We go to eat here 2 times, and we were the only tourists. At noon, they have only a fixed menu, with entrée, potage, choice of 4 mains and a little dessert. Big portions for a very cheap price of 18 boliviano's. Very clean. Go early (at 12 a clock) to have a table, because it is very busy. Recommended for a good and very cheap meal!

This place is off the square so less of a tourist trap. Always full of locals so you know you won't be ripped off. Two people can easily share a 'Familiar' sized pizza (the biggest they do) and be stuffed. They'll even make it half and half for you. Costs about $70BOL between two people, so an absolute bargain for the hungry traveller!

On the downside the one waitress is a bit moody, but in fairness to her the poor thing was rushed off her feet. Also if you sit near the door it gets a bit cold as there's a constant stream of people in and out collecting takeaway.

Most importantly though, the pizza is fantastic! Light, crispy dough and tons of toppings including fresh tomato and real mozzarella. Highly recommended grub, but helps if you speak some Spanish ;0)

This Pizzaria surprised me positively. Lunch time they dont have pizza but a 4 course Lunch menu for 3 dollars and the soup is served in french service. Cheap food and great service.
Dinner time you can order a Pizza. We ordered the biggest size with 8 slices and the price ranges from 40 Bolivianos to 70 Bolivianos depending on the toppings. The crust is thicker and loads of ingredients on top. Happy to have found this place!

Both lunch (menu with soup, mains and desert) and dinner (pizzas and others) are very good, especially for that price. This place is also very popular among Bolivians.

The pizzas ok the price but it is not a place to go if you are a tourist... i do not recommend it for travelers and it was not the cleanest place... anyway for the price the food is ok and it is a fast food without environment for visitors
