With a nice decor this place makes you enjoy having pizza for dinner. We tried the Carbonara pizza and it was just delicious. If you looking for a late night dinner this is just the place.

I started with the empanadas sampler and it was excellent. Incredible that I had to go to a pizza place to find great empanadas in Old San Juan. I had the margarita personal pizza and it was cooked tomperfection. Also a goo but expensive collection of craft beers. Service was very good by PR standards. I will be back

I found this place on the web before our cruise ship docked because I wanted to make sure I got a good beer and my sweetie got some great pizza. They had great local beer and incredible pizza. The margarita pizza was awesome! This is a great place to visit coming off a cruise ship. It's only a few blocks... More

We ended up here because we were looking for a later dinner (around 10 PM) and everything in Old San Juan was closed!!!!!!!!!! We were promptly seated upstairs and ordered some beer and wine (they had an wide selection). We ordered a few items, and I must say, the Argentinean Empanadas were some of the best empanadas I have ever... More

This place is very good. One thing though, don't order the thin crust it is average at best. Order the regular crust pizza. They have close to 18 different pizzas you can try. The place is very cozy and the ambiance is nice. The dough is nice and the ingredients are excellent.

went here on a trip to old San Juan. Not sure why this place gets such great reviews. Nice atmosphere and service but pizza is really average. Very fresh but it is all cheese. If you like all cheese with no sauce then you will like it. I personally like a thicker crust with less cheese so I nor my... More

I questioned my traveling companions as to why we were going to a pizzeria while in San Juan, but now I know why... because it is so very good!! I shared a small vegetable pizza with one other person, and that was the perfect size. Great flavors, and the crust was just right -- not too doughy and not too... More
