Excellent pizza and the staff speak perfect English. The décor is top of the line. They have a map of the town and will give you good directions...until you have been there you can't imagine how grateful you will be for good directions.
We ate at about 7pm and service was excellent.

Wonderful atmosphere, food and service. After a long, arduous drive from La Fortuna to Santa Elena, this was a welcome find. The staff were extremely helpful as we asked questions and made plans over a pleasant and tasty dinner.

I used to live in Monteverde and wish this place had been there back then! This is a great space with friendly staff and reasonaby priced delicious food. If you are looking for a break from rice and beans, come here! The pizzas are delicious! I have brough two groups here and everyone loved it. Everyone enjoyed the pizza and juices. I highly recommend this place!

Located close to the Rustic Lodge .... this is a must if you are staying in Santa Elena (close to Monteverde). The staff are really great ... really friendly and hospitable. The best food item on the menu is the pizza ... yes I know it's not local, but sometimes you need to fill up on pizza! They sell an excellent local beer called 'Libertas' which you MUST try. Everywhere sells 'Imperia'l, which is okay, but like larger the world over ..... Libertas is very good.

Had one of the most delicious pizzas I've ever had in their wood fired oven.

Great ambience, good prices and good service. Probably the best dining in the Santa Elena area.

They also have a nice bar area and some TV's showing sports.
