Cute little place on the main road, offers pizzas as well as salads/pasta. We went for the pizza for 2 option which was 450 c for medium pizza, 2 small salads and 2 glasses of wine. Bargain!! It's not the best pizza ever but it's pretty good for Central America and we enjoyed our evening here :)

We picked up some pizzas during our stay in Poneloya. The owner is Canadian and therefore speaks English. Pizza was great and many different types. We had Largo pizza which would be a medium size in North America. Their crust is more on the thin crust side.

This wonderful hotelito is a true gem...and the owners (lovely Jen and cool Chris) only make it better. The local staff are sweet and wonderful. The pizza is perfect. The surf town is laid back, unassuming, and perfect for relaxation. And Chris serves The Best morning Americano I've ever had. Put this place on your map and stay and Chris... More

I went in asked about the menu as I am celiac and need gluten-free. The owner knew exactly what I needed and specially prepared a gluten-free pizza for me! He has trained his staff on issues of cross contamination. It was a delicious and filling Gluten-free pizza!

I dropped by two or three times for desert - the brownies and ice cream were excellent. Staff were great as well.

Nice atmosphere in this place. Customize your own pizza, thin or thick crust. They are prepared right there and taste great. The pasta dishes are also quite good. Friendly people working there and there is also a hostel type accommodation attached if you are looking for a place to stay in Las Pinitas

First, this is not only a pizza place. It is a place to hang out, listen to great music and eat with a superb view of the bay from the mezzanine of the second floor. I loved the concept of choosing the ingredients of my thin crust pizza baked in a brick oven. And my daughter was thrilled with the... More
