Ate here a couple of times while we were in Puerto Natales. Their prosciutto and arugula/roquette pizza was awesome as was the "La Mesita Grande" with lamb!

I had the local stew which came with pasta but I didn't eat that. It was enough just the stew. But it tasted gorgeous soo much flavour and the meat melted in your mouth. My partner had the lasagne which was great too. I'd defo visit here. Staff were great and it's a really chilled atmosphere. All the tables are... More

Highly recommended. Although they were out of lamb and so we couldn't try the house speciality, the pizzas we had were delicious and by the looks of the food at other tables the same applies to the whole menu. Well priced and a nice atmosphere on bench type shared tables.

Real simple - this was our go-to dining experience. The pizzas are heavenly and the staff is very attentive, even staying open a little later for a road weary traveler.

Great pizzas without the huge amounts cheese found elsewhere in South America. We ate there three times either side of the 'W' trek and it was consistently good whatever we tried from the menu. Also had a pasta dish which was fantastic.

We went to this Pizzeria on recommendation from the hostel. The pizzas we had tried in South America (thus far) were not the best compared to real italian pizza. However, when our food came our we were pleasantly surprised when a oven stone baked, thin crust pizza cooked to perfection delighted our tastebuds! The wine was great also, and it... More

Great Napolitan style pizza. Local beers on tap. Cozy family style table. We went back a second time and recommended it to friends.

This is a wicked restaurant in a very cool building with lots of history. Pizzas are great, service is really friendly and quick and the puddings and coffee are excellent. The ice cream is home made daily and well worth trying. It's open until at least 11 so you can come here even if you catch the last bus back... More

This is a great place with excellent italian food for every budget. The place is small with only two long tables that make it very cosy. The pizzas are made in the oven in the room and are delicious. You'll have to end with the pizza with dulce de leche for desert! Enjoy.

Was the first place we ate in Patagonia...and loved every bite. Have had plenty of pizza in our lives and this rivals the best of them. Wonderful little restaurant with a lot of charm, good food, and friendly service!
