We got to have Pizzeria Pura Vida deliver to our Villa (Kiskadee). It was wonderful to stay in and enjoy authentic wood burning oven pizza - just like Italy ( I used to live there so I'm picky)! Also an inexpensive way to have one of your meals taken care of while you are in Quepos!

Ordered a large Margarita pizza and a medium 4 Formaggio to go. Both were horrible, threw away the Formaggio it tasted so bad. I don't know what the 4 cheeses were, but one they tasted like the cheese had gone bad. The Margarita pizza had red sauce and a scant amount of cheese. Disappointed.

Since I live in NE China where pizza is rare and pizza with anchovies is unheard of, I REALLY enjoyed the pizza that you order by the meter; quarter, half and whole. I ordered the quarter meter pizza and enjoyed every morsel.

We all ate there one night when we decided to go explore Quepos and Manuel Antonio at night. The prices were fair and the pizza was delicious. Our kids enjoyed it a lot.
