If you ever find yourself driving to San Juan del Sur from Managua and need a bite to eat, stop by in the cool hill town of Jinotepe. The small town of Jinotepe boasts one of the best Italian restaurants in the country. Pizzeria Coliseo makes some of the best pizza in the country. Don’t go to Nicaragua to have Domino’s pizza or Pizza Hut.
Coliseo serves some of the best pizza in the country. The owner learned his craft in Naples, Italy and Coliseo serves delicious authentic Italian pizza. The décor in the restaurant is simple yet clean but the delicious thin crust pizza will make you think you are in Italy having pizza. From your table you can see them hand tossing the dough that will be used for your pizza. Consider getting break sticks to eat before your pizza comes out of the oven. The bread sticks are amazing and a great starter before the main course. Coliseo also serves a variety of pasta dishes and other Italian dishes. The restaurant is located just a couple blocks from the center of Jinotepe and the Pan-American Highway.
The restaurant is closed on Mondays and most of the month of January because the owners are out of the country.
