Went with the family and the attention from the staff were very pleasant. Everyone were very kind and the waitress took her time to explain everything about the menu since we were first-timers. The food was, in one word, GREAT. From the appetizers to the pizza and the piña colada (which they called "Cocotazo") everything was very tasteful. Everything was... More

The second time I have been to this restaurant. Casual atmosphere. Near the center of Old San Juan. Close to shopping area. Pizza is very good. This time I had the meat Lasagna which was good. Sangria was a nice flavor. The location is small but they have many tables. The word "quaint" comes to mind. Want to note this... More

If you love pizza this is one place you should visit when in Old San Juan. The service was excellent, the appetizers were awesome and the pizza was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. This place fills up pretty fast close to prime time so I would suggest an early dinner or late lunch.

I was looking for a good casual place that we could take our family for lunch. It's small in size, but big on taste and service. We were greeted at the door by the hostess, and told it would be about 5 mins for a table. She took our drink orders by the time she put the order in we... More

Beautiful old Spanish building with exposed bricks create an excellent place to have a delicious pizza. Fresh fruit juices, awesome piña colada, and the acerola monitor are a must. Here is pizza heaven, the best and delicious fresh ingredients. Must visit.
