Love this place. Super cute setting by the sea. Very comfortable to eat and very friendly staff. Best Ravioli I have ever eaten ( and I've eaten a lot)!! So fresh and sophisticated. 2nd time I have had this dish. My wife's and daughter's plates...were equally as fresh and delicious. We shared a pizza and it was quite average sadly. Not the cheapest, but don't mind paying for quality. Overall lunch experience...excellent! Sets itself apart from the competition 👍🏼👍🏼More

We ate at Pizzeria Cahuita which is not just a pizzeria, it is a restaurant that has an amazing view of the ocean and serves great fish dishes, pasta and of course pizza. My husband and I had a dish so delicious that he asked...to speak to the chef to thank her. Our grandchildren were very pleased with their pizza.More

Saw the owner provided photos with fresh pasta and sausage. I ordered lasagna with extra bolognese, a mojito, and a side of sausage. My drink took forever to make. The waitress approached me and said, "the lasagne is pre made and you cannot get extra...sauce." I asked if I could get a side of sauce, and she said no. Many minutes later, the waitress approached me and said there was no more sausage. I decided to leave at that point. The owner or manager passed me several times with a scowl during my lengthy wait for a drink. There have to better places to eat.More

Reading your comment surely you have no idea how to prepare an Italian lasagna and this was clear from your request for an extra sausage. I would also like to clarify that an Italian pasta has its own recipe it is not a pizza in...More

Non molto italiano: If you are getting 6/6 of the “bruschetta mixte” with an overload of melted cheese, and the neighbouring table gets decent bruschette half an hour later, you know your bruschette were a cover up of a leftover. It took 1/2h to take...away my finished plate, some other tables seemed to be priority. First time in Costa Rica I see 3 cockroaches falling from the ceiling on the restaurant floor too.More

Excellent Italian restaurant with lots of fresh pasta options and good pizza. ‘Vegetable’ salad is a mixed Italian style salad, fresh and simple. There is lots of vegetarian food on offer, and I appreciated the vegan options - I had the home made strozapretti with...vegan pesto and with tomato sauce on different occasions and both were good. The owner is great, entertaining and friendly. Reservations useful — be sure to ask for a spot on the deck, which has a lovely vibe, right on the rocky shore.More

We stayed here at the Inn for 3 weeks, and after sampling almost every restaurant in Cahuita, the last week we ate exclusively at the Pizzeria Cahuita. It was far and away the best restaurant in the village. We had most everything on the menu,...and we were never disappointed. The woodfired pizza was outstanding, but there was so much more than pizza...ravioli, homemade pasta with choice of sauces, fried shrimp, fried calamari, huge beautiful salads, lasagna, lobster from the woodfired oven (my husband had it three times!), grilled fish...one night I asked Guiseppe if he could make me some grilled vegetables, and oh, my! he brought out the most decadent platter of paper thin carrots/onions/peppers rolled in olive oil & breadcrumbs and roasted in the woodfired oven. So delicious. Can't wait to come back and do it all over again.More

Excellent. Best Tiramisu ever. We enjoyed the fabulous Italian food and the typical hospitality together with a nice bottle of Italian red wine. Only the grappa could have been better.

What a wonderful experience! The setting was incredible - right on the water - the food was absolutely delicious, but the best part was the owner's attention and fun, helpful personality. He spent a lot of time talking to us, telling us his story (when...asked how he came to be in Cahuita) and making food recommendations. The food was phenomenal. Be aware that there is no "fast food" that we have found in Cahuita, including here. Slow down and enjoy the experience and you will love the Pizzeria. We sure did and will definitely go back. It's a little pricier, but well worth it!More

My mom, a friend, and visited this restaurant on September 13th around noon. The food was awesome, but the waiter wasn't nice with us. She answered our questions rudely and when we asked what the ingredients of some dishes were, she repplied "It's what appears...on the menu", still we didn't get it because many of the ingredients were written in Italian. There was a foreign family eating there, and the waiter was way nicer with them. Too bad she made such a difference between local and foreign visitors because.More

Went to Cahuita Pizzeria for one night. Pizza is good, so are the other dishes. Service is ok. The location itself seems off. The heart & soul is missing a little. Anways, good for a quick pizza.
