For 68 years serving the comunity and still good.

The place is not flashy but people seems to dress nice to go there, it is kind of dark inside, remember the name, Cueva which means cave in Spanish but if you want the best chicken chicaharrones in PR this is probably the place to go.

We've been going to this restaurant for 20 years every time we go to Puerto Rico. The pizza is FANTASTIC!!. The crust is amazing. Just know that a large pizza isn't so large. It's always 3 of us and I could eat a large by myself. They do have English menus. Not much English is spoken and why should it.... More

The architecture inside this place is like a cave !!! Beautiful !!! Excellent family restaurant, excellent service, excellent prices. But the most important thing is the Pizza. The best Pizza ever !!! They also have excellent international food. Everything is good there, but you have to try the Pizza. You'll never regret.

Personal attention is one of the best i have encountered, and with the food you get more than what you pay for in terms of flavor. I absolutely love this place every single time i go. Try... More

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.
