I have been to this place about 7 times in my travels to the area. (family house) and this is one of my two favorite places to eat. Every meal I have had is amazing. From the gnocchi, to the seafood pasta to the pizza. The flavor is great and the service is acceptable. I suggest trying it, and if... More

Have visited Playa Flamingo a number of times. Always plan to go to Tubla's at least once. Excellent wood-fired pizza and friendly staff.

Enjoyed the hospitality we experienced from start to finish. Although this was our first visit, we felt welcomed as familiar customers. Both my wife and I had pasta dishes which were excellent. Saw the great looking pizzas going to other tables--I'll be back to try one! Great food, excellent, friendly service.

We went to Tubla and were happy again with our meals. The wine was great, the pizza was tasty and limoncello was wonderful! Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Like the sun rises each day, you can count on us to return to this little slice of Italian heaven! For almost 8 years we have been enjoying the wood fired oven pizza, eggplant parmessan, tirramassu, Panna coppetta, appetizers......etc! Owner Daniel and his wife, both from Italy, are always there to welcome us home. Miss this and you have missed... More

This place has decent Italian food, considering you are in Costa Rica. We ordered take out food twice from it. Since the kids like pizza, it is hard to go wrong. Again, remember you are in Costa Rica and not in the states.

My husband and I recently had dinner there and it was very good. We shared a shrimp, avocado, green leaf salad and it was extremely fresh and excellent. The salad was the perfect size for sharing. We had the supreme pizza - it was thin crust - I would have liked to see a little less sauce - it made... More

Food was excellent! If you want real Italian food and really good wood burning fire pizza come to Tubla. The owners are nice and accommodating, plus the server is so nice. We came here 3 times because their was so much to choose from. You will not go wrong with Tubla.

I go here regularly about once a month. The wood-fired pizza here is the best in the area. I've never been disappointed. My wife usually gets the pasta and has never been disappointed, either. They will always start you off with a small cheese baguette pizza, which is a nice touch. Also, they finish with a complementary limoncello. The owner... More
