“Best pizza in town”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

I will begin with the restaurant itself: The location is perfect on Guadalupe which is a pedestrian street running east west. The restaurant is on 2 levels with a tiny second floor terrace overlooking the street. This is the best place to sit!. Second choice would be anywhere else on the second level.The downstairs rooms are dark and the one on the right is airless as the windows are fixed. As well the WC is in plain view and actually directly behind one of the tables. The pizzas are freshly made and thin crust. there is a good selection of ingredients. All are the same size: However one pizza can be dressed with 2 different selections. This really works for 2 people as the pizzas are large enough for 2. Ate there twice. The first time we sat on the terrace at lunch and it was perfect. Great shared salad and 1 pizza Mexicana. Second time because it was cold, we sat downstairs in the inside airless room and unfortunately near the WC. Never again. Customers constantly entering and exiting did not make for an enjoyable evening. The second visit was for dinner and the pizzas were served cold. As well the waiter was confused and we didn't get what we had ordered so sent it back. The replacement pizza was cold!! Regardless I still recommend this pizza place!

“Thin, crispy, tasty enormous Pizza(16 inch) for approx 100 pesos”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

On our first night in San Cristobal, I wanted to eat anything but Mexican food so when we stumbled by chance on this Pizzeria (wood oven) we decided to give it a go. We were not hungry as we had a large lunch, so we decided to share one. Thank goodness we did, as we were very surprised to have such a large pizza. It was excellent and we were so pleased that we went back the next evening, but this time had one each. The waiters are very friendly and efficient. There are other pizzerias in the area but just looking at the other pizzas being served, persuaded us to go and enjoy our second night in a row. Give it a try and you will surely not be disappointed. One thing I do not suggest if having the one with garlic as this was raw and plentiful. Try their limonata which is also better than many others we have tasted in Mexico.
