We were pleasantly surprised at the pizza and the price. We bought five pizzas for 8 and took two bixes of leftovers home. The Sicilian was awesome but the garlic bread was so so. Price for 8 was an incredible deal.

Great good ole Pizza. Great to eat out, or pick up and bring back to your place. It seems like every restaurant in Costa Rica does pizza...but El Forno does it well

We needed to pick something up for dinner so we stopped in and ordered 2 pizzas. They took our order and in 15 minutes we had 2 delicious pizzas.

We ended up here because everywhere else was booked, so we figured we give it a try. All the dishes came out great, and the service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. Sorry we did try the pizza.

The place is very small, it is in front of the Conchal Beach but the food is great, the 4 seasons pizza is amazing, the portions are big so it’s good for shearing.
