Cheap thin crust pizza

I'm a fan of thin crust pizza so needless to say I was very happy with the pizza at Tuscani since it was almost cracker like. We ordered the pizza with chicken, onion, and mozzarella. It's not the best pizza ever, but for Guatemala it's a real good pizza. For beverages we had "punch of fruit" and... read more

Gourmet Meals! Best salads. Best Pasta. Best Pizza in Pana. We were in Pana two weeks and went to Tuscani about 4 times. It was one of the best meals we had in Guatemala, especially the Chicken Picata (Cynthia's favorite). The chef is Walter, a Guatemalan who learned his trade in a five star restaurant in Houston, TX. He's even... More

The restaurant itself is a little small, and it looks simple, but the food was tasty and reasonably priced. I got a churrasco with the typical Guatemalan accompaniments, and it was great!

I really enjoy the food here. The chef has been attentive in preparing foods that satisfy our hungry vegan palates. But after several visits, I've had to lower my review a notch. Why? The service. It's not horrible, but it's not great. And the fact that I couldn't get the server to bring me a glass of water made for... More

Ate lunch here with family and friends at the end of our mission trip. We ate at other places during our stay at Lake Atitlan, but Tuscani stood out. A family run restaurant, we got to talk with the owner who actually cooked former president George Bush. I had the Tuscani pizza which was bursting with flavor. Everybody had the... More

Great location just in the middle of Panajachel's main street Santander! The pizza is amazing! The only negative thing i gotta say about the place is the cockroaches! They might just be sitting next to you enjoying your pizza! Watch out !!!

This place is located towards the end of the street towards the water. It is a small "Hole in the wall" type operation. Do not expect a large fancy restaurant. The beer was ice cold. The pizza was thin crust and delicious. The owner "Walter" was friendly and had some interesting stories about his past escapades. The price was very... More

I don't like that Tuscani is closed on Tuesdays because then you can't get the best pizza in Panajachel. staff doesn't speak English but the menus are in English and Walter, owner and pizza maker extraordinaire does. Pizzas are a great meal for one and are consistently delicious. The wait staff are friendly and eager to serve. A great place... More

We ordered two Salmons (were good) and two SeaBass. The Seabass were too dry. The bread was not fresh at all. When asked, we mentioned these two problems. The owner refered to the bread and insisted "it is fresh from the day before...."
