The crust is excellent, tomato sauce tasty and the (veggie) toppings were fresh. Pizza was well baked and it never let us down on the four occasions we took it away to the hotel room. Cheaper pizza on the lunch menu rules ok, too!

A last minute option on a busy Saturday night and we were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter Geraldo was fantastic. Despite being very busy we hardly waited for anything. The Calamari was beautifully tender and more than enough for two, and the pizza was excellent, with plenty of fresh Parmesan to top it off.

Not the best meal but good pastas and pizza and when full, which it was on our first visit, this place has some ambience at reasonable price.Wines seem overpriced in Mexico so beer was a good alternative. The dark beer went well with our meals.Our service was fairly prompt and the waiter pleasant. We returned several nights later and had another cheerful meal. Not brilliant but worth the visits.

We are pretty seasoned travellers, especially to PDC. The service we had last week was simply the worst we have ever encountered. We had to beg for bread and were told 'please give me a second'. This was after sitting for 45 minutes. There was a toothless guy in a Tshirt and shorts working the restaurant not sure if he was the owner or what but he kept walking around talking to wait staff and shoving forks of food in his mouth!! The waiter just dropped the check at the end not even a thank you. The food was pretty good though hence the 1 star. Much better Italian a block away. NEVER AGAIN!!!!

The reason that this place is packed all the time is because the wait for your ticket takes forever. We didn't get our wine until 30 minutes after ordering it and when asked for la cuenta...it took 25 mins just to get. Other than that the pizza was great.
