This place is very chill. Open outdoor seating and an open kitchen. The guy who took our order (owner?) was from Wisconsin. Very nice. He gave us house shots when we walked up. (it's sugar cane liqueur and hot sauce, not great but interesting) Pizza was good, ingredients were fresh. The dough is pretty soft from all of the humidity... More

We had been in Jaco for almost a week and had seen construction taking place downtown. One night while we were walking through town we saw that it had opened! We went in and got in line and were greeted by a very friendly girl who explained everything about the restaurant to us. She explained how they made their own... More

Travelling in Central America, we tend to always be a little worried that food will be different, well this was different in a sense that we got better pizza than we are used to in Ontario, Canada. My daughter was given a shot of Cacique Guaro while waiting, for free; people are just so nice in that Country!

A great change of pace after days of chicken and rice. The crust was perfect and the cheese was real, which is a rarity in Costa Rica. (I have eaten way too many cheese slices these past few days.). Guys working were nice. Will return next time in Jaco!

The pizza was really good. Order "the Dude." Staff was very friendly and had great English. We sat here for a while, but was approached by locals to buy things since it's out in the open.

We couldn't have ended our night any better. The pizza was bomb! To top it off, the service was amazing! Very welcoming and friendly people, especially Kevin. If you're looking for a big slice of pizza with a lot of flavor, you've gotta check this place out!

In a country where the food is pretty bland, they don't use many spices, the pizza shop is the holy grail of pizza places in the world. They've got all fresh ingredients, and they now how to make you feel like you're at home away from home. Do yourself a favor, come check this place out. Kevin and Joe will... More
