“GREAT FOOD & VALUE - IN A BEACH TOWN - AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

We ate at Corleone during our visit to Cahuita during Semana Santa. We started with a typical tomato and boconcini salad. But, the real star of the night was the Swordfish Carpaccio. It was amazing - so fresh and light. I could have eaten 5 more.

For the main course we had pizza. The portion size was plentiful and the toppings were of better quality. The thin crust was one of the best I've ever had. That includes pizza I've had in other parts of Costa Rica, San Francisco, NY, etc...

It was also really good value. I don't mind paying a bit more great food. However, I do mind paying a huge surcharge for eating in tourist areas. Good to know that Corleone isn't was of these - it's very reasonable.

“Underrated Italian food in Cahuita”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

I know, pizza in Costa Rica doesn't sound that appealing. I was a skeptic, especially coming from NYC, though when eating here over February break I was pleasantly surprised by their pizza. The wait staff is very attentive and the open airy feel of the space is a great match for the jungle.

Note - I suggest the Gorgonzola pizza.

“The Best Pizza in town just got better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

I was saddened to hear that Corleone's had closed their doors after I left Costa Rica to go home to Canada in March this year. I visited Cahuita again in October 2011, and was really happy to hear a new owner had purchased and opened it again. I took my wife and kids on opening night and was really pleasantly surprised that the pizza was significantly better than the previous owners. The previous owners made fantastic Pizza. This was even better! Thanks for a nice night in the sweetest, most down to earth village/town in Costa Rica! Pura Vida, Cahuita!!
