“Great little place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

So we stopped in here for dinner while watching it monsoon outside! The owner was so friendly and endured my pathetic attempt at Spanish. The food was outstanding. 2 large mushroom pizzas for 4 adults and 1 order of spaghetti split between my 11 and 8 year old and we left full and extremely happy. I will definitely go back this week. And I would recommend it to anyone! One word of note they do not open until 5 pm.

“Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

This is a much cheaper option than Villa Italia. Still relatively expensive though. Four ate without alcohol ( I dont think they serve it) for 50 dollars.

“great food - reasonable price - great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

One of our favorites in t Coco. We were there in June - which is the slower season. The restaurant is only open Thurs - through Sunday. Perhaps it is open every day in the busy season. :La Caveja is run by a wonderful friendly Italian couple. The first night we had Lasagna - best ever. The pasta is homemade and incredible. Then next night I had a pizza, my wife had spaghetti Bolognese - again excellent. Be forewarned - if you are planning on a thick, doughy, bread type crust - you will not find it here. But one taste of the this marvelous thin crust pizza - you will forget all about the thick bready type crust. The next night my wife and I split a small pizza and an order of spaghetti. Just great...would recommend to everyone!!
