We happened upon el Vagabondo before doing a scheduled tour and were beyond pleased with the establishment as a whole. The pizza, cooked in a brick oven right there by our table, was delicious (even when I ate it for breakfast the next day.) Highly recommend!

Stopped here for dinner in La Fortuna and this food was excellent. Though not the best pizza I've had (I'm from Chicago) it was well made in a brick oven, looked great and tasted better. This location is super convenient, has a quaint souvenir shop next door and is decorated very cute with beautiful lights at night. Absolute tons of... More

I've had better pizza at fast food pizza places for far less money. Lacked flavor in toppings and sauce was not good (sweeter and bland). Personal pizza can feed two (if not very hungry) but for like $15-17$USD it should be more than a personal. Was VERY irritated that I said I just wanted water to drink and was served... More

Vagabondo Pizzeria is next door to our hotel so we'd seen it on the first night however we were unable to visit this night as the restaurant closes on a Monday.  We decided to eat there on Tuesday because we wanted some 'untypical' cuisine.  Two of us ate there with two pizzas and two beers for less than $20.

20 people, could only order 10 personal pizzas. Waitress needs some courtesy lessons. Will not come back!

We wanted pizza and ask a local where was the best one at La Fortuna. They suggested this place and we where very satisfied with the result. It was baked in a fire oven with a bit of flour left on the crust. The service was excellent. Loved it!

Great choice of pizzas with nice thin crust. Laid back atmosphere. Good choice of wines. This was our third visit here, and we try to go every time we're in La Fortuna.

Average at best. My husband wanted to try it out because he thought it was authentic Italian pizza. What a disappointment!!! Won't go there again.
