Says this NYC native ( and San Francisco chef). In 5 months driving through Latin America this was by far the best pizza. Crust has flavor and is crisp. Sauce- what NY pizza is about-is perfectly seasoned, slightly sweet, herb-y, with a little pepper spice....More

We attended the national guy they had a chili cook off. We paid a reasonable price, got beer and 13 chilis to taste. In addition, they were passing out prime rib on focaccia and shots of guaro. The shop is owned and run by Americans....More

This pizza was delicious. It tasted like New York style. Sauce was a little sweet and a little spicy, and they used the perfect amount of it. We also got free shots while we waited. Bonus.

Description
New York Style Pizza in Jaco Beach Costa Rica. We offer whole pizzas, pizza by the slice, calzones, ice cold beer on tap, and run weekly specials. We make our own dough and sauce in the shop from scratch, and use only the freshest and finest ingredients available. Great for a quick lunch, or sitting down with the family for dinner. Open late on Fridays and Saturdays. Check our Facebook page for weekly specials!
