We were delighted to find authentic Italian fare on the outskirts of Coco Beach! The pizzas are superb and my favorite was the Funghi. Nice casual atmosphere. Location is nothing to write home about - basically a roadside diner. However, the food is worthy of comparison to anything you will find in a mid-priced restaurant in Rome, Venice or Naples....

As many other reviewers suggested, great service, very good food and good prices. If I was to criticize I would say use a bit more cheese.

We were recommended by locals and visited several times! The pizza is out of this world and very affordable! The pasta is out fo this world. The wait staff is friendly and attentive! Very busy for dinner. They do not serve lunch. One mile off the main street in Coco, they are on the road to Ocotal.

The place was packed when we ordered our food for takeout. We ordered greek salad, caesar salad, margarita pizza, and pepperoni pizza. Everything was quite good.

Excellent food--homemade pasta, wonderful thin crust pizza. I was in this area for about 3 months, and ate here several times. The wait staff is friendly, efficient, and helpful. A great meal at a decent price.

I went to La Caveja in January. They had an amazing salad bar -- no I wasn't only excited about it because I'm vegan-- everything was extremely fresh, and didn't look like it was sitting there for hours. As for the food, I got pasta with garlic, oil, and vegetables; and loved it. Staff is friendly, service is great, and... More

Fantastic thin crust pizza, great menu. Went out of their way when we ordered a drink to find it since they didn't have it in the restaurant. That's service!

We were a group of eight. Service was excellent and the food very good. Pasta dishes and their signature pizzas were enjoyed by everyone in our group. We visited the restaurant four years ago and it is still very good. Don't miss a trip to this great restaurant.

Very good meal! I had spaghetti bolognaise and my sister had spaghetti a la Caleja. Both meals were very hot on arrival with an excellent presentation. Very tasteful! Meal followed by a cafe latte. Waitresses were very welcoming with good service. I would definitely recommend'

How do you know if an Italian place is good? When you see all local Italians eating there, that's a pretty good indication. This place did not disappoint. They make everything from scratch and you can see them rolling the dough out in the kitchen. My son had the pizza and the crust was so thin and crispy that it... More
