don tonito's pizzeria
Artisan Pizza Rooted in Local Culture
Flanked by towering bamboo and individually-thatched private palapas, Don Tonito’s striking stone pathway promises an unmatched Neapolitan-style pizza in the rainforest. High-quality ingredients—like arugula from the Lodge’s 600-acre garden and fresh cheese from the Mennonite community nearby—rest atop a soft, circular dough that meets a crackling fire of over 600 degrees Fahrenheit. Dine on the patio under starlit skies across from a licking fire pit, and indulge in perfectly-charred pies that boast the right combination of crunch and chew—a craft perfected by our local pizzaiolos.
Topped with herbs hand-picked from our garden and local Mennonite cheese, this is not your midnight pizza run. Don Tonito’s specializes in wood fired pizza baked in custom-made traditional fogons for that ultimate crisp in every bite. The fogon is lit up early in the morning, burning with chopped wood and carefully monitored to achieve the right temperature. From the in-house tomato sauce to the bright arugula to the drizzle of vinaigrette – expect only the freshest of ingredients on your slice.
