We eat at La Fogata at least once a month if not more because the food is consistently good, lots of options on the menu, beers are cold, the staff and owners are great, and the setting is convenient and comfortable.

This place presents itself as pizza place. Problem is that the pizza is not very good. Not awful but not very good. This establishment would fail in the US in three months. The beer was cold and the people were nice.

We loved this restaurant so much we returned more than five times. Great drinks, wonderful stuff, lovely outdoor setting -- they even have live music.
