Italian in CR, yes Very good pizza. Mozzarella cheese was used, all other pizza places used local cheese, not ones should be used on pizza.

Went here on the advice that it was the "best pizza in town". We only tried pizza at one other place, but based on that small sample, I'd still have to say, it's no better than the second best. It was fine, even good, but...More

Having 2 young boys we ate at a few different pizza places in the 10 days we were in Tamarindo. This was by far the best pizza we had.

La Baula is a creative, rather good, reasonably priced pizza place with an outdoor playground as part of the restaurant property that kids of all ages will love.

I like the pizzas here, they're thin and crispy and loads of topping (pepperoni). There's a good atmosphere with lots of space and big tables - all the better to enjoy the food with friends or family. The service is good and prices reasonable

The pizza here was so fresh and delicious! I would absolutely go back in a heart beat! The ambiance was also great, very open and nice lighting. The prices were par for the course in Tamarindo. Definitely give this place a try!

You cannot call for delivery. However, most restaurants in Tamarindo (including La Baula) are on ticotogo. Just find them on ticotogo, place your order on line, and the pizza will be delivered plus a $5.00 delivery charge.

I know it's probably too late to answer your question, but just in case other people wonder. I will make this as detailed as possible. Say you are coming into town, to make it easier: you pass Hotel Diria, and 100 meters... More
