Pizzeria Cahuita Reviews & Ratings
Awesome food, but even better service. This place is so close to the beach, you enjoy THE BEST pizza ever (even better than in Italy) with the sound of waves crashing. The seafood is also incredible, we had pasta and fresh fish. Desserts are also to die for.
Brilliant pizza and pasta at a reasonable price point. Pastas are homemade and top notch. Their location right on the ocean is perfect. The owner, Giuseppe was also very friendly. My 10 year old daughter said that the pizza here was as good as any she had Italy. We were only in Cahuita for 3 days but we ate here twice :-)
best pizza on our central america trip by far! it is indeed a typical Italian pizza, must visit if you spend a night in Cahuita. try the chorizo which is a homemade italian sausage!!
