“Tasty food, but very noisy and zero ambience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

We drove in here for dinner one evening in a quest to escape the high food prices at the W where we were staying. If you don't have a car the lower priced food wouldn't be a bargain anymore once you added evening cab fare prices. I had the pesto on pasta ($12) and my sister had the Athena pasta ($12) and we both enjoyed our food. We shared a lettuce wedge salad that was good and quite fresh ($7). The wines were OK and with one glass each our total bill came to $48.15. We easily found free street parking. They were not accepting credit cards the night we were there but apparently they do sometimes. Have cash or ask first! Just don't expect a soothing or quiet atmosphere - it's very small and noisy even when not half full.

“Only had the pizza - worth the wait.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Ordered pizza to go one evening and it was worth the wait. Very large with fairly decent topping amounts that tasted fresh and made-to-order. Nice bar to sit at and have a few drinks while you wait, too. :)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Really thanks, for the Best Pizza in Vieques.

Their pasta dishes are also full of flavor, fresh sea food and great portions. Their salads are fresh produce and satisfying.

The best server ever, Miss Tammy! Thank you too, you make an great experience simply mind blowing!!! Next time we're in Vieques we'll be sure to stop by and say hello but definitely hit some more pizza.

“Nice evening meal?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We wanted an easy meal, not too expensive and saw the comments here saying the food is so good. My husband had Veal Marsalis and enjoyed the mix of flavors. The portion was large and he had leftovers for lunch the next day. I had chicken in red sauce, not too much sauce, big pieces of chicken, enough for leftovers. The service was good and we will return, but it wasn't' outstanding. It was their last night for the season, so maybe they were not up to great things. We will try again. It was bait more expensive then I wanted but not bad.
