Don't see what the hype of this place is. Not worth my money. The service was nothing out of the ordinary. The food took too long to be served. And I've had better Italian food. The lasagna was not that great. It felt as if I was eating synthetic cheese. Not impressed by this place at all.

I always go for the Pizza. It is like I always want fresh of the oven and crispy lite and delicious. Cold Beer and good service.

I feel as though I'm being redundant in my praise of the warmth of the Puerto Rican people but everywhere we went we met outgoing and friendly people willing to engage in conversation and offer tips to make our vacation experience better. Ray, a waiter at Via Appia was perhaps the best example. While Ray was an attentive server, he... More

I used to like this place so I placed a reservation for 20 people to celebarte a birthday. In the middle of the celebration a person came to our table yelling towards us telling that we need to lower our voices, to our suprise it was the owner. I think there are manners to ask us. He should have told... More

I usually get the Via Appia pizza. Food and service and good and consistent. Just remember this is simple Italian food, not high cuisine.

Our pizza here was just so-so, the meats seemed sort of 'bulk variety' (i.e., not anything special but more like something you'd buy a large industrial package of) and the texture of the pizza a bit soggy. It was ok just not what we expected and had experienced on visits in past years. The sangria was good, cold, fruity and... More

I have been going to Via Appia for a long time and it is usually good and reliable. The last time was not so. We sat at the bar side. My son asked for beans and they brought him chick peas. We asked for the beans and it was only after we asked that we were told that they ran... More

We have been here a few times over the years. I don't know why we keep coming back. Perhaps its because the beer is super cold. But then so was the pizza. We are pizza lovers and we have had San Juan best and not quite best. Our veggie pizza here would rank among the most tasteless of all. Imagine... More

We are not local but we do come here about once a year while on vacation. The food has always been good. They have a great wine selection along with beer and spirits. There is a liquor store attached. There is inside seating and outside. The service is always better inside. The older your server the more authentic your experience... More
