Enjoyed the caprese salad and the gorgonzola cheese pizza. Just like I was in Italy - including the motorbikes, pedestrians and Mauricio!

Best home style thin crust pizza. I am not a fan of thin crust but this place changed me. Great flavor and good prices. A nice style atmosphere and friendly staff.

I don't know why this place is allow to put table on the street and not the other restaurant. Maybe the guy pay more ! The restaurant is very good and the tableas outside let you enjoy San Juan life style. Close to the parque you will ear all the kid playing untill late at night.

Been for dinner many times now and always good. Fast and delicious. I like sitting outside. My favorite is the diablo but I also like the hawaiiana. Good service.
