Thanks to Trip Advisor, we stumbled upon this quaint establishment nestled on a quiet street next to the beach. We were staying at a resort about 20 minutes away and didn't feel like making the trek to San Juan that evening. I'm so glad we tried something different because the atmosphere, food and service was delightful. There were only 6... More

We ate with our two kids at Pasta y Pueblo and really enjoyed the meal. We had to wait one hour, 15 minutes to get a table. They only seat around 15-20 in this small venue. The menu only had a few selections but we all enjoyed them a lot. The entrees are served on pasta with your choice of... More

As locals to the area, my wife and I have been to Pasta & Pueblo twice and each time just as great. The food here is out of this world. Chef/Owner Alfredo and his wife Jessica are two humble people that are not trying to get millions out of their business, but rather make a humble living, as they will... More

My husband, two twenty-something year old kids, and I shared a terrific meal at Pasta y Pueblo in early March I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to eat there - the outside really does looks THAT bad. As expected, we waited a good 45 minutes for a table, but the night was warm and there was... More

Excellent food - great prices. Met the owner/chef - Freddie. He's a sweet guy and totally passionate about his food. Make sure you ask what's not on the menu - there are sometimes specials based on what is caught that day. We had Coconut Curry Lobster served over Penne Pesto. Sounds crazy but it was amazing. The lobster was caught... More

I cannot say enough about the cuisine. Never expected to find a meal this satisfying along the Luquillo beach. Funky surfing and skateboarding atmosphere, and service can be slow. Meal is worth the wait. Bring cash, because no plastic is accepted.

The food was delicious. My husband said it was the best lobster dish he has ever had. It looks like a bit of a shack but don't be misled it is awesome.

When our friends took us here, I couldn't believe my eyes. It looked like a surfers shack on the edge of the ocean. I really thought they were crazy. We waited quite a while, but once you realize that they aren't interested in turning tables, they just want you to have a great time, it's easy to have a glass... More
