Not sure who sent us here with glowing review. Mauritzio was nowhere to be found. Food unimaginative and not very good at that. Over salted. Skip this place.

Mauricio's is our absolute first pick in SJDS for pasta and pizza, and the wine selection is a refreshing change of pace in a country that's firmly ensconced in the rum-and-beer corner of the ring. Add the facts that it's affordable, features an attentive and friendly staff, a gracious Italian host and a location that's a bit farther from the... More

We ordered 10 pizzas for dinner. This was perfect for feeding us and all the kids. Pizza was great and kept us from treking into tow for the night.

Every time we're in SJdS, we are sure to plan a meal at Mauricio's. We absolutely love the authentic Italian pizzas and pastas (the ravioli is our all-time favorite) served up at very reasonable prices considering the quality and quantity you receive. Thanks for a terrific dinner on our 10-year wedding anniversary! We'll be back...

I love this restaurant and Mauricio himself! Flavors that remind me of my travels in Italy and my love for pizza can be enjoyed in my favorite surf town in this world! Super grateful for this authentic Italian experience when I´m tired of beans and rice. All dishes are created with quality ingredients made by Nicaraguans working side by side... More

This place has amazing pizza! I was impressed. There are probably 20 different types of pizza and pasta. You can also make your own. You also get a huge pizza for a great price.

Really good food, nice to have a change from some of the sorry excuses for pizza you can receive elsewhere in Nicaragua. Quick service also and friendly enough staff
