Service was excellent! Our waitress was patient with our butchered attempts at Canadian Spanish, and she was very mindful of a food allergy. The pizza. I've read "underwhelming", and can only guess that it might just be people who left their tastebuds elsewhere, or who were expecting a Boston Pizza or something of the sort. The thin crust is excellent... More

Great food and very relaxed and calming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and kind. Beware the chicken meals are gigantic! Highly recommend.

Right off Highway 34 but restaurant poorly marked. Once we found it we had an excellent Sunday lunch. My wife had a very good wood-fired pizza with meat, mushrooms, and onions. I had pasta with shrimp (lots of shrimp) in a red sauce. Nice atmosphere. We'll go back.

We ate here with the family, because from outside we find it nice. The service was ok, nice polite people, but the food was really forgetable. I ate a pizza with my son... I do not remember which type was it. In Sibu was much better! In the end i paid cash, and they tried to forget give back...

Food is always consistent and staff is always friendly. We have tried most items on the menu and they are always very good. My favorite is the pizza which is thin and perfectly done.

We recently spent three nights at Hotel Luz de Luna which is part of the property. We had breakfast and multiple meals here. In our party of five, no one was disappointed. Phillips was a tremendous help.

LA FOGATA makes the best mojitos any of the three of us ever had! Minty, limey, a perfect balance of flavors and served in a tall cylinder of frosted glass that seemed to enhance the drink. I ordered a salmon carpaccio - very good; twice a caprese salad was ordered by another of us, as was a personal pesto pizza;... More

We loved eating here. The ambiance was very nice, the pizza and the chicken were delicious, and the Sangria was perfect. If I hadn't been driving I would have had another :-).

It was good enough to go back a second night. They also make great margaritas and mojitos. The selection of pizzas are quite varied and they all look great.
