One time we braved the crowd for lunch. We were very impressed with the wood fire Pizza, the fresh produce and... read more

The bartender made a delicious pina colada... one of the better ones I had in PR. Also, they had a special 2 Peroni beers for $4 during the... More

Hands down the best service we had in San Juan. The pizza was awesome and I love the decor and ambiance. We were in the upstairs portion of the restaurant which is decorated really cute.

We came here on a Monday evening with 4 adults and one toddler. I have to say that we truly enjoyed this experience! Everything we ate was delicious, the craft drinks were phenominal, the pizza was creative and delicious, service was fantastic, and the dessert was amazing! Do yourself a favor and stop here if you can!

The pizza is excellent and although not the cheapest the quality of the ingredients justify the price. I can not say the same about the craft beers, too expensive! Service was good and ambiance loud

The atmosphere here is really fun and in a great part of old San Juan. We put our names in for a table and walked around the shops until we got a call that our table was ready - REALLY NICE! The drinks were great, but thing not to miss is the fried chips as an appetizer. They have lots... More
