This place was conveniently located next to my hostel. The pizza is to die for and not to be missed. There is also an awesome happy hour deal during the week.

Came here for lunch. Was recommended. I would submit the photos of the two large flys in my wine ( served that way ! ), but it would gross out many patrons on this website. Shrimp risotto is taking more than an 45 minutes.....and we are still waiting....
Stay away from this restaurant.

Greetings Valued Patron,

We apologize that your experience was less than exceptional. Your review prompted us to investigate your situation further. Our records indicate that you arrived approximately 11:53 am and placed your order around 12:05 for the shrimp risotto. The Risotto takes approximately 15-20 minutes to reach its optimum temperature and taste. Your meal was plated and delivered to your table at 12:30. So it appears that it took approximately 25 minutes versus the 45 minutes once your order was placed.

Due to Costa Rica´s tropical climate, sometime unforeseen things occur. The staff promptly changed your beverage once you brought it to our attention. It is our goal to make sure that your dining experience is top-notch.

Our staff was flattered to have you join us again a few days later for breakfast, and we welcomed your compliment and high praises on your meal. We are pleased that you gave us another opportunity to serve you. We value your business, hope to see you again soon.

I ate lunch there and it was excellent. I had margarita pizza and it was excellent. Thin crust, just the way I like it. I would recommend it. Fair prices.

We had Fugazzeta pizza and nice cold Imperial beer. The owner came out to greet us and Rafa was our waiter. Kudos-good food/good service.

we arrived quite late and wanted to eat a pizza and ordered 2 large ones. The waitress took the wrong order and we received some kind of meat pizza with pork. (I have been vegetarian for 16 years) When I tried to explain the waitress that we ordered a different pizza, she was blaming us for that. Anyway, after 5 minutes the correct pizza appeared, which seemed a bit odd to me and the chef literally scraped off the previous toppings and put new ones on. Only realised it when I found a piece of ham. absolutely disgusting treatment.

We are very sorry for what happened to you at our restaurant. We think it is extremely important that every customer receives the best service possible at The Corner. We believe you were offered the choice of a new pizza when the incident happened, and somehow still accepted the previous one without the meat. Sometimes, the different languages spoken can potentially lead to some misunderstandings. However, we always have employees here to help with those barriers if necessary and would have gladly make a new pizza for you. The employee in question has been advised and will be required to ask for help when needed. We apologize again for the would be happy if you would give us a second chance!
