Great food, cozy atmosphere and excellent service. I couldn't help but purchase a beautiful small painting while we were there. This is not a place to miss in your travels!

“Decent pizza. Interesting decor.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Stopped by this place for a quick lunch. My stomach was feeling a bit queasy all morning, so I needed something that would settle it. I opted for the Clasico Pizza and it hit the spot. Not too greasy. Tasted home-made. The space was nice and the owner was friendly. I would recommend the food and would probably go back there again, but I must admit that the artwork creeped me out a bit.

Do you ever think about what the consequences of your review might be? Do you ever think, even though the pizza "hit the spot" and "the space was nice and the owner was friendly" I'm going to single-handedly drive away all possible Tripadvisor traffic with a small remark like "the artwork creeped me out a bit"? Was there anything on the walls by HR Giger or Damien Hirst? No. There's a painting of Jesus looking down on Jerusalem. There are a handful of tasteful nudes. There are some portraits of Mayans. Some flowers. And a man who puts his heart and soul into his business every day of his life, and with a careless remark you have just given people a reason to never set foot in my place and find out why 95 people rated it Excellent.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

Great place for a quick lunch. Pizza was nice and staff were friendly. Spoke with Alex and was glad to hear that our leftovers were given to the homeless as we didn't want to take them. Won't be disappointed

“Great Sauces but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

I had the steak with a berry sauce and my beloved traveling partner had chicken with a guava sauce. Both sauces were excellent, but overwhelmed the meat. My own opinion is that in order to truly succeed, a dish needs one flavor or texture playing off another. For example dark chocolate can have a lovely interplay between the bitter and the sweet in the chocolate. Sobremesa has some original sauces, but isn't quite connecting the sauce with the meat or coming up with a contrasting taste/texture within the sauce. The pizza looks worth a try, and the friendliness of the staff is wonderful.

Considering all the free drinks you bullied my poor waiter out of, I'm not surprised you consider his friendliness wonderful. Shame I arrived too late. My customers complained to me about you both, and my staff were happy to see you go. I hope you find some lovely interplay somewhere else.

“The Most Innovative Chef in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Every week there is a new dish, a new flavor of ice cream or dessert. The combinations of flavors, ingredients and presentation never fail to amaze me and having eaten from the best restaurants of San Francisco and Las Vegas, I'm always impressed by the culinary wonders that come out of this small one-man kitchen.
