“Crispy Crust, Great Cheese and Oregano--Good Stuff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

There are two of these restaurants in Cuenca. The one we ate at was at Tarqui 11-45 y Mariscal La Mar. We thought it was pretty pricey for Cuenca with the prices seemingly the same as back home in the US. We ordered a Pizza in the 3rd largest size (Familiar). Then, we saw a slice of pizza going to another table. (Pizza can be ordered by the slice too.) Whoops, we goofed. Got the pizza and it was enough for three meals for two adults (we don't eat huge amount of food though).

Anyway, the cheese was great, it had too little tomato sauce, and had great toppings. The crust was good and crispy, and the oregano baked in really gave it a wonderful flavor. On the table, there were shakers for pepper flakes and, you guessed it, oregano.

The staff spoke no English, but the owner (manager?) was very kind and worked with us through any difficulties.

A nice experience and a reasonable price.

“Really good pizza.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

Pizza was really nice, the crust had great flavour and texture. The ingredients combination was good too. Not near enough sauce for my liking though. I'll try it again.

“Real pizza, lasagna, others”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2010

New York Pizza and Chicago Pizza, are both owed the same family from what the manager of my hotel said. (Chicago is on Grand Colombia a few blocks from New York Pizza), are the pizza standards of Cuenca and I agree although there are excellent Itallian restaurants and pizzarias in Cuenca and all the prices are good.

I nabbed a pizza sit down lunch and a Coke there and you are not going to find better pizza. My friend had the lasagna and likewise, good. Ambience is bland but squeeky clean and well painted and seating spaced out correctly and the bathroom actually had liquid soap and hand drier...a rarity in Cuenca. I'm talking about BOTH New York Pizza and Chicago Pizza.

And tat Chicago Pizza hey sell by the bag the "north american guy's" coffee. I found this at a few locations. El Cantaro, Carolina Book Store downtown and a gift shop of all places, Folklore Latina. Strange marketing but I guess it works. Maybe the guy has a small production? Whatever, it is excellent coffee and cheap too.
