Description: Masafina features an innovative pizza concept, taking the eating experience to the next level by bringing local Puertorrican ingredients to the table. You may find a pizza with filet mignon and fried sweet plantains and mustard greens, or the well know pork "lechon"- flavored chicken with "arañitas" (shredded green plantains) with caramelized onions. For vegetarians there is pizza with the Puertorrican version of the Italian caponata or fresh fish pizza with batata or "sweet potato." This menu, paired with a wide selection of beers, including imported and domestic, as well as a complete wine list will give you a once in a lifetime opportunity to try the only Puertorrican pizza place in the Island. We are minutes away from the Condado and Viejo San Juan tourist areas. Free valet parking. Open Sunday 12pm-6pm, Tuesday-Thursday 11:30am-3:00pm and 6:00pm to 10:00pm, Friday 11:30am to 10:00pm, and Saturday 1:00pm to 10:00pm.

A good atmosphere and service is the introduction to a wonderful experience in this restaurant. The Blue Crab Pizza is simply a masterpiece for a pizza lover. It was a very good experience, my first time in Masafina.

Was very happy to experience the unique and delicious pizza they offer Was wonderful. Although... we had to complain about the "loud" and unappealing music while we were eating. We had to keep raising our voices and could not hear each other as well as the choice of music was not appropriate for this amazing food. The staff stated that... More

Masafina is located at the bottom of Miramar neighborhood in San Juan. You have to be awake to find it. Once you do, it is fantastic for gourmet pizzas, salads and other plattered dishes. One positive aspect about the pizzas is that one may choose between regular and whole wheat dough. The choice of toppings is great. One added feature... More

The variety of the pies as well as main dishes on the menu is pretty decent. Flavor was ok but it did not justify a more than $100 tab just for thin crust average pizza. It was a Saturday night but only three tables occupied and our food took forever. Nice artisanal beer selection but most of them were not... More

I like the decor its modern and colorful. Lots of options and interesting topping combinations. The service was just average, nothing special. Good enough to go again.

Unique, cute, fun.... this is an artsy pizza place with a weird (in a good way) selection of thin crusted (hence the name Masafina) pizza. Great option of beers, great service (the staff is very friendly) and the atmosphere is very cozy. Have HAVE to visit. Will not be sorry.
