Pizza Place

“Phenomenal wood oven pizza with micro local brewery beers. Some servers are fully bilingual (Spanish/English) & most are fluent in English. Solid all around restaurant. Please note that they are closed on Mondays. Many people, Costa Ricans and expats alike travel to go eat there from pueblos around even the city of SJ! We go as a family every second month and I tend to stop by for a quick bite and try the odd new microbrewery. But don't tell Sofía ha ha!”

“Parrillada Androvetto has the best 'veggie plate' a la plancha where all your vegetables of choice are sautéed and we love it. It's right off downtown Atenas, pretty Tico style but very friendly staff and owner. ”
