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.

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.

This was my neighborhood restaurant and I think I have been hearing its name ever since I can remember. It belongs to the Julia family, relatives of Raul Julia (RIP), the actor. La Cueva means cave and the restaurant resembles one. A bit noisy because it is a favorite for groups, be it family or friends. When I was in... More

No glasses of water in the table, no napkins, a waiter hard to find, poor attention to customers, even food was not that great. Sorry, but will not return and will not take any friends of business clients to this place.
