Yes, we think it is. Super-thin crust, great selection of toppings by an Italian chef (of course). Quick and friendly service, ice-cold beer and very reasonably prices. What a treat!

We ate at Cafe del Pueblo the last night of our vacation and it was excellent. There were nine of us total (four adults and five teens) and we all had a delicious meal. Highly recommended!!

We ate here twice during our stay in February. The staff is very friendly, service is quick and the food was great, whether it was pizza or their fresh pasta. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone to try at least once.
