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!

Just in town for a one night stop over before flying home next day. We headed here for a late lunch and ordered a large pepperoni pizza between two of us. Thin crispy base just as it should be. It was served with chilli oil and garlic oil on the side to add and was exactly what we needed to... More

I had hoped for a light Italian (home of pizza) putanesca pizza but it was way too heavy with cheese, no olives that I could taste under the cheese and anchovies hard to find. Sad. The service was good and my sangria huge and pretty good.

My friends and I got to San Jose late on a Thursday night and not much was open. The hotel recommended this place so we gave it a try. They were due to close in less than 30 minutes but welcomed us in. One thing that we noticed immediately is that they changed the music to suit the Americans in... More
