The place is nice, and near San José. The pizza is very good. In general it has a good price/quality relation.

Best pizza I've ever had. I lived in San Pedro in 2001 and loved this place. Went back in 2015 and it was still the best pizza and the staff was all the same people. Truly a great place!

The food here is great. Everything is tasty and the best pizza, as other reviewers say, is the panzanella. The service is not terrible but not good either. It's a pity since the food is good.

The ingredients are fresh, the decoration is nice, but service is not very friendly and dishes are a by pricey. In general quality and service are consistent and you will have nice time.
