Very friendly staff. East to communicate. But do try your Espanol out as well. They'll help you with that just ask! Food is great. Just don't be in a hurry and put yourself into Tico time. It's worth the relaxed atmosphere. Wood fired pizzas. We worked out way through the menu during our recent stay. Shrimp/Avocado salad was excellent, Casado... More

This is one of the hot spots on Playa Pelada. Music many nights and a wide variety of pizzas made in a real wood oven. There are also other fish and meat items on the menu, but they tend to be hit or miss. My wife had a very good tuna plate last week, but my octopus the other night... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat while in Nosara. However, this is the first time I tried the pizza which is what I'd been told is so good. Sorry, not for me. Although I like the thin crust, it was over baked with burned edges. Bland taste. I ordered the house special with 4 different meats and... More

After leaving a less than pleasing experience down the road we stopped in without any research or other. We all were pleasantly surprised! The best service we had at any place during our entire visit and the food was really great. We had sashimi tuna app, fish carpaccio, fish special and shrimp/avocado pasta. The restaurant name sounded kind of funny... More

We went to Olga's to watch the sunset, then walked to Il Pepperone for dinner! When we asked the server if pasta or pizza, he advised the pasta! The Seafood Pasta was very good! Had to ask for fresh parm, but accommodating! No prob sharing one entre...and we sometimes encounter an extra plate charge, but not here. The food is... More

Big open outdoor restaurant with a range of typical pizzas. They lean a menu white board near your table to select from, not a lot of detail about their pizzas apart from their title (like what is in the seafood or vegetarian or special pizza). No drink menu we could see so we made some unadventurous selections from previous meals... More

I really like the vibe of this place. Spacious, clean, away from the dirt road. The staff was so sweet and attentive. I didn't have pizza, I ate fish ceviche and mixed salad. I enjoyed my meal.

At first sight it looks like a pizza restaurant but they also serve great plates, I've tried the rice with seafood and the tuna and both were super tasty. Downsize: slow service.

Il Pepperoni has a great atmosphere and a good eclectic mix of people. Service was good however we felt it was very expensive for what we got. 3 Pizza's (very good!) and one local dish which was very bland and overcooked, 2 sodas and 2 alcohol drinks came to $80!
