I've eaten all over Tamarindo, but this was my first time to La Esquina. My only complaint is that I didn't know about it sooner! Our table had salads, pizza and an calzone. The menu offers a vast array of Italian food (some with a Latin twist), large salads, and scrumptious desserts. I can honestly say that my calzone might... More

Great place, great food! We had the margherita pizza and chicken fajita. Pizza chef is good. Chicken fajita wasn't greasy at all and all ingredients were fresh! Really enjoyed our dinner.

Soooooo delicious! Thank you for having a play area for the children while the adults can catch their breaths. All of the pizzas were delicious. The crusts were a hit with my daughter. Will come back again and again!

My first day in Tama found us at this delightful restaurant. Food was great and the owner very involved with the service.

We have been living in Tamarindo for 3 months and this is our favourite place to eat pizza and pasta, the pepperoni calzone and the sorrentinos are to die for. Highly recomended!

I think they have the best pizza in Tamarindo. They are always consistent and good, both are hard to come by in restaurants. Interesting specialty pizzas, with traditional pastas, and a nice green salad that you get to select what is in it. Always a smile from the service staff and the owners.

Ate in the restaurant once and ordered take-out another time during our week vacation. Owners are friendly and they have a small playground for the kids to burn some energy off while waiting for dinner. Ordered pizza, salad and burgers (huge portions). Locals and tourists were dining here. Definitely recommend.

I'm very specific, so I went there for this dish called milanesa, in Italy is called saltimbocca, simlar to schnitzel. It was good, simple woth french fries. My wife had the ravioli, they were good too. They have a good looking pizza oven, some friends had pizza, it was good. Average yet well made comfort food. The place looks good... More

We had the pizza and the fettuccine. Both were excellent and way too much food for two. The price is better than right and the service was great. The place was packed (no open tables) with locals and expats who all seemed to know each other - says a lot about the reputation. Big play area for kids. Highly recommended... More

Good pizza, Frutti di Mari in particular, fresh thin crust. Very nice, not expensive! I would recommend.
