Was told this is best pizza in town. It was pretty great for 7 dollars, but I'm partial to thicker pizza with soft chewy crust. This crust was like a cracker and super thin. Extra thin pizza seems to be the San Juan norm. This could be the place for you, however if you want similar pizza with better crust... More

Pizza is wonderful. Cooked in a brick oven makes the crust crispy. The service is always good and all the dishes are made with fresh ingredients. The owner has 2 pizzarias in town and he is Italian. His other place across from the church has a mozzarella stuffed crust that he only makes at that location. It is delicious.

Normally I'm not the guy who looks for Italian food abroad but after 10 days in the forest eating rice and chicken a good pizza was really great. Trust me it's really a good authentic pizza Service is faster the you usually find in Nicaragua

It was good, ladies and gentlemen! Better than I expected to find in Nicaragua. I don't know what else to say.

This is my kids go to place for pizza - tried one of the pizza only places in town but this better. Pasta was also a hit with the kids. They however do not take credit cards. Pizzas are big enough to share and beer is cold.

My linguini with clams lacked flavor. Maybe they forgot the garlic?! The Chardonnay by the glass was really, really bad (when in Nicaragua, avoid miscellaneous wine). The service and view were very good. Prices were moderate for the area. The pizza looked great--should have ordered that. Oh well.

Really enjoyed the pizza as well as the great location on the beach. If you are a fan of thin crust pizza then I highly recommend this restaurant. The white pizzas were somewhat reminiscent of a tarte flambee. Overall great meal, just wish they had better wine.

Lots of variety on the menu and pretty good service. Would go back again. The three of us all enjoyed it and it is on the beach.

I consider myself a very tolerant person, as I'm a Nicaraguan costumer I need to give an objective point of view. Food (4) Price (4) Service (1) Poor client engage. No credit card payment accepted. Bad attitude personal. Need some globalization here. There is so much quality in San Juan that is just unacceptable to have a place that wont... More
