Lovely pizza and my favorite was on the menu, basically a margarita with chillies and pineapple. Could not finish it all so they gave me a take away box. Good service, if I was not leaving Quepos tomorrow I would certainly have gone there again. Only opens at 2:30pm so missed it when passing before.

First night in Quepos after a 3 hour drive from San Jose. A local neighbourhood restaurant with very good service. I repeat the pizzas were excellent amongst the best ever tasted.

Service was attentive. Pizza was authentically wood fired and superb. Salads plentiful and fresh. Limited wine options, but beer was a great accompaniment.

We arrived quite late (around 4pm) to Quepos, and the waiter welcomed us anyway. It is a spacious place to eat high quality pizza (the best i have eaten in Costa Rica so far). I recommend it!

I have a boat in Quepos and visit the area often. An expatriate friend who lives here full time suggested this place and warning signals should have gone up from the lack of customers. I am an easy person to please but will never go back to this place. I had the worst spaghetti of my life. Bare bones meal.... More

Finally I got a decent pizza! The pizza is just great (tastes just like in Italy) and the icecream is incredible! The service is very friendly and attentive, too :)

They were good but keep improving their menu with tasty specials, you can have a great pizza in a wooden fired oven also pasta, antipasto salads and gelato.

As group of volunteers living in quepos, this is our favourite place to go. The food is really lovely and very reasonable, especially the ice cream. The ice cream milkshakes are amazing. The cocktails are strong but that's just the way we like them! The staff are really nice and always make us feel really welcome. Free wifi and easy... More

The food is good quality and delicious but I feel it is a little overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area. For the amount we paid, we could have gotten 2 meals of the same size at other places. The gelato was very good and reasonably priced! Be sure to get some while you are there!

Great Pizza from wood-fire oven. Not too thin and not too thick, just perfect. Prices are not cheap but normal for Costa Rica.
