Unfortunately the restaurant near the plaza is closed for renovations. There is also one on Avenida Murillo next to the Corte Electoral. We jumped on a public bus and got there without a problem (should say avd. murillo). We shared a big one, they also do half/half on the toppings. The service was fast, the pizza had a rhin though...

Stumbled across this place after 8pm and it was really busy. Luckily managed to snag a table at the back but didn't realise you are meant to order and pay as opposed to table service. The waiters were nice to us though and let us order from them and pay after. Ended up with really nice wood fired pizza and... More

Went there after reading good reviews. The place was crowded of local people, only one table free, next to the open kitchen. Nice to see how they are made, clean, fresh and fast! A medio size is enough for a hungry big guy, would take a small next time. Would definitely recommend!

They make great pizza for low prices. I like that you can watch them preparing your pizza while you wait! Definitely recommended.

Tasty pizzas at a good price. A huge array of toppings to choose from. It's usually busy but there are plenty of tables out back, near the ovens. The place doesn't look like much, but the pizzas make up for it.

The receptionist at my hostel recommended this place to me, and I am sure I will be going back. I ordered a personal pizza for 25bs, and it was really good & a decent size; I ended up taking half of it with me. The server was really friendly and helpful too, definitely recommend it.

El Mana is the most popular pizza joint in Potosi. There's 2 restaurants; one is a block below the main plaza and the other is in the lower part of the city on Avenida Murrillo. Pizza is good and the restaurant is always busy in the evenings. My only caution for those visiting Bolivia is that pizza isn't usually served... More

Super nice pizzas! Dont let the entrance fool You! When You go in and look to the left You see the spot where they bake pizzas. A totally other and very charming atmosphere than You meet at the entrance. The pizzas are really great and fairly priced

Pizza is amazing! Baked in wooden oven. We tried anchous and cappers. Huge potion cost 65. (enough for 3) But if you looking for atmospher it is not for you. Place looks like fast food. Not turistic, but crowded with local.

The pizza's are baked in a wood fired oven. Very very tasty. Can't beat the price either. The Mediana size is sufficient for two. Only thing they can improve is the temperature of the beer.
