The Italian owners are very nice people. The place by itself is no easy to find as it is outside (5 minute drive) Montezuma. The food is great and the price are normal.

The food at Tierra y Fuego is super tasty. The brick oven pizza is delicious and not too expensive. The service is just right and the owners are super friendly and attentive. The location is great but the ambiance makes up for it. Go off the beaten path and get some great food.

This place is a true gem. Hidden on the Delicias road, it was a bit hard to find, but most definitely worth it. You must stop here if you are staying in the area, this is probably the best pizza I ever tried! It is genuine and delicious, also prepared by italians, it doesnt get any better than that.

The food is fresh, the desserts are unique, and the water and soda drinks are not refills... :-) Although we spent way too much money on water and soda, the food was scrumpcious. We came back the next night, too.

This is one of the most tucked-away restaurants we've visited. We came from Mal Pais on ATVs, first during the day to find it and to make reservations, and then at night which was a big adventure. The dirt roads are very mountainous and dusty. Give yourself clearance from vehicles ahead...although our caravan of three ATVs were the only thing... More

We enjoyed a fantastic candle-lit dinner here with friends who have lived in Costa Rica for over a decade. The outdoor setting creates a stunning atmosphere where incredible Italian food is prepared and served. We highly recommend the salads and homemade pasta dishes as well as the pizza. We enjoyed outstanding service provided by an experienced waiter who was charming... More

Absolutely to die for Italian Restaurant in the middle of nowhere but well worth the find. The food is great. We went with a crowd and all had something different and no complaints from anyone. We had the best Italian pizza we have ever eaten. You could also enjoy a very romantic evening as well at this delightful restaurant. Staff... More

A fellow guest at my hotel was raving about this place and luckily invited me to join him for dinner there on my last night in Montezuma. If you like your pizza with a thick stodgy base, a scrape of tomato sauce and a scattering of your chosen topping don't bother going there! The pizza crust was so light ,thin... More

Our Air BNB host said some great things about this place as a hard to find place where locals gather for great pizza. He was right.
