Owned by a woman originally friends Sicily, she makes great pizza. We came here twice during our trip. We had the Speck piZza but the best one was the Hawaiian pizza with fresh pineapple.

Had the Parma pizza last night for a casual eat at home dinner. The pizzas are a medium size, the Parma had prosciutto, olives, mushrooms, cheese and tomato sauce.

I love coming here when we visit Tamarindo. They make amazing deli style sandwiches with fresh baked bread using quality ingredients. The owner is so nice!

affordable and good food. Right on main street, the owner works there and make's sure you're happy. He dose'nt even exagerate on the price of a good wine glass.

Had a mediocre sandwich, good coffee, but the owner seems to be a horrible person who gossips about her customers in Italian.

One of my favorite places to eat while in Tamarindo. The pizza is fresh and tasty. The owners are very hospitable and friendly. The gelato is to die for!!

Best coffee I've had in 20 days here in Costa Rica! Friendly chill atmosphere for our early morning coffee. PS: They have AC so it's also a nice place to cool off.

Gea is an absolute gem. She has owned this place for ten years, and you can tell she puts her love of food into each and every visitor. I would highly suggest you drop by for any of her delicious meals. Lovely, so glad we found you!

Straight from Sicily comes the best coffee and Gelato bar none. Husband and wife team run the place. She is awesome he can be grumpy but food and drink is well worth it.
