We were pleasantly surprised to find a pizza restaurant of this caliber in San Juan! We have literally enjoy quality pizzas from New York to Chicago to LA and multiple places in Europe and the pizza here was in our top five ever!! The service was outstanding and the outdoor seating allowed us to soak up the local sounds and... More

The pizzas were great though they only come in two sizes. The personal might be enough for 2 as it's about 12 inches while the grande is closer to 16 inches. Crust is medium thickness. Lots of pre-populated choices or you can build your own. A hopping place with lots of locals. It's not speedy, though, but a very cool... More

This place was recommended by several friends. It can get packed on weekends, so make sure you come early or put yourself on the list. Food is great and nice vibe. We stayed upstairs, the downstairs the AC seemed way to excessive and cold.

I make my own homemade pizza and I loved this! Not the best ever but great. What I enjoyed the most was the home made pizza sauce! Very natural tomato taste with great additional flavor. Lots of tasty toppings, and they probably put about 3/4 lb of cheese on a Grande size. I loved a lot about the dough it... More

We went to the one in Old San Juan. The pizza and the pasta (especially the alfredo) were outstanding. I'd definitely go back.

Went on a Sunday night, the restaurant close at 12 noon. Always the best place to have pizza at Old San Juan. We had some alcoholic drink and wine. Ordered the Pirilo and Argentinian pizza. Both delicious! Will come again soon.

Just stoping in to share a quick snack with friends, we ended up staying for several wonderful dishes and beers, thanks to the enthusiastic and bang-on suggestions of our fun & attentive waiter, Pepe. He knew just what we would each like from the wide beer selection with a few words, and the pizza and octopus appetizer he recommended were... More
