Friendly service, great pizza, awesome shots- after we ordered the cashier/owner offered us a free chiliguaro shot which was excellent. Great tunes all night and good advice on the town and the surf.

Wow, being our first time in Jaco, Costa Rica. Our first restaurant was The Pizza Shop down from our hotel Mar de Luz. We made the right first, second, and third choice so far. We had a very good Calzone, which was large enough and delicious enough to feed the wife and myself. Then we enjoys the best prime rib... More

We are glad you found The Pizza Shop. The calzones we offer are definitely worth a try, but its hard to miss out on our pizzas or Earl's meat. Thank you for taking the time to review us, hope to see you back here soon. Pura Vida -The Pizza Shop More

Glad your pizzas arrived hot and tasty. You need to come out The Pizza Shop to see what Hey Earl is smoking that day, because summer sausage is not his only forte. Thanks again for the nice review. Pura Vida -The Pizza Shop More

My mother and I were walking down the main strip looking for something informal/semi quick to eat and we were drawn into the Pizza Shop by the upbeat music and colorful murals. When we approached the counter we were immediately offered free shots of some kind of spicy, tobasco spiked liquor. We weren't sure what pizza to get so one... More

Thank you for your nice review. The Don Eduardo pizza (tomato and pesto) is named after one of Jaco's most colorful surfing characters, if you are lucky enough you can catch him at the shop every once and a while. Glad we could make your stay in Jaco more enjoyable. Pura Vida -The Pizza Shop More

We ordered a pizza to share, which came after 40 minutes, although the place was quite empty. They had forgotten our drinks as well. The pizza was alright. The service was very friendly and they offered us another drink for free in compensation for the waiting time, which was nice of them.

Thank you for coming into The Pizza Shop. We appreciate your nice comments regarding our service. We are sorry for your pizza taking longer than you expected. Sometimes we get several delivery orders placed in a short time span, and it takes the pizza a little longer to arrive at your table. Hope to see you back at the shop... More

The Pizza Shop has the BEST PRIME RIB in Jaco!!! Bar none. Only served on Thursdays. There pizza is also amazing! We were lucky tonight as they were trying out a new desert, key lime pie which was also delicious! Staff are friendly and clearly enjoy working there! I would recommend this place to everyone!

Crazy. Good looking and nice tasting pizzas for fair prices. Service is unbeatable: Joe and Kevin make you feel like you are their most important customer. Also: the fire shots here are perfect.

The chef out does himself with his prime rib dinner on Thursday nights. The prime rib melts in your mouth, served with baked potatoe salad and bread. $13.00 USD it's worth the trip.

We went to The Pizza Shop for lunch our first day in Jaco. After traveling around Costa Rica for several weeks and having pizza on several occasions, I can safety say this blows everyone else out of the water! Highly recommend the 'Haole' or any pizza with in-house smoked meats on it! The owner Kevin was very helpful with recommendations... More
