Great place on the beach in San Juan Del Sur. Decided to try out the happy hour for appies. 2 couples each ordered one of each at $5. each. Portions were pretty big compared to other places. That was enough to fill us up. Forgot to take menu pic. Service was excellent! They had soooo many servers everywhere all dressed... More

I had the Marinera pasta and it was great!! So much seafood for $14. Lobster, clams, mussels, calamar, fish and shrimp. I ordered a pizza for the fishing trip in the morning so I cant vouch for it yet.

Great pizza! They have a restaurant on the beach if you're looking for atmosphere, but if you want a lower key pizza spot, this is it! Good pizza, good pasta and of course ice cold beer! Can't go wrong!

Authentic italian food in the heart of San Juan Del Sur. Amazing pizzas and a real local vibe. This place is a must stop for dinner if in SJDS.

I ordered two types of penne pasta last week and really didn't enjoy either. The pasta was overcooked and both meals very salty. Maybe just an off night. Mauricio has been one of my favorites (after Villas de Palermo) over the past 10 years.

We've been clients of Mauricio's since he opened his restaurant years ago. It is quite close to the park but on a quiet street with outdoor seating. We eat there at least one time every time we go to San Juan del Sur. His pizzas are very well handcrafted and if you close your eyes while taking a bite, you'd... More

Yeah, this place is run by an Italian expat and staffed by some real Cocineras! I had the Pasta Puttanesca and it was good; hey, I was raised on the East Coast and know my Italian!!
