What can I say, we ate dinner at this restaurant 4 times during our 2 week vacation. We sampled 2 different pasta dishes, the pizza, the chicken milanesa, the shrimp tacos and the bombon dessert.

I come to Guanacaste monthly. Dan and Nati are the greatest and their food the best. I had been ordering their seafood pasta so often that Dan finally told me I should try something else. I had the kabobs. Great comfort food all around. As you can tell from the other reviews, the pizza never disappoints either. Go there.

This is a tiny little spot right on the road, but they still create a nice ambience. Their pizza was one of the best I've ever eaten. Their service was great. I saw a little play area four children inside the restaurant.

Some of the best pizza we have ever had anywhere! Wood fired, thin crust and great sauce.. that is what makes a wonderful pizza. Prices are very reasonable and the service is very friendly. We highly recommend this spot!

I chose the Chicken Neapolitano and my wife chose the Fettuccine with a chicken and cream sauce. Both were well presented and very delicious. Nice thing was the owner topped up my banana shake when it was empty as he had some left when he was making it. He also gave me some extra garlic bread to mop up the... More
