Wanted to grab dinner at a local spot. It was relaxed with a more local feel and less touristy. The waiter spoke little English which was fine. It gave me a chance to practice what little Spanish I had. The salads are big. The pizza...More

I had the veggie lasagna here, and it was very good. I also tasted a little of the caprese salad, and it was delicious. I enjoyed the setting and had a good time here.

Always a part of our Uvita vacations. Great food, every time. Ribs, chicken, seafood, pizza....it’s all good.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Uvita. You always get a warm welcome and the food is very good, not just the pizzas (which are also very good). We like the "off-the-beaten-track" location too.

Service was OK, pizza was OK, atmosphere was good but I would overall not return. Sign says Fire baked chicken. Would have liked to order the Fire Baked Chicken but they were all out.

Very cozy restaurant with excellent pizza. Their specialty is a trio of great sauces for your pizza: garlic, red pepper and honey. Good service, full bar, excellent menu with entres as well as an extensive list of pizzas. Many vegetarian selection available.

The lasagna was very good actually. We tried the pizza as well, and we felt it was undercooked. Not close to great pizzas we've tried elsewhere. We might need to go back some day and try something else from the menu

Great pizza and pasta. Open setting so wear bug repellent. Large drinks. Polite staff. Definitely a place to try in Uvita.
