The service was almost none existent. If I tried to get a stuffs attention they looked at me and walked off into the kitchen to go and hide. One after the other. This was such a rood service by all 3 of the waiter. Then they don't even supply you with the Wifi password. They come and type it in... More

Pretty awful. Awful service, no wifi or credit cards because the boss was apparently home drunk and didn't leave them the password to get into the computer system? Absolutely ridiculous, this was at about 4pm. The coffee is instant and will run you about $4. The bathrooms were something out of a horror film, even for basic bathrooms in Bolivia--locked... More

You can find good italian food. It was the first Pizzaria of Uyuni now the place is flooded of different Pizzarias but it is still one of the best

Honestly, we only went in this place for drinks and Wifi. Surprisingly, the coktails were very good, and half priced thanks to the happy hour (quite long). The wifi is also really fast, and free...except that after 9PM, they shut it down. Also, we waited for our night train there, but the pub closes at 11PM.

The pub is known for having really decent pizzas. I didn't look for them, instead I visited searching for the most demanded and scarce service in town: a reliable Wi-Fi. Most Restaurants in town only give you wi-fi for a couple of minutes (usually 15 and are usually very unstable), whereas this place offers it for free as long as... More

We liked the look of this place and decided to try it out on our stay in Uyuni. After 45 minutes waiting I went to the bar and ask for the drinks we ordered. After 1hr 10mins and after watching 3 local couples get served before us even though they arrived after us I paid for our drinks and left.... More

A large group of us went here after coming off the tour and had a few hours to kill before getting our buses. The place was empty in the afternoon but we went in anyway. It was a struggle to get a drink (WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THERE). The guy tending the bar kept disappearing our the back,... More

The place was recommended by a local, but they clearly didnt like white people. We waited well over half an hour to order, waiters ignored our attempts to get their attention, even if not busy. Locals came in and were served immediately. We were polite so cant see what their problem was with us other than racial group. Eventually we... More

We took a pizza vegetariana which was very good (at least for bolivian standards). The pizza dough was crispy. I think one "mediana" (50-55 Bolivianos) for a person is enough, normally. We took 2 "familiares" (65 Bolivianos) because we were very hungry after a long day driving home from the tour. The strawberry-juice was not good. It seemed not natural... More

Of all the italian restaurant pizzarias on the block this one attracted us on account of the comfortable atmosphere, delicious aromas, straightforward menu, and friendly staff. Definitely worth the time and money.
