Deliciously cheesy pizza!

This place has amazing pizza! I was impressed. There are probably 20 different types of pizza and pasta. You can also make your own. You also get a huge pizza for a great price.

Really good food, nice to have a change from some of the sorry excuses for pizza you can receive elsewhere in Nicaragua. Quick service also and friendly enough staff

Do not be put off by this tiny hole in the wall of a restaurant. The GM of our hotel recommended it to us and said it was the best Italian restaurant in SJdS. He was incorrect, because as far as quality of food , authenticity, and taste, I would say it was better than most Italian restaurants in Los... More

Busy, busy on Sunday night. Everyone having fun n. Mauricio runs a great place. Very good thin crust pizza. Fresh assortment of ingredients. Reminded us of Italy. Did not try pasta but hear it's good. Will definitely go back next trip.

I am a huge pizza lover and this place used to be one of the best, not because their pizza is that good, but because there just wasn't any real awesome pizza in San Juan... but there is a new place in town near the market (I won't name them here) that is now no.1 in my books! Mauricio's is... More

At first I thought it was a dump, then I saw - and tasted - the pizza. Among the best pizza ever. Good authentic Italian style with tasty ingredients. Service was quick and friendly. Price was very reasonable and fair. The owner was also on site making sure things were done right. Highly recommended.

Urning for my pizza fix an my wife her big salad we heard this was top 1 or 2 in SJDS. I got basically a meat lovers pie and made quick work of it - fantastic. My wife enjoyed her salad though mostly iceberg lettuce. We understand that Maurizio makes his own pasta dishes and next time must simply ask... More

Such good food and prices! My mom and I split a margarita pizza and plate of spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce. Both locals and tourist a like eat at Mauricio's and it's definitely a spot to go back to! Total cost of the meal was under $15.

We ate here at the recommendation of a local expat. We heard that the pasta was great and therefore both decided to order from the pasta list. I chose the linguine with the bolognese sauce and my boyfriend chose the linguine with a seafood medley. The flavor of the bolognese was great, however the red sauce was very watery. I... More

We returned to this restaurant 8 times in a two week period, need I say more. Pizza, pasta, tuna or steak, Mauricio wiill make what ever you want the best you've ever tasted. Ask for the daily special and get ready to lengthen your stay in San Juan.
