The restaurant at our hotel. It is off the street and quiet atmosphere and unassuming atmosphere. The pizza is really excellent, and we split a large special salad to accompany a medium pizza on 2 occasions and could not finish after two helpings. These are not Michelin stars, but for what it is it is excellent

We ordered pizza from El Pulpo last week during our vacation in Santa Teresa. For starters they told us 45 minutes and 2 hours later they finally arrived.

We stayed at manala and eat here a couple of times. The pies were great we had a pepperoni and a margarita pie. The margarita was more like a cheese not your typical margarita was it was good nonetheless. It was never crowded and service was fast. It's a cash only spot so be prepared. They take US dollars too.

Ordered a Hawaiian pizza from El Pupo, and we were not disappointed. Tried other pizza in Santa Teresa, and El Pupo is where it is at.

Located within a hotel grounds this pizza joint dished out the best pizza in santa teressa, I checked out the competition and they were just ok. Price wise its inexpensive does wine by the glass. We were the only people in/out (it has no walls at the front) so atmosphere was not the best, but the pizza was goood.
