Definitely the best pizza I've tried so far. I loved everything about it, from the environment to the service, food and prices. The crust of the pizza was perfectly crispy despite the fact that it is not wood fired oven pizza. The restaurant was fairly empty with two or three other tables waiting for food. We got our food within... More

We visited this small restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Food was good, service very good and a short walk from the Park Inn Radisson where we were staying.

We were staying in a nearby hotel, and looking for a short walk and a good meal. The Corner fitted both criteria perfectly. Various pizzas and risotto were tasty, and ambiance great. Don't expect white table cloth or deep chairs, but if you want to eat Italian in San Jose, this is a very good choice. Service is particularly good... More

We had a pizza, penne puttanesca and burrata and all tasted great. This is my second time in six months and the ambiance has considerably improved. Also have great music mix. Highly recommendable.

Pizza is my favorite comida. I've been to some of the best places all over the world - London, Sydney, Copenhagen, New York and many many times to Italy. I've also often found great pizza in unusual places. On this trip I found it in a small place in the mountains close to Machu Picchu, in a small beach hut... More

If you're a pizza lover, this is the corner you need to visit in San José. The "Suprema" pizza is a must here. Try it with a Bavaria Dark on the side. Trust me. Simply delicious. It's a nice place to come as a couple. Or with a group of friends. Lovely place, lovely music, lovely decoration. Congrats.

Thank Darío L
