My wife ordered Pesto Pizza with prosciutto and said it was delicious. I do not eat Pizza but had a plate put together by the waiter (not on the menu) including several meats as well as rice. It was delicious as well. Both portions were plentiful. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. Place is very small and can get... More

You cannot leave PR without trying pizza here. It's a taste of Italy in the heart of the island. There are many choices, the service is great and the ambiance very appropriate for a pizzeria.

We visited Puerto Rico in November 2014 as a family vacation, We dined here and loved it so much we returned here again on our last night of vacation. It's a very warm and romantic restaurant with unique architecture of Old San Juan. We shared several different appetizers (raviolis and empanadas) and pizza. Alot of toppings and you can half...

We went on a very crowded night to this very casual restaurant. We had to wait about an hour for a table. It was loud and club/bar atmosphere but the food, service and drinks were very good!!

It is a beautiful location and very Old San Juan feel. Other than that, pizza is good but not worth the money they charge. Waiting for a table can be ridiculous for what they offer and would not recommend it. I would not eat here again for there are better places for better price.

Any restaurant that gets busy at times (and this small location gets busy!) will suffer in areas I consider important. Servers seemed over worked and stressed. Our pizza took nearly forty minutes to arrive.... We speculated that this could be on purpose to get us to order a second round if beers while waiting... On empty stomachs on a hot... More

You know when there is a line of people waiting outside to get in that the place must be good! I had the Butternut Squash stuffed Ravilio! It was awesome! I would highly recommend this location!

We have been here twice now while visiting Old San Juan. This is a small bar/restaurant on a busy street in a central location in Old San Juan. Walk in and grab a seat if your timing is good, but, be prepared to stand for 30 minutes during busy times. Most locals and tourists seem to gravitate to the "sangria"!... More

Great atmosphere - lots of music and conversation. Small seating area, so you might have to wait, but it is worth it. Portion sizes are large. A small pizza could easily serve 2. The salads were delicious. We were even treated to an impromptu song from street artisans. Great way to end the meal.

Because I had eaten here the last time I was in Old San Juan, I was determined to come back. This is some of the best pizza I've ever had. On a Monday night, when most restaurants were closed, I was able to call in a pizza at 11:30 for pick up. I didn't have the menu in front of... More
