I've had better pizza at fast food pizza places for far less money. Lacked flavor in toppings and sauce was not good (sweeter and bland). Personal pizza can feed two (if not very hungry) but for like $15-17$USD it should be more than a personal. Was VERY irritated that I said I just wanted water to drink and was served... More

Vagabondo Pizzeria is next door to our hotel so we'd seen it on the first night however we were unable to visit this night as the restaurant closes on a Monday.  We decided to eat there on Tuesday because we wanted some 'untypical' cuisine.  Two of us ate there with two pizzas and two beers for less than $20.

We wanted pizza and ask a local where was the best one at La Fortuna. They suggested this place and we where very satisfied with the result. It was baked in a fire oven with a bit of flour left on the crust. The service was excellent. Loved it!

Great choice of pizzas with nice thin crust. Laid back atmosphere. Good choice of wines. This was our third visit here, and we try to go every time we're in La Fortuna.

Average at best. My husband wanted to try it out because he thought it was authentic Italian pizza. What a disappointment!!! Won't go there again.

A great restaurant. Delicious pizza. Nice thin crust and plenty of options for toppings. Can watch chef cook in traditional pizza oven right in front of you. Lots of other options on the menu too! Reasonably priced.

We came here after visiting the hot springs - which were charging $25 a person for dinner - and I'm glad we did! We shared a pizza, had drinks and enjoyed the service and atmosphere! I would recommend stopping in here if you have your own transport since it's close to the hot springs, delicious and not expensive!

A nicaraguan woman did not attend us. She said there was no space and that we cannot wait either. She is very rude! We went to don Rufinos, better choice. Rude people at Vagabondo Pizzeria!!
