Loved this place in Pipa. You will not be disappointed with the pizzas. The place is also a baker's and serves breakfast.

A good location holds a named pizzeria. Good service and pizzas, but some attention needed (many ingredient failures...). Italian cuisine needs to be well treated.

If you are looking for having pizza for dinner, this is the place to go. The pizza service starts at 19:00. During lunch, they only offer sandwiches. The pizzas are excellent, with thin and crispy with good topping. Their juices are also very good, and freshly made

Visited Pipa in June, and went to Terra Nostra Restaurante (also known as Padaria Central). THE BEST pizza and Pasta. Amazing people. They are very welcoming. The place is cozy. Only if it rains, then tables are limited. Service is great. I strongly recoment this place if you visit Pipa, Br

We stopped here prior to checking into our house and I'm so glad we did! The padaria in the corner smelled heavenly and tasting the delectables confirmed it was. The chocolate croissant was amazing! Dough was perfect and there was a lot of chocolate. Not one of the seven in our party was disappointed. Would go back!!

As Pipa resident Terra Nostra is one of my favorites for lunch. Pasta is awesome, as near as you find to that of Italy. Really nice location and the usual Pipa laid back feel. Dont miss it

The lovely Argentinian lady who has the Padaria in the corner of the restaurant just makes the best Croissant on earth, the texture simply fabulous and chocolate rich and so divine in taste and texture...get her to warm it up a little, sip a drink hot coffee with it and watch the wonderful Pipa unfold in front of your eyes,...

Fantastic hidden little Gem, romantic, breezy, a block from the Beach. Food is five star, Amazing service, specially if you are fortunate enough to be waited on by Francisco and Betinho!!! Delicious drinks, timely manner, half a block from Main Street downtown in Pipa. I can't wait to travel back to Pipa and dine here again!!!
