The pizza is very good, with a big menu and lots of options. The pastas are also very good, the arabiata sauce is one of my favorite ones. The gnocchi sis not very good, a bit too salty. The restaurant in Momentum, Pinares has great service and very good prices.

Pane e Vino in San Pedro and the PEV (Pane e Vino) in Momentum Plaza are both good. The San Jose is better than the Momentum Plaza

Momentum Plaza:
The sign above the place says Antico Forno but the name of the establishment is Pev Pinares. It is one of the collection of restaurants in the Pinares Plaza. It invites you with the sight of the wood fired brick oven. I ordered one of the antipastos as a starter and a plate of hot mushrooms lightly sauted, slices of smoked mozzarella, a thick slice of serrano ham, roasted
eggplant, some chunks of parmasan and a slice of raw salamon. The parmasan was high quality and had a nice nutty flavor and the mushrooms were simple and had a nice earthy
flavor. The salmon had very little flavor. I ordered a passionfruit dacquiri and a smoothie arrived instead. Not bad but not the same.

The personal pizza was the shrimp, salmon and arruga selection. The crust is very thin and crispy from the hot oven. After it is cooked the arugula and salmon on added. The shrimp
were cooked with the pizza and were very tender and sweet. The arugula looked the worse for wear being limp and wrinkled. However, the flavor was great and went well with the shrimp and cheese.

I tried one of the borsellino offerings for dessert. It was a thin crust wrapped around several dollops of Nutella. The warm runny Nutella was good matched to the slight saltiness of the
pizza dough and finished nicely by the strawberry sauce that is dripped over it.

On a second visit, I tried the seafood pizza which again had the juicy shrimp, and this time with clam and squid to add to it. No arugula but it was not missed. The second try at a daquiri was more successful but still a weak offering.

There is an English menu and one of the servers is fairly conversant.

San Pedro:
We went to lunch here frequently since it is close the office. It was fast though not rushed and the food was excellent. You enter on the lower floor and go up to the dining room on the second floor. The decor is simple and comfortable. You are immediately served and when an order is placed in less than 10 minutes your plates arrive. We tried the antipasto, lasagne, pizza and several pastas and they were all uniformly were prepared and tasty. The pasta tastes fresh and the tomato sauce is smooth and flavorful. The desserts are good, having tried the flan (panna cotta) and the tiramisu. Service is friendly and efficient. I look forward to my next visit.

Everytime I come with my family I promise not to come back again. Still we made an exception because we were invited. The food was bad prepared. There was a pool of can tomato sauce in my spaghetti a la Puttanesca. Save your money and time and go safer to Il Pomodoro. Better off by far.

Pizza was horrible, not enough cheese... Customer service sucks, waiter seemed annoyed to tend to the table. Way too overpriced!
