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

The place is low key, the service goes with that and the pizza is great. These people giving only one star and saying is, tasteless need to go back to where ever the hell they came from. Stupid. The place is good.

The attention is terrible, waiters disspear and come back half an hour later; the pizza is tasteless, never go for "mofongo"and "carne frita" we are locals and is by far the worse we had. To make all matters worse the prices are way too high.

After 20 minutes we decided to walkout of the place. Waiter passed near us 4 times without even say hello. Horrible setting.

One of the best pizzas in town, as well as other type of food. Bar service was good and service was good.

After more than 7-9 years I returned to La Cueva. They still make one of the best pizzas around. Excellent sauce, very crusty and delicious crust, almost caramelized. Very good toppings. Other excellent choices on the menu, good "Fonda" fare. Worth returning and this time will not wait that much. Needs improvement in some areas but still has the flavors... More

This place has the best pizza I have ever had. Their pizza sauce is excellent. I have been going there since I was a kid and the pizza has maintained its same taste. The place is old and dark but the pizza is worth the visit.
