The restaurant is kind of weird in Santa Teresa. Is dark and the service no to kind. I found the pizza expensive compared to other pizza places in town.

Absolutely wonderful spot! Super cute, friendly, and everything was so fresh! The pizza was absolutely amazing.... all fresh ingredients & straight from the brick/stone oven. Definitely will return, if I get the chance to visit Costa Rica again!!
