The pizza is thin and delicious, freshly made with courteous service. Also had some pasta with shrimp and it was also very good. We had a pitcher of lovely sangria as well as their excellent local lime drink with basil. Very good meal overall.

Another of our favouries. The location (Plaza Real) is very good, a lot of people around a good buzz about the place. The seating spills out onto the concourse which adds to the hustle and bustle Not a place to go for a romantic night but that said but you see many couples here. Food is always of the highest...

It's situated in Plaza Real, a little plaza with half a dozen restaurants and a few shops. Most of the restaurants here are very good. I've visited here many times over a couple of years and never been disappointed. The pizzas are excellent. Really thin and crispy with just the right amount of toppings. The pasta, especially the alla vodka... More

They serve a very good pizza, thin crust and super tasty. We also tried eggplant with mozzarella and tomato sauce, you have to try it too, it is excellent!

Luis was a great person to help us on our visit here he was very knowledgable and was able to explain different options on what we can do even with the language barrier. The food was very delicious and well worth the money

La Fabricca has the desire to cook italian with local ingredients, which is always a challenge for local business trying to cook international flavors, even when this place is one of my favorites because of the oven cooked pizza, still average

I am from New York City and always thought that New York City pizza was the best. This restaurant near the airport, has the thinnest crust, great toppings and all done in a wood fired oven.The clientele seemed to represent an upscale population of costa rican society. A very nice surprise for our last dinner in Costa Rica.

We enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere, friendly waiters and delicious pizza. There was a free minibus at 7.30pm from the Holiday InnExpress, and return buses at 8.30 and 9.30 (only 8 minutes' journey). Otherwise, a taxi is easy.
