Enjoyable Restaurant With Great Food and Wonderful Service.

I am here for the first time for an appetizer and a beer. The first floor is an old bar and several tables for dining. Up the stairs to the second floor is a more open, modern space. I sit at the bar and the charming barmaid, Doriliz, is attentive, friendly and informative. I order a Carne Frita... read more

As a Chicagoan visiting San Juan, I thought no pizza could be as good as Chicago's. Wow was I wrong! Five stars, ahora! I came here with my fiancee and a group of our friends. Everything we had was stellar. The pulpo (octopus) and potatoes were delicious, the sangria was great too, but the pizza... oh the pizza! The crust... More

Stop here before or after your trip to the Forts. Great pizza in a cozy, friendly place in the heart of Old San Juan. We ordered a large pizza for two adults (half and half) and one small for our son....turned out to be way too much pizza but it was fun trying all three types. Great vegetarian options, great...

If they had Gluten Free crust, I would eat her at least once a week. But the Caprese Salad and Shoestring Fries with Cilantro sauce keep us going back regularly anyway!

My wife and I went here to try the pizza at the suggestion of my 22-year-old Puerto Rican niece. A couple at the next table were eating Lasagna and it looked wonderful. I am diabetic, so I am always a little concerned about the pasta. No need to worry here; about all the pasta there is, is the bottom and... More

Stopped here on the recommendation of a friend. Glad we did! The pizza was outstanding. The sauce was homemade, and there was no shortage of cheese. The Pina Colada was the best I've ever had. Not too sweet, with pieces of coconut throughout.

We were fortunate enough to be directed to this fine pizza restaurant/Italian restaurant/bar on our last night in Old San Juan. We were staying literally right across the street at the Casablanca Hotel and looking for a simple dinner after 7 days on a Windstar cruise and several nights sampling other food choices in the old city.
