Pretty good pizza and faina

I'm not certain whether this listing is for all locations or just one of the Montevideo locations of El Horno de Juan. I see they have pizzerias in Pocitos and maybe Carrasco (Av. Italia). I visited their location in Mercado Agricola. The pizza with mozzarella was pretty good. Lots of cheese... read more

I expected a bit more. Pizza is ok and you have just that : the rectangular Uruguayan pizza with many toppings available. Be aware of asking for mozzarella ( pizza in Uruguay may come without it if you don't ask) location is nice and the place is typical, not fancy or romantic

The pizza was is not as great as we're told, it's just an average pizza that I would recommend to change/upgrade the receipe. The cheese is not real muzzarella, the sauce is too light in taste and the pizza dough is pre-made, so you'll not have the taste of a real nice and fresh pizza... Regarding the faina, it could...

The pizza here isn't the kind that'll blow your mind. It's just good enough to be tasty. It's way better than the pizza that you can get in those chain stores like Pasiva or whatnot. My observations: - Crust is thick - In my opinion the pizzas are a bit too cheesy, but that's really just personal preference - Pizza... More

The pizza was absolutely amazing, the faina was delicious!!! I reheated the pizza the next day and it still kept it's crunch and tasted so good. This place makes my mouth water. As for the service it took a long time just to order but once in the food came fast. This is my pizza place!!

at the hostel, the staff recomend this pizzeria... and they were right when sayng "oh! you need to go here... they make the best pizza in Montevideoo" a good tip: in Uruguay, if you ask for pizza you're gonna get it without the cheese... so make sure you ask for a MUZZARELLA if you want the regular one ;)

I've been to El Horno de Juan in Portones and it is truly the best pizza in Montevideo! Although you can't call ahead to order nor do they deliver, the wait out in the cold is definitely worthwhile. They are a few pesos more expensive than other pizza places, but the extra few cents are worth it. They are my... More
