We had a pizza, penne puttanesca and burrata and all tasted great. This is my second time in six months and the ambiance has considerably improved. Also have great music mix. Highly recommendable.

Pizza is my favorite comida. I've been to some of the best places all over the world - London, Sydney, Copenhagen, New York and many many times to Italy. I've also often found great pizza in unusual places. On this trip I found it in a small place in the mountains close to Machu Picchu, in a small beach hut... More

If you're a pizza lover, this is the corner you need to visit in San José. The "Suprema" pizza is a must here. Try it with a Bavaria Dark on the side. Trust me. Simply delicious. It's a nice place to come as a couple. Or with a group of friends. Lovely place, lovely music, lovely decoration. Congrats.

We visited the place on sunday 29th of january. We ordered a small appetizer (focachini bread), this was the best part. For the main dish we ordered 2 pizzas. The pizzas were really tasteless. We paid 50USD, 4 beers included, heavily overpriced. We thought we would get decent quality and tastefull food for this price. We are really disappointed and... More

We went to this restaurant as it was close to the Dental Clinic we were visiting and my wife felt she could eat, as long as it was something soft. We arrived and were seated right away at near 7 on a Friday night. Staff was very friendly and helpful. My wife ordered a salad, some bread, and the shrimp... More

Visited with our two kids and all enjoyed it. Smiling and friendly service made it a great spot to hang out for a while. We had margarita, jamon and meat lovers - all really good! Felt expensive compared to our recent Nicaraguan adventures but the more we learn about CR the more this seems the norm!
