere and te food specially the pizzaand the calzone are very good but it is outside of the village so you have to have a transport to go overthere. Taxi is about Ten dollars, so for four persons it's not so expensive.
