Great food, friendly and prompt service. Recommend lobster ravioli. They make their own pasta. Close to playa grande.

We only had the pizza but it had a great unique taste and the dough had sort of a European flavor. Going to be a go to place for us when we're here in Playa Grande.

This is our go-to spot for, what I think, is the absolute best pizza in the area! I have tried pretty much every pizza place from Tamarindo to Potrero and the pizza here is our favorite. Great flavor (you don't need to dump tons of salt, oil, etc for flavor), always cooked perfectly (gas oven helps it to actually be cooked rather than burnt bottom and raw top like many wood ovens) and great topping selection! Always excellent service and I really like the calm home-like atmosphere. I would LOVE to try the pasta someday.... but the pizza is so good I can't help but always order it! Great prices too!

Excellent little spot in Playa Grande! The pizza was delicious!
Muy rico lugar, comida, y servicio!

We met some friends here who go every Tuesday for pizza and swear it’s the best in town.

Nuestros amigos nos dijeron este lugar tiene el mejor pizza. Ellos comen por acá cada Martes.

This place has a gas oven, which was awesome because the power went out just as we arrived. They welcomed us in anyway and we drank beer by candlelight while the kids played with LEGO’s and games.

Este lugar lo tiene un horno de gas. Muy muy bien porque cuando llegamos, electricidad apago! Pero aún, los tuvieron birras frías y comida. Y juguetes para los niños.

I love a place where the owner is waiting tables!

Me encanta un lugar donde el dueño está trabajando y hablando con los huéspedes! Súper bien servicio!

Great place for kids, they do accept Visa.

Buen lugar por familias. Se aceptan Visa.

We had pizza but have heard the pasta and fish are also on point

Solo teníamos pizza pero los otros nos dijeron toda la comida están ricisimo!

Delightful male host and waiter who was such a gentleman and so patient. I loved how he suggested some items for our group of five with also one take out dish. We finished two bruschettas. I had the ricotta spinach ravioli with pink sauce. The sauce could had been a bit hotter but I ate all of it then soaked up the sauce with the yummy bread. Others in our group had fettuccine ala vodka, spaghetti bolognese, Margarita pizza and chicken pizziola. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. We bought home for the two people at home had the pesto fettuccine and ate every last bite.
