The best thing I had was the garlic bread roll before the pizza arrived. I'm not sure why all the glowing reviews here regarding the food and the value because both were average to me. The service was OK.

I was hoping to eat real pizza while visiting San Jose, Costa Rica. And I found the best Corner Pizzeria in Costa Rica. The pizza was delicious, and the service was superior. I love the service, and the vegetarian pizza was like no other I've tasted. Perfecto!!!

Stopped into corner cafe during a stay at Aldea hostel after being offered a discount to the restaurant as part of my stay. I ordered a glass of house red wine which was poured with a smile while I looked over the menu. Found a beautiful salad to order but was told they were out of goat cheese. I was super disappointed but Amir, the owner, offered to make the salad with other cheeses and promised he would make it 'nice'. I trusted him and I'm so happy I did. The resulting salad featured fresh mozzarella, fresh parmigiana AND smoked mozzarella, Caramelized red onion, beets, arugula and cherry tomato. It came with all the perfect accompaniments like crushed red pepper and minced garlic in olive oil and some nice bread to mop it all up with. Paired perfectly with the wine. Add the deliciousness to a great playlist of eclectic international music, friendly accommodating service and great conversation and you've got a perfect evening. Tables also run along a nice stretch of windows which wrap around the corner and make for great ppl watching.

We took our family down to have some great looking pizza...walked in the rain and the place was closed, on a Friday night at 5:30.

Too bad C.America hasn't learned about using websites to advertise w hours of operation.

This is a lovely little restaurant with welcoming and friendly staff. The food is distinctly "home made" and simply delicious. The ambience is very relaxed and unrushed yet the staff are attentive. What a find. The only drawback was that not everything on the menu was available.
