After three days straight of asado and arroz con pollo we wanted to mix it up. Given the Italian influence in the country, pizza was a no brainer. This is a hidden gem. Isaac was outstanding and rivaled most pizzerias I have eaten at back in the states. Super friendly staff, very accommodating for families with picky eaters. A definite must in my opinion. It’s a little pricier that’s typical local food however it’s worth it.

Great Service, and delicious thin crust pizza. Highly recommend!! My kids and husband want to go back again. I loved that they had chili oil, Parmesan and dried oregano for pizza topping. Their covid protocols were well done as well.

The beet salad and pizza were really good. The restaurant has large glass windows that open to the outside. It has a really great view of the volcano and we were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the top while having lunch.

We visited Arenal and went to Que Rico / Tabbuleh twice in two days, because the food and service were THAT good! In particular, our favorites: Turkish pizza, spaghetti Bolognese, kibbeh, and the chicken shawarma. Extra special service from Edgar made our stay delightful!
