Great homemade pizza at an affordable price. Prompt service. They also serve Local Puerto Rican cuisine. This place was owned by Raul Julia's family.

This restaurant was the first to make pizza in Puerto Rico and the recipe is unique. Also, don't miss the "chicharrones de pollo" with home made fries, probably the best in San Juan.

After many years, I visited the island. As is usually the case, one tends to go back to those places that you remember with love. The Cueva is one such place. Don't be misled, this is not about the memory of good food. This is good food and above all excellent pizza! The local is a little dated, but looks... More
