Very good pizza

The pizza was really very good - nice crispy crust and flavorful sauce. The service was not great but that's a general theme on the island.

Real pizza dough, fresh ingredients, this crust, so delicious. Pizzas are the best item on the menu!

I had bruschetta and pizza and the bruschetta came out pretty soggy, so much so that it got sent back to make it at least a bit crispy. The pizza was alright but by no means anything special, quite a thin base but all of the ingredients were pretty bland. There was some rude diners in there too and the... More

We ate here a couple of times due to the lack of restaurants on San Andres as everyone seems to eat all inclusive in their hotels. We shared a pizza for around $30.000 since pastas were between $25.000 - $35.000 which is incredibly expensive. Even the pizza was for what it was and the meat was clearly very cheap. We... More

We stopped here for a late dinner. The vegetarian pizza was really good. The pizza his huge and 3-4 people can eat one. The staff was friendly and sat us immediately. You do have to ask for the check / bill, but other than that, they were very attentive and timely. Nice spot.

Even though we read some bad reviews on tripadvisor about the service in that restaurant, we decided to give it a go and we do not regret it. The service was very good (perhaps because it was low season) and so was the food. We shared a ginormous seafood risotto and even came back another day just for some beers.

Perhaps I was expecting too much from a restaurant with an Italian name and a waiter who spoke Italian. This one is in a great location and affordable, but we were not impressed by the pizza. The cazuela was very good, but the pizza not. The crust seemed like it was pulled out of a box in the frozen foods... More

I like this place, nice meals, good prices, just they need to work in the service, they are not fast and sharp, but in general a good place to lunch

While the wine is decent and pizzas are big i would not come back here. The pasta was a dissapointment. prices were ok for the centre of the town and service was very friendly but i would go somewhere else.

We were lucky to get a street side table and watched the world go by whilst eating very good bruschetta followed by two different pasta dishes. Bottled wine was quite expensive but there was the cheaper option of house wine by the litre/half litre. The service was good and although there were people waiting for outside tables when we had...
