I ordered two types of penne pasta last week and really didn't enjoy either. The pasta was overcooked and both meals very salty. Maybe just an off night. Mauricio has been one of my favorites (after Villas de Palermo) over the past 10 years.

The Quatro Queso pizza is to die for! add some spicy pepper oil on top to give it a kick and hold on! Good service, local feel!

We've been clients of Mauricio's since he opened his restaurant years ago. It is quite close to the park but on a quiet street with outdoor seating. We eat there at least one time every time we go to San Juan del Sur. His pizzas are very well handcrafted and if you close your eyes while taking a bite, you'd... More

Yeah, this place is run by an Italian expat and staffed by some real Cocineras! I had the Pasta Puttanesca and it was good; hey, I was raised on the East Coast and know my Italian!!

Not sure who sent us here with glowing review. Mauritzio was nowhere to be found. Food unimaginative and not very good at that. Over salted. Skip this place.

Mauricio's is our absolute first pick in SJDS for pasta and pizza, and the wine selection is a refreshing change of pace in a country that's firmly ensconced in the rum-and-beer corner of the ring. Add the facts that it's affordable, features an attentive and friendly staff, a gracious Italian host and a location that's a bit farther from the... More

We went here for a quick bite and had the best pizza ever! There is such a huge selection it is hard to choose! The crust was perfect, not too thick, and very tasty. The toppings were perfect! Top it off with a Victoria and you are good to go! They also deliver, so call for delicious pizza delivered to... More
