Great place for pizza. Loved the atmosphere, servers were very attentive. We stayed 1 night in the old San Juan at a nearby hotel. We were looking for a pizza joint and there it was! This is a must go for pizza and imported beers. Will definetly return to this pizzeria!

The pizza is fantastic, we ordered both the Pesto that had the best prociutto ever and the chorizo, both were excellent. We then ordered the Pecan Pie, fabulous! The service was very good and efficient and the building is lovely. They offer a large variety of beers including an artisan beer made in Puerto Rico. Lovely, wie will be back!

Its not just the pizza, it the whole package! The space the building is in is old San Juan at it finest! Expect there to be a wait (out the door) whenever you go. Wait, its worth it. The upstairs is much larger than the downstairs and worth a look if you are not eating up there anyway as it... More

This had become my favorite spot in old San Juan. When you are there, you now you are in a 500 hundred years old city. Reminds me of the spanish tascas. The best Arroz Mamposteao ever! I am not exaggerating. Just try it. The churrasco was very good too. They have great pizzas and a number of good tapas, for... More

Go to the second floor for a surprise setting! Amazing atmosphere with great food. A large pizza was more than enough for 4 people. Delicious

The pizza selection was great and different. My wife and I tried the Tampiquesa, which had Chipotle Carnitas and Pico de Gallo on it. Delicious! Their beer special was good too: 2 Peronis for $5. The first floor was dark and crowded, but the upstairs has a huge bar, lots of seating, and big windows overlooking Calle Fortaleza. Just be... More

Seems like no matter where we vacation or how long we're there, at some point the pizza craving hits. This is the place to satisfy that. The place has great atmosphere, comfortable seating, friendly service and excellent wine, and many beer options. We made the mistake of ordering two personal size pizzas, one regular crust and one thin. Unless you... More
