La Fogata has top notch wood fired pizzas with toppings ranging from the mundane to the extravegant. Their spit roasted chickens are slow roasted and mouthwatering.

Who doesn't love a good pizza. Great stop for lunch when in or around Uvita. Service is usually with a smile, prompt and attentive. Love the Chile Infused Oil, condiments of Garlic, Chile and more. Good Selection of salads and pastas. Check it!

We walked up from the beach and had a wonderful pizza dinner. The staff brought plenty of water and the accoutrements for the pizza were lots of fun!
