We visit this neighborhood restaurant regularly, and while it used to be good it has really gone downhill. The place is crowded and you will likely wait for a table as the patrons linger long after they are done eating. We were there a long time, 3-4 tables around us were done eating when we arrived and were still there... More

Hi Susan! Hope you are doing fine! So sad to hear from your bad experience! Fridays are one of the busiest days of the week at Pitipuá and the last one we were running short on staff, no excuse but that its the truth. The live music was part of a birthday celebration of a very special person for us... More

We had three appetizers, no meat, and a delicious Tiramisu. I believed Lorraine was the waitress, who was very helpful suggesting us different no meat plates. We did have a great experience and...

Very expensive compared to its location, size of the restaurant, chairs were very uncomfortable. Ordered a shrimp rissotto that had 5 small shrimps and the rest tasted like "arroz con leche" my grandmother used to make me, Must tell you that the waitress was excelent. the only good thing that night.

This is practically a new restaurant based in Cupey. All the selections I have tried have been very good. Nice served, good attention and a nice mix of typical food with a gourmet twist. At the time I arrived to pick it up, food was ready to go.

Love risotto pitipua, mamposteao pitipua, mamposteao gandules. Good service. The food is authentic Puerto Rican with gourmet touch. Great variety to choose from with a splendid taste. The portions are big. The pricing is reasonable.

Pitipua is a relatively new restaurant in our neighborhood. Its menu is nicely varied and versatile. It offers traditional Creole dishes such as "corned beef a caballo" corned beef with white rice and a fried egg over, very tender fried pork meat ... Just as modern and very innovative dishes such as tacos wrapped in dough of bacalaitos filled with... More
