The first night we enjoyed a truly italian meal experience at Mauricio's that started with a procuitto appetizer which was a special. We then ordered the spaghetti bolognaise and the carbonara. Both were excellent. Having traveled to Italy and having some amazing meals (and some not so amazing italian in Nicaragua) this place was authentic. We decided after finishing our... More

Our kids loved the thin crust pizza and pasta - it was perfect spot to relax from the heat and enjoy some Tona's

We go here at least twice every time we come to San Juan - pizza and pasta are always excellent. Service is good and its great for a crowd because prices are sooooo reasonable. They recently expanded to include a lovely courtyard across from the town park, so plenty of places for kids to play while you are waiting.

Yes folks it does rain in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua and the best thing we have found to do is to order in. The ONLY place that delivers (right now that we know) is Mauricio's and they do it rain or dry. With guest at our hotel we just watch the lighting and enjoy the rain showers on the... More

We generally have a rule that we only eat at a restaurant once (especially in a place like SJDS where there are many options). We ate here twice and picked up a pizza for my two younger kids who were not feeling well one day. All three times we were at the location by the water so I can't speak... More

The owner has two spots, one on the beach and one by the Church. The pizza is thin crust Italian. Baked in the stone oven. The restaurant on the beach, you can stand there and watch your pizza being made. The food is top notch for sure. The only thing negative I have to say is the one on the... More
