Description: Best Pizza in San Juan del Sur, brick oven and 100% italian ingredients
Reviewed April 17, 2013

One of my favourite spots when visiting San Juan del Sur. They had a new wood burning oven shipped in from Italy last year. The pizza is very good, the closest you can get to a real Italian pizza, given the ingredients available in Nicaragua. The service definitely needs to improve, but who needs to eat in 20 minutes when vacationing in a beautiful ocean front town? When service is slow I just order another coke and watch the scenery. Make sure you try their Tiramisu', when available. They only make it fresh so it's not always on the menu. Also, if owner Maurizio is around then ask for one of his delicious seafood pastas, if not you can ask co-owner Alessandro to spin one of his pizzas or Panuozzi, an invention of his, half way between a pizza and a sandwich. Overall I rate it excellent because no where else can you eat original Italian style pizza or pasta!

Just ate there. Very disappointing.

Tried to order a sausage pizza with half without sausage. Apparently can't do that. Really?

White wine was terrible, even before it was watered down with water!

Calzone was undercooked. Thought I had ordered vegetarian. Apparently not. Waitress didn't care. Stood and glared at us all meal.

Atmosphere sucked.

Overpriced for bad meal in Nica.

Would not return. Sorry.

Best pizzeria restaurant in town, they have a lot of pizzas and all very tasty, even more so when they are less than 10 bucks and are big enough for 2

We grabbed a pizza w ham and a couple of beers here after zip lining while in town for the day. We may have just been really hungry but thought it tastes great with a perfect view of the beach!

A year ago the place had nice checkered table cloths, pizza at reasonable cost and good quality, however, this year, basic table coverings, unhappy servers, pizza quality less AND price increase, last year pepperoni pizza 160, now 180 cordobas, in Granada similar pizza 105 cordobas.

Check out the other pizza places, maybe better.
