A very nice venue not far from our accomodation but very poor service and average food. Not worth a return visit.

The ambiente and atmosphere is really nice and the service absolutely friendly.

The Pizzas we ordered got an 8 out of 10, and the roasted chicken a 7 out of 10, since it was a bit boring with the tortillas and tomatoes only.

Overall good value for money and absolutely recommendable.

We saw the signs for the Pizzeria and decided to give it a try.

Nice open air restaurant. We ordered garlic bread and the Bahia pizza. Both were very delicious.

Service seemed slow. It took a while to take our order and there was only 3 other tables filled. As we were there the tables filled and I was quite surprised some people didn't leave. The table next to us gave their drink order and didn't it come for at least 10 minutes.

We had asked to box the rest of our pizza. It was in plan site for at least 15 minutes as the girl got distracted and someone else wrapped it up and had no clue who it went to. Since we were close and watched to make sure it didn't get tossed, we were able to get the girls attention when she turned around and wondered who it belonged to. After another 10 min. or so, we finally walked up and got our ticket.

I don't mind the slow pace of life, but service was super slow. The girls were more interested talking to someone at the bar.

I went to this place twice during my stay, for Lunch and for Dinner.
The pizza was great, very reasonable prices and friendly service too, even if a bit slow.
One of the nicer restaurants in Uvita, recommended!

My family of 4 ate here twice and did a take home as well. We all found items we liked. The Bar B Que chicken pizza was my favorite.

Not much English here but no problem. The staff is super patient and very helpful. It is very clean, outdoors but no bugs. They are open later than most and that is an advantage for a town that rolls up the streets just past sundown.

Follow their signs down the rock road past the bridge. It's almost hidden tin the trees.
